Visit Boutari Winery, an estate considered as a winemaking institution in Santorini. Learn about its winemaking heritage, and visit the private cellars to see where its award-winning produce is left to ferment and mature. Continue to the tasting room to sample four glasses of wine, and enjoy a platter of local cheese, olives, tomatoes and bread, too. As you sip and savor, learn about the wine from the estate’s own wine-expert guide.
Your second visit is to Gravalas Winery, a traditional Greek wine cellar that dates back to the mid-19th century. Explore the old cellars, seeing the huge vinsanto (dessert wine) barrels, and then visit the foot-stomping room where grapes are still crushed by foot! In the winery’s quaint backyard, enjoy another wine tasting and sample up to four glasses of wine made with regional grapes such as assyrtiko and nykteri.
On your way to the coast, stop at the Yellow Donkey brewery (excluding Sundays) to break up your morning wine tour with an introduction to the island’s beer! Sample ale, blonde and IPA beer, and learn about the characteristics of the malty brews from your guide. Then, head toward the sea for your final wine tasting — this time on the beach! The wine produced at Gaia Winery is matured on the sea floor, roughly 492 feet (150 meters) underwater.
After visits to Boutari and Gravalas wineries, head straight to Santo Winery for a wine tasting with sunset views. Take a seat in the tasting area, and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine before finishing on a high note — with a glass of the winery’s legendary vinsanto wine.
