Full description
Start your tour with a visit to Venetsanos Winery, which is located in the most breathtaking location, offering incredible views over the caldera and volcanic islands. Have the chance to discover its unconventional structural design, constructed from above and moving downwards before tasting three of its exceptional wines. Continue with the wine museum in Mesa Gonia and get a glimpse of what life was like as a winemaker here. This one of a kind museum happens to be nestled in a cave, a natural labyrinth eight meters below ground and 300 meters long, twenty one years of hard work of the Koutsogiannopoulos Family. Learn about the stages of the winemaking process including ploughing in the vineyards, and then harvesting, stomping , and weighing of the grapes, about the range of machinery necessary to make wine all the way through to what is used today. Refresh your palate by tasting the family's renowned volcanic wines. Your last stop will be Oia and Sun Spirit Bar, one of the best places to watch the sunset. Relax and enjoy your wine in this idyllic space, as you watch the sunset deep into the sea.

    It was a wonderful time

    I was able to spend a wonderful time as shown in the image photo. Visit and sample two wineries (with delicious snacks) and enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset on Oia's lovely terrace. When the reservation is confirmed, you will receive an email about the pick-up location, so if you reply, it will tell you the time and place. I was saved because he came to a place near the hotel where I stayed. The guide, Joanna, was a very nice person and kindly taught me the history of Santorini wines. Although I had only an understanding of junior high school English, it was a very good study because he explained it based on gestures. In the evening, there are many customers watching the sunset, so it is quite difficult to go by yourself, but I think it is very efficient because I was able to get off near the hotel by minibus. Recommended optional!

    Joanna was sensational!

    Great experience. Absolutely a highlight of our trip. The booking information was all very confusing but once the tour started it really didn’t matter. Our guide was Joanna and she absolutely made the trip. She is so passion about what she does and is great at her job. In no time she had us all very comfortable, having a great time and learning so much along the way. The last stop at the subset bar was amazing! Such a treat! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone in Santorini wanting to visit some wineries and make new friends.

    A must do, especially with Joanna!

    Joanna was an amazing host and very knowledgeable sommelier! Simple yet entertaining and educational on local wine, and the island's history. The entire group had a great time and enjoyed the end of the night with a sunset in a special place in Oia!
