About this Tour
The island remains the home of a small but flourishing exceptional wine industry that produced from grapes grown in the volcanic soil of the island! Assyrtiko is an indigenous vine , Athyri and Aidani an Aegean vine, Mantilaria and Mavrotragano are just some of the distinctive varieties that you can taste at the island’s famous wineries.
Visit three wineries that we have selected for an ultimate gastronomic experience. Learn about the grape varieties and the vines that are extremely old and resistant. In their adaptation to their habitat, such vines are planted far apart, as their principal source of moisture is dew, and they often are in the shape of low-spiralling baskets, with the grapes hanging inside to protect them from the winds.
Gavalas family winery, one of the oldest wineries in Santorini, lies in the traditional village of Megalochori.
The purpose of our family is to highlight the particular characteristics of Santorini’s “terroir”. The fourth generation winemaker is George Gavalas and the fifth is his son, Vagelis.
Venetsanos winery is located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the magnificent caldera of Santorini. The Venetsanos family has a very long tradition of producing wine. Originally was produced for the island and subsequently, it was exported extensively, and particularly to countries such as Russia. It was built in 1947 by the Venetsanos family and became the first industrial winery on the island.
