Start this memorable wine experience with a transfer from your accommodation to the meeting point, where you will be introduced to your local expert guide and commence the tour. Your first stop will take place at the Volcanic Slopes winery. Starting from the exterior of the winery, where you can find layers of the black volcanic stone, you’ll pass by old spaces where the wine ages before ending up at the extraordinary cellar. Following the tour around the winery’s premises, you will indulge in a wine-tasting of 4 varieties of Pure Santorini Assyrtiko that will ignite your senses along with a platter of local cheeses and cold cuts from selected small producers, traditional rusts and crackers, dried fruits and nuts.

Your second stop will transpire at the Gaia Winery, where you will further enrich your knowledge about the winemaking process and Santorini's unique, volcanic terroir. Gaia's winery is housed in an old tomato factory dating back to the early 20th century. There, you will taste the adaptability and versatility of Assyrtiko, the prevailing local grape. You will taste 4 top-rated local wines under a pergola by the beach, savor a side plate of breadsticks, olives, tomato paste, and cheese sit back, relax, and revel in the beauty of the island.

Last but not least, the final stop of your tour will take you to Avantis Winery, a winery that is solely devoted to Santorinian wines and showcases the benefits of the volcanic microclimate from the native grape varieties. In Avantis, not only will you have the opportunity to taste 4 different local wine, but you will also accompany each wine with 4 corresponding plates of lunch that will compliment each variety, creating balance and elevating the wine experience to a whole new level.
