This was the most unforgettable experience. Anna was an unbelievable guide who educated us on the unique wine making in Santorini from the basket vineyards to wine tasting in Gavals and Venesantos Wineries. We walked through the village of Megalochori and discussed early Santorini history and village life. After wine tasting at Gavalas in the middle of the village, we were driven to an agricultural area where local tomatoes, eggplants and cucumbers are uniquely grown. We then had a cooking lesson making traditional fava dip, tomato fritters, Greek salad, and local cooked vegetables. Afterwards we sat outside eating what we cooked and drinking wine and dancing to Greek music with Petra (who owns the farm). Then we were driven to Vensantos Winery overlooking the Caldera with the stunning views. Anna made the tour so wonderful and we left with a hug. Tasso drove us back to our place and even stopped in Firá for a quick order of loukoumades. All in all, the most incredible tour.
We had an excellent time on our tour, it was kept very small and intimate and each winery we visited had a lovely variety of wines and ambiance; each unique. The cooking class was very fun, the best part was the recipes to take home! After all the cooking we were able to have a nice dinner of chef prepared creations that were the same as we made in the demo kitchen. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who love food and wines.
This was an unbelievable experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Nikos, our guide and wine expert, was knowledgeable, funny, and certainly understood the needs of the group. He was able to tailor the tour to our needs. Thalia, the chef, and her assistant were outstanding. Again, Thalia too was able to assess our group and adapt her cooking lesson to all our needs. Well worth the money!
Denis was a a hilarious and knowledgeable guide. He taught us about winemaking in Santorini interspersed with his own comedic commentary. The wines were delightful and the cooking class both enjoyable and instructional. My only suggestion would be to add high bar stools to the counter we used for food prep as it was a LONG time to stand on concrete.
This experience was much better than anything else we did in Greece. Every aspect was well organized. I did this with my college-age daughter who enjoyed it as much as I did. Constantine was a great host and very knowledgeable about wine, food and the island.
