We visited three wineries, and really enjoyed them all. The wine museum at Koytsoyannopoulos was interesting: lots of history there... the displays equally interesting but had some "interesting" quirks; at the tasting, our sommelier was very knowledgeable. But the highlight for us was Venetsanos -- the view was amazing, we got to know our fellow travellers a little more, and the wines were really nice (we appreciated the food served with them as well, at all the wineries).
Our guide (the owner of the wine tour company) was very knowledgable and had prepared an inyeresting tour, which gave a good view into Sanyorini wines. Whereas the tour included visits to three wineyards, the guide suggested substutiting the last wineyard with a restaurant visit instead - we were very happy with this suggestion! The wine tour and restaurant visit made for an exceptional experience of Santorini and I can only recommend to go on this tour.
We had an exceptional time. Our driver Nikos was prompt and a wealth of information about the wineries and the island. The winery visits were good. The first did a great job showing the local methods of viniculture relevant to Santorinr. We felt the second location had the best descriptions and food pairings. The third had a stunning placating and some delectable wines. Felt it was well worth the cost.
Our 4-hour small group wine tour was much more than we expected. It was such an amazing experience and our tour guide, Nikos, was a very knowledgeable guide on both the island and wine production. Nikos made our trip unforgettable as he even pulled over on the side of the road so we can have a breathtaking view of the sunset.
Perfect way to see a lot of the island in a short amount of time. Brilliant to get those classic Instragram photos of Santorini. Very good value for money compared to how much taxis would be to and from these spots. The transfers are very easy and being dropped off to and from your hotel is brilliant.
