TOUR AND TASTING

Visitors receive a brief presentation of Santorini’s wines, and then choose the tasting they wish to have from a variety of tasting programs in one indoor and one outdoor place. The tasting session lasts about 45 to 60 minutes. Visitors will then tour the premises starting from the traditional part of the winery (the old wine cellar and wine press) and then continue to the modern tanks, the bottling line, and the winepress. During the tour, guests are introduced to the history of winemaking on Santorini and its unique local characteristics.
Purchases can be made at the winery’s shop.
