Learn about Santorini’s indigenous grapes and unique vine-growing methods, admire the countryside as you go and the island’s scenery as you taste and explore.

After pickup from your Santorini hotel, the port, or a central island location, settle inside a premium 7 seated Land Rover luxury 4x4 vehicle with a driver-escort. Then, head into the rugged countryside to visit two carefully selected family-owned wineries, each distinctive for its architecture, panoramic view and red and white wines. As you travel, hear about Santorini’s long history in winemaking process, local products and history.  On arrival at each estate, learn about its traditional or modernised winemaking processes, view the vineyards, and wrap up with a delicious wine tasting. Taste the different wines introduced by your sommelier or the estate’s wine host, and enjoy them with tasty local products. Learn about the indigenous grapes that go into each wine, taste a total of 10 different wine styles over the course of your tour, including some rare top cuvée wines and the signature wine Vinsanto.

Stop at a vineyard to see the island’s very unique vine-growing methods close-up. Winemakers train vines into kouloura basket shapes on the soil to shelter the grapes from Santorini’s winds and sun, and counter the harshness of the volcanic soil. After our winery visits, we take a scenic tour of Santorini’s agricultural areas, where products like fava beans and cherry tomatoes also thrive in the volcanic soil and finish our tour with a drop-off at the original departure point.
