Next stop can be the unique Wine Museum of Koutsoyannopoulos located at Vothonas village. This museum happens to be nested in a cave and because of its unique position this natural labyrinth is eight meters below ground and 300 meters long. With the Koutsogiannopoulos family’s knowledge and historical exhibits, guests will get a glimpse of what life was like as a winemaker here. There you will combine the wine tasting with the study of traditional wine preparation. We can finish our special wine trip in an exceptional architectural structure of Venetsanos winery. Located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the magnificent caldera of Santorini, Venetsanos winery was built in 1947 by Venetsanos family and became the first industrial winery on the island.
