From Fira: Santorini Wine Tasting & Wineries Private Tour

4. From Fira: Santorini Wine Tasting & Wineries Private Tour

In this tour our main goal is for all the guests to experience the uniqueness of our most famous local product – Wine!!! We will begin our tour visiting Argyros Estate, a winery with great history as it was established officially in 1903 although the Argyros family has been involved in wine production for decades before that. It is the largest private owner of vineyards in Santorini and the current landholdings exceed 120 ha, a vast, four-generations-long investment. Estate Argyros works almost exclusively with old vines because only these vineyards can provide the depth, the definition and the concentration needed to produce the desired style of wine. Our next stop is Artemis Karamolegos Winery. Based upon the solid foundations of granddad Artemis’s winemaking tradition since 1952, the winery made a dynamic entry in contemporary winemaking in 2004, when grandson Artemis Karamolegos invested in the production facility and the privately owned vineyards, producing wine of protected designation of origin (PDO) for the first time. Almost 15 years later, the wines keep earning prizes at international and domestic competitions while our export activities continue to grow on a yearly basis: we are currently the third largest winery of Santorini in terms of production volume. In between the winery visits it is always nice to have a look at the amazing landscapes of Santorini… The next stop will be a small surprise in one of the most famous spots on the island.. At the end of our tour, we will visit Santo Wines Winery. This winery located at the top of the cliffside and combines the amazing views with very interestingly flavored wines. The Union of Santorini Cooperatives, Santo Wines was founded in 1947. Today, it consists of the largest organization of the island representing all the cultivators and counting 1.200 active members. Santo Wines produces highest quality Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Santorini wines and products as well as promoting sustainable agriculture development. After your visiting the third winery you will be transferred back to your accommodation.

Andreas and Natalia were great. This tour is perfect way to see Santorini and feel like you saw all of the island. Going first thing in the morning allows you to go see Oia before the cruise ships arrive. It’s so nice to have Andreas drive & Natalia describe what you are going to see. One of our favorite parts was going to Art Space Winery https://artspace-santorini.com/. The tour is so interesting and learning about how the grapes grow and how they make their wines while strolling through the art is very cool. We finished with lunch at the Black Sand Beach Perissa. Very neat to see. For a family of 4-6, this is the best bargain in Santorini. I would recommend to people going to Santorini their first and additional times.

This was a great experience and allowed us to see more parts of Santorini that we otherwise would not have been able to see or get to. We were able to customize the stops that we made, so we saw places like Akrotiri, Imerovigli, Santo Wines, the beach, and the village of Megalochori. We were very happy with the amount of customization and the care and attention we received from the driver and our tour guide, Nick. We highly recommend this experience for anyone interested in seeing more of Santorini beyond the main tourist locations.

It was the perfect tour. Angelo helped make it a memorable experience and showed us all that we wanted to see. The great thing about a private tour is you can change it to suit what you would like. Would highly recommend

Natalia, our tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. Very punctual and we got see highlights of beautiful Santorini in 6 hours. Highly recommended.

Theodore gave us an excellent experience! He was very friendly and knowledgeable, we had so much fun! Absolutely recommend!!
