Full description

Start your tour with a visit to Venetsanos Winery, which is located in the most breathtaking location, offering incredible views over the caldera and volcanic islands.

Have the chance to discover its unconventional structural design, constructed from above and moving downwards before tasting three of its exceptional wines. Continue with the wine museum in Mesa Gonia and get a glimpse of what life was like as a winemaker here.

This one-of-a-kind museum happens to be nestled in a cave, a natural labyrinth eight meters below ground and 300 meters long, twenty-one years of hard work of the Koutsogiannopoulos Family.

Learn about the stages of the winemaking process including ploughing in the vineyards, and then harvesting, stomping, and weighing of the grapes, about the range of machinery necessary to make wine all the way through to what is used today.

Refresh your palate by tasting the family's renowned volcanic wines. Your last stop will be Oia and Sun Spirit Bar, one of the best places to watch the sunset. Relax and enjoy your wine in this idyllic space, as you watch the sunset deep into the sea.

We loved the wine tour! Our guide was incredible detailed and gave us so much information, not only about wines, but also about the island. We had a great group of people and recommend this to anyone looking to explore the island a bit more - the sunset at Oia alone was worth it!

Fun, diverse experience. Lots of wine and a good little tour of the area – made me feel more comfortable driving around later. The wine cave in particular was a highlight. Wife’s thoughts: something to do; not an emphatic endorsement but still a good time. The couple with us were great.

Chris was a fantastic host who was so passionate about the wines and the island he is from. All throughout the tour he was giving us information about the islands history. We got to taste 7 different wines and got a free glass at the sunset location which was superb, beside the windmill in Oia.
