Taste the unique wines of this volcanic island in some of the best wineries with this private wine tour in Santorini.

The volcanic island of Santorini is very famous for its wines because of the different climate, the volcanic ground and the way in which the vineyards are growing. The wines of Santorini are very rich in minerals with high flavored notes, also the unique shape of the vineyards(small and rounded baskets) helps them keep the ground’s moisture.

With this private wine tour in Santorini, not only will you taste every different selection of the local wines but you will also get an insider’s perspective of the wine making process

What to expect

Your private driver will pick you up from your hotel in a comfortable, air- conditioned car. Along the way you will have the opportunity to admire the fantastic sceneries of the island while your driver will share some interesting information with you concerning Santorini’s history and the local wines.

You will visit up to 3 different wine estates and taste up to 10-13 different local wines such as Vinsanto, Assyrtiko and Mavrotragano accompanied with some nibbles of Greek made products such as cheese, olives and bread.

Explore the wine cellars and see the wine making procedure, starting from the harvest of the grapes and maturing the wine before bottled.

Walk around the vineyards – inside the wineries and let the professionals demonstrate you on how they make those unique wines.

Frequently asked questions and tips

Can I create the whole itinerary based on my interests?

Yes, of course. You can arrange with your driver which places you want to visit, how much time you want to spend per place or if you want to add an extra stop for food or drinks. Everyone has a different personality and different needs, so every one of our tours offers a personalized experience.

What happens if there are kids or elders and do we have to be in a good physical shape?

Every one of our drivers is a professional, knows how to modify every different tour and to handle special requests depending on the type of participants to make an unforgettable enjoyable experience for them.

What kind of clothes and shoes is needed to wear?

It is recommended to wear easy walking shoes because there are some specific areas where you may need to walk on uneven or rocky ground and comfortable clothes to feel relaxed and cooler especially during the summer months. Also if you are interested in visiting some religious monuments, please dress appropriately.

What is the private sightseeing tour?

The private tour is hiring a car and a driver for a few hours to go and explore the island. But with “Cozy pickups” you will not only have a well- trained professional driver, but you will also have the opportunity to learn some very interesting information about the heritage, the culture and history of Santorini from a “friend”

Useful tips:

During the summer time in Greece there are high temperatures and the sun is very hot. We recommend that you wear sunglasses, sunscreen and possibly a hat to protect yourself. In every one of our sightseeing rides we offer bottles of fresh water for every individual to stay cool and hydrated.
