A Santorini wine tour is one of the most popular things to do on the island. There are so many varieties to choose from and it’s worth having a sip of as many as you can! Thanks to Santorini’s volcanic soil composition that is rich in minerals and the high levels of humidity easily absorbed by the ground, grapevines have been flourishing on the island for a notably long time; the island has a wine-making tradition that dates back to the ancient years and started becoming globally appreciated during the Middle Ages. The geological uniqueness and the climate result in grapes that produce some of the finest wine in the Mediterranean that is currently famous all over the world. Wine production contributes a great deal to the country’s economy and some of the local wine types that are commonly exported are Vinsanto, Nychteri, and Mezzo. You will surely find at least one bottle of Santorini wine in the cellar of any wine collector with a sophisticated palate.
Traditional Santorini wineries are scattered around all over the place, although most of them are located in the central and southern parts of the island. You will find them in Mesa Gonia, Exo Gonia, Megalochori, Pyrgos, Oia and Monolithos and even though you can certainly visit them on your own, we highly recommend taking part in one of the organized Santorini wine tours available.
