As you travel, chat with your friendly guide about the history of wine production on the island, and learn about the different varietals that you may try throughout the day.Producing some of the most distinctive wine in the Mediterranean, Santorini owes its success largely to aspa, a unique blend of volcanic soil that gives the wine its rich minerality and light flavor. Grapes are grown in baskets close to the ground rather than on trellises, allowing much-needed moisture from the island's minimal rainfalls to be retained effectively.At each of the wineries, enjoy a cellar tour with your guide to see how the winemaking process unfolds, from harvesting the grapes to bottling and maturing the wine. Take a walk around one of the volcanic vineyards to see the grapes growing in the unforgiving island conditions and, of course, sample glasses of Santorini wine galore - up to 12 glasses in total!Try popular varietals such as assyrtiko, nykteri and the rich vinsanto, and enjoy a platter of local delicacies including cheese, salami, bread and olives to complement and balance out the flavors of the wine. After four hours exploring three of the most interesting wineries in Santorini, your guide will drop you off at your hotel where your wine tour finishes.
