Departure Time

9:30 AM
After a hotel pickup, chat with your guide about the island’s cuisine and travel to your first stop. Hear about the wine and the island’s characteristic volcanic soil — known as aspa — that helps produce wine with abundant mineral flavors and light notes.

Stop at a volcanic winery to sample your first glasses of wine, and then continue to the second winery of the day to learn about the different varietals produced on the island: assyrtiko, nykteri and vinsanto.

From there, it’s on to your cooking class. Under the watchful eye of your chef, help prepare a feast of local dishes. What you cook is decided on the day, but you can expect classics such as a tomato-flavored fritters, traditional Greek salad, and pork fillet caramelized with the sweet vinsanto wine.

When your food is ready, sit down to eat. Help yourself to wine to complement your creations, and finish with a glass of vinsanto to end your meal in the local way. With your take-home recipes in hand, you’ll then return to your vehicle and finish with a hotel drop-off.

Well Done!

Our family of 8 people really enjoyed this experience. The host was knowledgeable and engaging throughout the day - where we visited a grape vineyard and three different wineries. The group cooking class was hosted by a very engaging chef who brought everyone into the experience. We went over time by 1 hour+, though our host did not seem to mind. Great experience!

My Big Fat Greek Wine and Food Tour
Jeffrey_L
, Jun 2021
On this tour, it occurred to me that I had never actually learnt about the intimate details behind the process of making wine- I only had vague ideas. From the jump, our guide Angelo was funny, informative and easygoing. We first looked at the unique Grecian way of growing grapes and how the climate impacts them, specifically in regards to flavor. Then the real fun began- the first tasting. Angelo taught us the proper ways to look at, smell and taste wine and also how to pair it with food, answering any questions we had about wine-meal combos. It was a thorough experience from thereon, and at the risk of sounding like a wine snob, my group and I left with a better appreciation for the art and culture behind the grape (one of us was even a level 1 sommelier!). Some of the highlights included the friendly local winemakers, the small doses of local history and the superb Greek Rosés. The rest of the day played out perfectly, from the second winery nestled into a cliff with stunning views of the caldera, to the exciting cooking class finale. We arrived at Anhydrous winery and restaurant at the end of our tour and were greeted by a lovely group of wine enthusiasts and chefs. They had everything prepared for us and, to our relief, the cooking class was rather more of a paint-by-numbers experience than a culinary test (dicing onions is surprisingly difficult!), punctuated by their own lovely wines. I won't spoil the menu, but you will certainly leave with a full belly, and even fuller heart. What I enjoyed most about this tour was that it captured the Greek sense of community. The reason I keep returning to Greece is because there are few places one feels more welcome and cherished so instantaneously. Sure, the incredible food, wine and scenery are top reasons as well, but it is the people there that truly shine. It was the dry wit and charming snark of our guide Angelo that disarmed us at the beginning of the day and created a safe space to be snobby about what we drank. Then it was the immediate hospitality of the local winery staff that made each stop on the trip a memorable one. And, lastly, it was the love that our teacher-chef had for food and for people that made our first collective foray into Greek cuisine so easy and fun. By far the best food/drink experience I have had in Greece. Do not hesitate to book.

This was an incredible tour, a highlight of our honeymoon and hands down the best wine tour we have ever been on in the US and Europe. Cooking class was very fun, and the food was delicious and plentiful. We cannot say enough good things about this tour.

We have never learned so much on a wine tour while having an amazing time. Aggelos was our tour guide & he was very knowledgeable & made our group bond & have a great time together. We didn't know anyone else but after a few glasses of wine & plenty of laughs, we felt like we have all known each other for years. This tour is a great way to see the wineries of Santorini & learn about Greek food also. The views are spectacular & the wine is some of the best!

Our driver Anton turned out to be a sommelier and was incredibly informative and passionate. We learned so much about wine and how to appreciate it that made the tour experience far exceed expectations. The chef Talia was a cute young lady with a lot of energy. This tour was absolutely one of the best we have booked anywhere.
