First we will visit the Koutsogianopoulos Wine Museum The wine museum is located in a natural cave eight meters below ground. It is the only one of its kind in Greece and it took the Koutsoyannopoulos family, fourth-generation wine makers, 21 years to build it. The visitors of the museum have the opportunity to learn about the history of wine and the life of vine-growers in Santorini since the 1660s through an automatic audio guide, available in 14 languages or a guidebook, available in 22 languages. At the end of the tour, wines produced in Koutsoyannopoulos winery are available for tasting in the winery’s tasting room. Then you will visit the Argyros Estate Argyros Estate was founded in 1903 by Georgios Argyros and is located in a vineyard extension of 20 acres, in Episkopi Gonia, in Thira. Georgios Argyros followed the traditional vinification way of Santorini, in order to produce wines destinated for local market distribution. In 1950, the winery was undertaken by Matthaios Argyros who continued the tradition of his father and increased the cultivated area up to 60 acres. The greatest breakthrough was done by Yiannis Argyros to whom passed the management of the winery in 1974. Yiannis Argyros increased the arable land up to 260 acres, by revitalizing the winery and worked really hard to assure the growth of high quality raw material. The vines are self-rooted, trained in the traditional “kouloura” (basket shape) and are located at an altitude of 35-150 meters, with eastern-southeastern orientation. Afterwards we will visit the Venetsanos Winnery Venetsanos winery is located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the magnificent caldera of Santorini. The Venetsanos family has a very long tradition in producing wine. Originally was produced for the island and subsequently it was exported extensively, and particularly to countries such as Russia. It was built in 1947 by Venetsanos family and became the first industrial winery on the island. Its most distinguished feature is the structural design, which essentially used gravity, facilitating energy efficiency, at a time when access to electricity and other energy sources was very limited. The winery was built in an unconventional manner constructed from above and moving downwards.

a very nice excursion that shows the island and tells a lot about the wine grown here. It was entertaining and we had a lot of fun. But be careful - the provider does not pick you up from the ship. You definitely have to take the cable car to get there. So plan some time for it

The tour was very interesting. It is also convenient as they will pick you up nearby your hotel and drop you off there as well. We managed to try Santorini wines and learn about the production. The view at the last winery was the best. Highly recommended.

Chrisa was our tour guide and she made us all feel at ease, also gave us formation along the way, was happy to answer any questions and made sure we all had blankets while we watched the sun set, so thank you chrisa!!

Very nice way to get familiar with the island, enjoy some wine and light appetizers and make some new friends!

our tour was wonderful, roussos family winery was the best experience.
