3. From Fira: Santorini Wine Tasting & Wineries Private Tour
In this tour our main goal is for all the guests to experience the uniqueness of our most famous local product – Wine!!!
We will begin our tour visiting Argyros Estate, a winery with great history as it was established officially in 1903 although the Argyros family has been involved in wine production for decades before that. It is the largest private owner of vineyards in Santorini and the current landholdings exceed 120 ha, a vast, four-generations-long investment. Estate Argyros works almost exclusively with old vines because only these vineyards can provide the depth, the definition and the concentration needed to produce the desired style of wine.
Our next stop is Artemis Karamolegos Winery. Based upon the solid foundations of granddad Artemis’s winemaking tradition since 1952, the winery made a dynamic entry in contemporary winemaking in 2004, when grandson Artemis Karamolegos invested in the production facility and the privately owned vineyards, producing wine of protected designation of origin (PDO) for the first time. Almost 15 years later, the wines keep earning prizes at international and domestic competitions while our export activities continue to grow on a yearly basis: we are currently the third largest winery of Santorini in terms of production volume.
In between the winery visits it is always nice to have a look at the amazing landscapes of Santorini… The next stop will be a small surprise in one of the most famous spots on the island..
At the end of our tour, we will visit Santo Wines Winery. This winery located at the top of the cliffside and combines the amazing views with very interestingly flavored wines. The Union of Santorini Cooperatives, Santo Wines was founded in 1947. Today, it consists of the largest organization of the island representing all the cultivators and counting 1.200 active members. Santo Wines produces highest quality Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Santorini wines and products as well as promoting sustainable agriculture development.
After your visiting the third winery you will be transferred back to your accommodation.
