Domaine SigalasWhile most visitors to Santorini squeeze along the cliffs of Oia to watch the sunset, those in the know kick back on the vine-shaded terrace of the Sigalas winery with a bottle of crisp assyrtiko and a platter of Cycladic cheeses and cherry tomato chutney. Winery tours include the opportunity to try 10 of Sigalas’s superb wines alongside an array of excellent mezes. For a special treat, book ahead for the six-course tasting menu paired with Sigalas’s finest vintages. Delicate but intensely flavored dishes—cucumber gazpacho, white eggplant layered with goat cheese and pine nuts, sea bass carpaccio with beet jus and citrus mousse—taste even better as dusk bathes the plain of Baxedes in a golden glow.
