Santorini Wine Trails
The elemental drama of Santorini’s volcanic landscape draws more than 2 million visitors every year. For over 3,500 years, this mineral-rich terroir has also produced outstanding wines. There are around 50 indigenous grapes (notably bone-dry assyrtiko and amber, caramel vin santo). The vines are coiled around the grapes like baskets to protect them from the fierce sunlight and meltemi winds. Santorini Wine Trails offers small-group personalized wine tours, run by an enthusiastic and erudite enologist, Iliana Sidiropoulou. Ask her to take you to Domaine Sigalas, where award-winning vintages are paired with superb snacks; Gaia, in an old tomato-canning factory on Monolithos beach; and Venetsanos winery, with a rooftop wine bar that seems to float above the port of Athinios.
