Wine and Gastronomy
The archaeological statements show that viticulture was already present on the island in the 17th century B.C. Today, more than 50 white and red varieties of grapes can be found on the island.Taste the unique Santorini wines, based on the indigenous grape variety, Assyrtiko, with auxiliary cultivations of two other Aegean varietals, Athiri and Aidani. The viticultural pride of the island is the sweet and strong Vinsanto (Italian:"holy wine"), a dessert wine made from the best sun-dried Assyrtiko, Athiri, and Aidani grapes and undergoing long barrel aging (up to twenty or twenty-five years for the top cuvées).
A highlight in your Santorini visit could be a Wine tasting Tour ideal for nature or wine lovers, (or both!), unique scenery or exquisite taste seekers, simple friends or most demanding wine afficionados.
