Santorini’s vineyards were shaped the same way the island’s awe-inspiring topography was – by a giant volcanic eruption about 3,600 years ago. The eruption blanketed the island with light pumice gravel, sand, and black lava stone – which eventually helped the grapes become resistant to the phylloxera epidemic that wiped out most of Europe’s vineyards in the late 19th century. As a result, most of the vineyards covering this stunning island are of their original rootstock and more than 100 years old.
Highlights for this tour include a tasting at one of the most internationally recognized wineries for a premium tasting, a wine-paired Greek lunch, and visits to the picturesque village of Oia and the capital city of Fira, and tickets to take the cable car from Fira to the port.
