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.

Guided by a local wine expert, today you will taste Santorini's delicious wines at one of the islands most internationally recognized wineries. After a tour and tasting here you will head to our favorite restaurant in the picturesque village of Oia for a wine-paired lunch of local specialties. Following lunch you will have some free time to explore Oia and Fira before heading back to the ship.
