Make your next stop one of the local wineries Santorini has been famous for since ancient times. Discover how the long tradition of wine-making and the special volcanic quality of the soil produce a fine, unique flavor. Take in the beauty of the surrounding vineyards while you enjoy wine-tasting and shop for the perfect bottle to enjoy later. Wrap up with a trip to one or more of Santorini’s beautiful beaches.
