  • Nice view on the terrace, but very disappointing wine tasting experience... and SO expensive! Better and more affordable options are available, like Santos Winery.  more »
  • Super aperitif not far from Pyrgos, very nice aperitif well served, well presented. The view of the sunset in the background with an overview of the island with Thira and Oia in the distance and the volcanic island looks like an open-air postcard ! Very good wine one of the best drunk on the island staff kind and very professional ready to explain whatever is ordered cutting of charcuterie and cheeses very rich and well assorted price in the average ! Recommended for wine lovers also organize tasting tours with visit to the cellar. Ps : Book because otherwise there is a risk of not finding a place.

  • One of the most scenic and award winning wineries on the island. Plan to do your tasting with a paring on the patio it’s a perfect place to appreciate the view of the caldera, feel the breeze and the sun and let your senses appreciate the wine. This facility has some unique underground architecture where they process the grapes to wine, certainly worthwhile to take the guided tour to see it.
  • The place has a superb view, the wine tasting is nice and the lunch that comes with it as well, the guide we had (Olga) was excellent and we bought the amazing desert wine. Only thing that could be improved: the wine tour is not included in the tasting and needs to be ordered and paid extra. It's not much but it could the make the experience way better to start with the toue so when we taste the wine, we understand where it comes from...
