Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos, Fira

4.3
#2 of 65 in Museums in Cyclades
Located underground in a natural cave, Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos teaches visitors about Greek wine and wine-making. At 8 m (26 ft) below the ground, the museum spans 300 m (984 ft) of the cave. Follow the labyrinth to learn about the history of wine and the daily life of winemakers in Santorini over the last several centuries. Listen along on an audio guide for details of each step of the wine-making process, from pruning and ploughing the vineyards to harvesting, stomping, and weighing the grapes. Finish your visit with a taste of four of the wines produced by the vineyard, and take home a bottle of your favorite wine as a souvenir. Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Fira Edition.

    This is a one of a kind museum to be sure. An impressive layout of the family's history and history of wine making on the island. It's a beautiful spacious facility and has lovely tasting rooms. There...  more »

    For wine lovers, a must-have! Great what is celebrated around the wine. Who has time should allow it to look past here.

    Very well done Museum. Excellent audioguide. Eventually you can taste 4 wines, table 2 and two desserts. The only flaw that might give a few snacks in addition, because the wines are light. Well worth a visit.

    A very beautiful island views and yours can make 5 kinds of wine tasting also there are parking lot on the roof. But there is not much to be seen in the museum.

    I know a lot of people who visited Santorini but very few who went to the winery. It is pretty obvious that everyone comes for the beach but there is more than that in that beautiful island. The wine museum is very interactive and shows how they grow local grapes in their unique way on the volcano soil. There is also a shop/bar where you can buy wines or taste them. Greek wines and especially from Santorini are not world famous but they do have something special in them. I definitely recommend this place.

Where to stay in Fira

The most unique way to experience Fira is to stay in one of its famous cave hotels or cliffside suites. The city in Santorini also has many spas and hotels to accommodate the massive waves of summer tourists on this island, and few are cheap. For more affordable options, venture further away from the cliffside. Or, if you're willing to spend a bit more on lodging, opt for a caldera view. There are a number of homes and villas for rent here as well, just be sure to check with your host about how exactly to get to your lodging, as many places are not accessible by road and require a journey by foot along stone steps.
