Poised on top of a cliff overlooking the rocky Aegean coastline, Venetsanos Winery remains a distinguished family-run operation in business since 1947. Inside the historic winery built into the cliffs to avoid disrupting the natural landscape you can take a guided tour of the production process. While surveying the romantic panorama surrounding the winery, you can sample dessert whites and rich tannic reds accompanied with well-paired meats and cheeses. Round off your visit with a trip to the gift shop, where you can purchase a bottle of your favorite wine.

  • We had a good time here. My wife and I went on our own without a tour in October. You have the option of doing the wine tasting or getting a s small tour inside their wine museum. We got the tour but it was only 5 mins and I really wouldn't recommend it. The wine tasting was really good. The prices are fair and you get to try 5 glasses. However at the end when we went to buy a bottle we noticed the prices are really expensive. We still bought one and have not regretted it.
  • Locals recommended the winery, so we visited, and it was one of the best during our Santorini trip! Easy and quick access by public bus (1.8 euro) from Thira. We asked bus stuff to let us know when to get out. Great sunset ocean view. The view is great during noon too. 10 euro for 5 wine tastings (2 whites, 1 rose, 2 reds. 1 dessert wine). Snacks (cheeses sticks, olives, etc) are about 10 to 25 euro. Another food plate was offered free when we ordered one bottle. Relaxing, great wine, good wine snacks, friendly stuff and nice view. There are winery tours but I would pick one winery and spend a precious time there. I would highly recommend this winery :)
  • Incredible view, amazing wine, and staff that sincerely CARE about you having a lovely time. Maria who serves you wine and explains the history of the vineyard and the wines is a joy. We had the perfect few hours here. Highly recommend MUCH more than the overly visited more "popular" wineries.
  • My husband and I visited Venetsanos Winery as part of an organized wine tour that took us to three different wineries. We were totally blown away by the winery itself! It has a very interesting history and a fascinating design from an architectural and engineering perspective that uses its position on the cliffside, as well as gravity to its advantage. It also has the most incredible views of the caldera! Perfect for sitting outside and enjoying delicious wines! Highly recommend!
  • We found this winery while walking back to our apartment from Santos Wines. Loved this winery way more than Santos. Much better wines at a very reasonable price. Spectacular view while having our tastings. It's only at €10 for 5 different wines with a personalised staff giving explanations. We ended up ordering a bottle of the Nykteri to enjoy after the tasting. Try the smoked eel platter it's went really well with the bottle.
