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. Venetsanos Winery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Megalochori Edition.

  • Beautiful winery with gorgeous scenery. They have a limited wine selection but if you order the 6 course tasting, you’ll try them all and have each explained to you by a sommelier. I found them all enjoyable, and usually I prefer dry reds. We also tried the wrapped vine leaves and tomato fritters. Definitely recommend both.
  • Nice winery overlooking the caldera. The cheese plate was good. A bit annoying to get to by the bus. The bus stop is in across from the church the street.
  • Friendly environment very good collection of local wine and every our there is a ture about their history.
  • Major disappointment, my lord, what a sad experience. No one accompanied us on the tour, they just had us wander around and there are few if any signs explaining what you’re you are looking at. This place has me ending my sentences with prepositions... we got our table an hour early because the tour was such a massive flop. The food came, basic as hell and some things were straight up gross. Overpriced. Wine was bleh. So bleh. You can seriously go anywhere else with a caldera view, spend as much money, and have a far better experience.
  • Walked in for wine tasting to catch the sunset, cost us 12€ for 5 wine tasting. We got to try 2 whites, 2 reds and 1 dessert wine, their Vinsanto. While we couldn't exactly see the sun due to the time of the year, the view Of sunset on Santorini was still breathtaking. The staff even offered blankets as it was windy.
