  • We have been in this cellar for wine tasting, typical of the area. The staff are very welcoming and followed us all the way describing in detail the various wines that we tasted. The view from the winery across the caldera is truly exceptional!

  • We really enjoyed the spectacular views of the caldera here as well as the wine. Only 7€ for tasting. If you order a glass of wine, instead of tasting, you get a small plate of cheese and crackers. We preferred this winery over Santo Winery because it was less crowded and touristy. Also the wine pourers were more attentive here.
  • Go there for the view, not for the wine! The tour of the winery is very short (5-10min). Our guide was rushing the group to get it done quickly. It's sad because the winery itself is very interesting. It was built in the 1950s with the idea to leverage gravity to avoid any unnecessary power consumption. All the cuves come next to each other along the hill to leverage the gravity. The view is wonderful and it's a great place to see the sunset. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable but we didn't like the wine. We recommend Sigalas, on the road to Oia, if you want better wine and a more authentic experience. This one is designed for tourists.
  • Great experience for a fair price! For 7 euro you get winetasting of white, rose, red and the vinsanto wine. Specially the vinsanto wine is a plesure! We took some fava aperetizer, which made a great combination with the wines. Also, this winery doesnt give you the impression that its a mega-producing hi-tech company; Friendly and relaxed staff with knowledge about wine.
  • I really enjoyed our short visit here. Staff is great. I enjoyed the wines they presented. Purchased one of there dessert wines
  • Breathtaking views of the Mediterranean, delicious wine and wonderful Greek olives- does it get any better!
