    What to Expect
    After a hotel pickup, chat with your guide about the island’s cuisine and travel to your first stop. Hear about the wine and the island’s characteristic volcanic soil — known as aspa — that helps produce wine with abundant mineral flavors and light notes.

    Stop at a volcanic winery to sample your first glasses of wine, and then continue to the second winery of the day to learn about the different varietals produced on the island: assyrtiko, nykteri and vinsanto.

    From there, it’s on to your cooking class. Under the watchful eye of your chef, help prepare a feast of local dishes. What you cook is decided on the day, but you can expect classics such as a tomato-flavored fritters, traditional Greek salad, and pork fillet caramelized with the sweet vinsanto wine.

    When your food is ready, sit down to eat. Help yourself to wine to complement your creations, and finish with a glass of vinsanto to end your meal in the local way. With your take-home recipes in hand, you’ll then return to your vehicle and finish with a hotel drop-off.

    My husband and I booked this as part of our honeymoon and we had such an amazing time. We were picked up in a nice A/C van and our guide was so knowledgable not only about the wines but also about Santorini and the history of the island. A must do!

    Please make sure you have transportation to this place and back, that was our main problem. However, once we got there we did wine tasting, which was very nice and had a few small plates. I wasn't overly impressed with the wine tastings, but I'm more a red wine person than

    My husband and I chose to do this activity on our honeymoon and couldn’t have asked for a better guide in Angelo and a better experience. The length of the activity and amount of wine and food for your money is a great value. If you’re on the fence for this activity just go
