My fiance and I stayed in Oia in September and Tony, the proprietor at the Sea Capt's House, highly recommended we go on a wine tasting with Phenix. We set up the excursion and are so glad we did! Phenix is a wealth of knowledge about the island and about wine. We had an absolute wonderful time and really enjoyed the wines. She introduced us to the Mavrotragino and it is an outstanding wine. I haven't been able to find it here in the states, but I hope someday we can because it is something to experience. She also shared with us the tradition of Vinsanto being opened for a daughter's wedding, so we bought a couple of bottles for future occasions. :)
I highly recommend doing this early in your vacation because Phenix provides some excellent recommendations of things to do during your visit. And you also may decide to visit some of the wineries again. Phenix talked about pairing her culinary skills with her love of wine and I hope one day she is able to do that for all to share.
