There are more than a dozen wineries in Santorini that produce award-winning reds, whites, roses and sweet wines. Stop by a local winery to learn about the unique wine production on this island and figure out which variety suits your taste. Here are three our Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend:
1. Canava Roussos. Established in 1836 by a Mykonian family, Canava Roussos sits in the quiet village of Mesa Gonia and is the oldest winery on the island. It boasts a beautiful garden for wine tasting and a small museum that displays fantastic photos of wine production throughout the decades.
2. Hatzidakis Winery. Established in 1997, this family-owned winery in the village of Pyrgos produces a classic selection of award-winning Santorini wines. Try them in the cellar tasting room.
3. Santo Wines. At this beautiful winery in Oia, take a tour and learn about winemaking or just figure out what your favorite Greek wine is. If nothing else, you’ll have a top view of the caldera.
