Santo Wines – Santorini, Greece

There is nothing like a nice glass of wine on a terrace, on a summer night, people watching. You know what’s even better though? Several glasses of wine, on a summer night, sunset watching in Santorini.

On a late afternoon we headed to Santo Wines in the middle part of the island, just a little south of Fira for a winery tour.

The tour was very interesting and educative. We learned about the history of the island, the soil and the cultural meaning associated with wine making in Santorini.

After an hour tour, we headed to the panoramic terrace for the real treat! We were served a tray of wine glasses to enjoy with nibbles and the view.

As we say in French ‘Apero!

Our only job for the rest of the day was to enjoy the wine and take as many pictures as we possibly could of the caldera and the sunset.

The wine made me a little ‘creative’ which made for some interesting photographs of wine glasses, sunset, wine glasses and sunset, sunset through wine glasses. You get the picture! πŸ˜‰

We left Santo Wines a little tipsy and a little more in love with Santorini. Absolutely worth visiting!
