The Wine Tasting Itinerary

Taste the best Greek wines onboard ARKTOS and experience a rich symphony of flavors, culinary delights, and Greek culture. This is an absolute must for all wine lovers. You will discover that this wine-tasting itinerary is a very special way to experience more of Greece!

Tour stunning island vineyards and taste indigenous Greek wine. Recent generations have revived these Cycladic vineyards, breathing new life into ancient traditional grapes growing on the volcanic soils.

In addition, the goblet-shaped bush vines are a rare and beautiful attraction. The grapes grow low to the ground in a circular shape. A nest of leaves and vines protects them. This has been the practice for millennia to protect delicate grapes from the wind and elements.

Day One: Aegina and Agistri

On the first day, take in the view of Aegina. This working island, close to Athens, is uncrowded and authentic. The next stop on the first day is Agistri, a small heaven on earth in the Saronic Gulf. With its abundance of plants and trees, sandy beaches, and crystal clear waters, you may not want to leave.

Day Two: Milos

Day two takes you to Milos. The island boasts an uncommon topography and an abundance of valuable minerals. The sea has sculpted the coastline into countless indentations and inlets, mostly covered by fine white sand. Visit Konstantakis Cave Winery.

Milos also has many lovely beaches, quaint towns, and historical sites.

Day Three: Santorini

Santorini is a small group of volcanic islands and the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in the world. What remains today is a submerged volcano and caldera. What’s more, the vineyards of Santorini produce intriguing wines reflective of their unique volcanic soil. The wineries in Santorini include:

  • Venetsanos Winery
  • Gaia Winery
  • Hatzidakis Winery
  • Karamolegkos Winery
  • Santo Wines Winery

While visiting Santorini, be sure to take a walk along the rim of the volcano’s caldera. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Days Four and Five: Paros and Antiparos

While on Paros, visit the Moraitis Winery. The Moraitis family-owned winery has been operating for over a century, boasting 40 acres of organic vineyards. In the afternoon, hop over to Antiparos, a small island next to Paros. It’s a wonderful place to relax, swim, and walk on the beach.
