The tour starts at 10:30 or at 16:00 and our first stop takes us to The Volcan Beer Terace where we’ll be met by the naïve enthusiasts that started this brewery in hard times, yet managed to turn their passion and mighty dynamic into an international beacon for premium beer. Now, how about a refreshing beer-tasting? After our tour you will be offered a tasting of 3 locally produced beers that are appraised worldwide for their superior quality and an one of a kind vinsanto aperitif!Next, we visit the Canava Santorini Distillery. Prepare yourselves for a trip through time & a lot of amazing history. Canava Santorini was established in 1974 by Evagellos Lygnos and today his son, Loukas, still produces the same fine spirits with the same principles, recipes, and raw materials, that his father taught him. On our tour through their jaw-dropping museum, “Santorini, The Days Gone By.”, you will find yourself immersed in the everyday life of an era bygone. Walk through the local village from years ago, sit in Giagia’s parlor, stroll through the main square, and even shop from a street-market of the past! We guarantee that you will be blown away by the hours of work, the details, knowledge and passion that was put into this effort giving you a true glimpse into history. After the tour, we sit at a traditional cafene where you’ll be offered tastings of local Ouzo, Tsipouro & liqueurs made only in Santorini! We make our final stop at the Venetsanos Winery, the first industrial winery on the island built in 1947 by the Venetsanos family. Its most distinguished feature is the structural design, which essentially used gravity, facilitating energy efficiency, at a time when access to electricity and other energy sources was very limited. The winery was built in an unconventional manner constructed from above and moving downwards. The exceptional architectural structure is combined with the history of one of the most important wine producers in the Aegean. The winery is located in the most breathtaking location offering an incredible view over the caldera and the volcanic islets. So let’s take a tour of the winery and then sit outside on the terrace, where you will enjoy a wine tasting experience of 5 local wines accompanied by a platter of local delicacies while gazing at the view of the sun reigning over the caldera with its bright amber glow!
