Santorini Farm Tour: Food & Wine, Santorini

5.0 (10 reviews)
Discover Santorini's singular cuisine, notable for its waterless farming, seeing wineries and farm cooking demonstrations

Overview

Santorini is highly regarded for many reasons, but today, you will explore with this half-day guided foodie tour, one of those that is perhaps less talked-about:  its cuisine. Thanks to the arid island's waterless (anhydrous) farming, the food has a unique and flavorful taste and today is your chance to discover much more about its special agriculture, produce and dishes.

You will take an adventurous journey into Santorini's gastronomic delights. Led with your taste buds, you will visit a historic village, a winery, and an organic farm. Along the way, you will see a side to the island far away from the well-beaten tourist trails, learning about the island's ancient history of winemaking and sampling traditional culinary delights.

You'll explore Megalochori village, walking along distinctive stone pathways called kadounia. Away from the visiting masses, here you will have a window into a typical islander's life. You will get to experience a family-run winery, where the wine production follows centuries-old traditions, tasting several indigenous varieties and enjoying some local foodie delicacies.

You'll witness a cooking demonstration with fresh, hand-picked ingredients at an organic farm. In a series of traditional agricultural caves, you'll find cherry tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, prickly pears, zucchinis, watermelon, and many other fruits and vegetables, which provide the palette for today's demonstration. Watch and learn how to prepare traditional seasonal dishes, and enjoy a scrumptious meal you can be sure has been created with local products.

In case of any dietary intolerances or allergies, please advise your travel specialist accordingly.

We had a local tour guide that was involved in all of the processes we saw. The wine tour was great and she personally knew a lot about each wine. The tomato farm was great with 5 different ways to enjoy the fruit. Read more

The tour guide and the cook, who was a young man helping his father on the farm, were really good. We thoroughly enjoyed helping them cook a meal. Read more

This was one of our trip highlights. The wine tasting was tasty and informative. That alone would have been incredible, but that was followed by the waterless farming tour and cooking exercise which was even better. A must do tour for any visitors to Naxos. Read more

This was among our top two favorite tours! Our bus driver Konstantinos was THE BEST! He was funny, engaging, and his fun banter with our tour guide Ana made it even more memorable. We laughed so much!! Great memories!! We learned so much about grapes, wine, and wineries! And we got to prepare our delicious meal together with our tour guide! Read more

Wonderful experience. Our driver and tour guide were both very friendly and knowledgeable. We tasted great wines, learned about the history of Santorini (with regards to the agriculture), and got to cook traditional food from the island. The experience ended with a final glass of wine and an amazing view of the sunset. Read more

the trip mentioned lunch, but for Americans it was very late lunch. I would suggest saying it was dinner, since we ate closer to 6pm.

Fava beans, tomato fritters and greek salad was outstanding. For dessert we had greek yogurt with the farm made sweetened marinated cherry tomatoes!
