Wine tasting dating dating and money issues
#santorini #greece A post shared by Santorini Dave (@santorinidave) on Boutari Winery – Megalochori -A pioneer in wine making, this is Greece’s most historical wine company dating back to 1879.-In the early 80’s, Boutari brought its experience and innovative wine making strategies to Santorini and as such, continue to provide educational seminars. Various tours available ranging from 5-8 wines with and without food pairing and range from €15 for 45 minutes to €85 for 90 minutes. Bus stop in Megalochori, winery a short walk from there.A great small-group tour that visits three traditional wineries and vineyards scattered around Santorini. Will usually visit Santo Winery or Venetsanos (both with great caldera views) or Gavalas (my favorite) and 2 others. This is a private wine tour for serious wine lovers.Definitely worth it for the intimacy and attention to detail, but maybe not for everyone.– 3 options for wine tasting available: 3,5 or 7 bottles. – Not all buses are direct to Megalochori, but you can change buses in Fira if yours doesn’t make a stop here.– Small selection of wine for purchase at reception.€6/person for tour alone or €15/person for tour and wine tasting. A la carte menu with a variety of cheeses and some traditional food items like dolmathes available.
