Oceania Cruises is proud to partner with Food & Wine Trails, America’s foremost culinary travel company, in the offering of this tour. Food and Wine Trails tours are always kept intimate and visit sites not typically offered by mainstream travel suppliers. Their tours are always led by a knowledgeable, English-speaking sommelier, wine or food expert, cooking instructor or chef, who enjoys introducing visitors to some of the best and most authentic food and wine of their region.

The stunningly gorgeous Island of Santorini has long been known as a romantic destination spot. But how’s the wine? With more than a 5,000 year history of growing grapes, it really shouldn’t come as a shock that the locals know what they’re doing and are producing world-acclaimed, delicious wines. On this tour you have two goals – to learn more about Santorini wines and take in some of the gorgeous views of one of the most photographed locations in the world.

Your first stop is the village of Oia on the Caldera rim, famous for its spectacular views. Your guide will take you on a walking tour of the village down cobblestone streets by those oh so famous blue shuttered, white-washed homes. You’ll have time to sit in a café or visit one or more of the shops before heading to the other side of the island.

Leaving Oia, you’ll enjoy a scenic drive to Megalochori Village and Boutari Winery. Boutari’s founder, Yiannis, is a Greek winemaker whose influence on Greece’s wine industry has been compared by Wine Spectator as comparable to the late Robert Mondavi’s influence on the Napa Valley. After a guided tour of the winery, you’ll sample a selection of their award-winning wines and enjoy a wonderful buffet luncheon.

Continuing around the island, you arrive back in the town of Fira. Bidding your guide good-bye, you’ll be free to spend the rest of your time on the island strolling along the winding lanes or relaxing over an espresso while gazing at the truly amazing views, it’s up to you. You’ll have one last chance to take in the famous picture-perfect views during a short cable car ride, or for the more adventurous – a donkey ride, down to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes extensive walking, at times over uneven surfaces. The tour is not recommended for wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Light-weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. On occasion, due to last-minute operational issues at the wine estate, an alternate winery estate of similar quality and ranking may be substituted. Given it is a set meal that is served on this excursion, guests with any dietary restrictions should advise the Destination Services Desk once on board the ship.
