After our walking trip to the town of Oia, our tour guide Arthur took us to Santo Winery for some Greek Wine tasting.

Located at the village of Pyrgos in Santorini, SantoWines sits at the edge of the Caldera. Hence, the awesome view!

I’m all for liquor consumption, and tasting the unique flavors of Santorini wine is more exciting because of the sulfur content in the soil due to the volcanic presence and the eruptions, giving their grape juice extra oomph.

SantoWines is a CO-OP winery where most bottlers and makers get their wines since 1992.

ToT trying some Grande Reserva Assyrtiko, a dry white wine that’s “Shiny and yellowish, makes a unique statement with its varietal aromatic character, which embraces white flowers and citrus fruits.”

SantoWines has been awarded such accolades as “Leading Wine Producer of Greece” in a German International wine portal, and three of their wines won awards in the  International Wine and Spirits Competition 2010 that took place in London, UK in June.  This Assyrtiko won a Silver Medal in the Best In Class category

A view like this is sure to merit some romantic attractions.

Here’s my espionage shot of two lovers canoodling while getting giddy on wine.

And so lucky was I to witness the nuptial photo shoot of this newly wed couple.

The main hall of the SantoWines Oenotourism Center can hold up to 120 people and is a famous place for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, and other memorable moments. So romantic!

The winery overlooks the Aegean Sea, and come sunset, the sky turns red and oh so romantic.

I wonder who ToT’s bro is SMS-ing while emoting in Santorini… nuninuninu…

ToT drinking every last drop of her glass and her sisters too!

ToT & Bro with the Celebrity Equinox in between us, taken by Arthur our tourguide, Who apparently is also a Videographer in the island. Multitasker!

Speaking of multitasker, he’s also a big ham and took this crazy shot on the cliff! Don’t fall!

My wacky family with one of our best family shots. This must be blown up life size. Yes, we are crazy like that.

When we left Santo Winery, I spotted this Diving Center on the way back to Fira… Did you say DIVING?!?!? I’m so going back! More of Santorini coming up next
