Visiting wineries is one of the best things you can do in Santorini because you get to learn about the process and taste a bunch of different wines. These are some of the most popular and famous wineries in Santorini, which you'll likely need to book ahead of time because they get very full during the summer because of the amount of tourists on the island. If you have any other suggestions, please add them in the thread below! These are just a few that I found online.

Domaine Sigalas
Santo Wines
Boutari
Gaia
Gavalas

Did you know that nowadays there are 18 wineries on Santorini and one in Thirassia? They all produce fantastic wines! Do not miss the famous Assyrtiko and Vinsanto, the famous sweet wine from sun-dried grapes!

Assyrtiko is one of the best, I totally agree! I'm so happy that I'm starting to see it in more and more foreign liquor stores
 

The truth about costs in Santorini

Did you know that Santorini has an industrial tomato museum?

Santorini had a huge production of tomatoes, which was so big that they even have an industrial tomato museum that is open to the public. Santorini no longer exports as much tomato paste as it used to, I'm assuming because it became one of the most popular tourist hot spots in the entire world. The museum is located in the former D. Nomikos Tomato Factory, and I really suggest that you check it out!! Safe travels :)

The best place to go scuba diving in Santorini

Santorini is one of the best places to go scuba diving because the island was created from a volcano many years ago which makes the sea life very different from other areas of Greece. There are very unique Coral reef Sandrock formations that have come from the volcano, and as always, the sea is teeming with wildlife. I highly recommend visiting Caldera Lagoon and arranging that you go scuba diving there. There are a few local schools that you should call ahead of time to schedule your slot. Best of luck!

The best foods to try while in Santorini

Santorini is a great place for foodies and those seeking to have the best gastronomic and culinary experiences in Greece. Santorini has very unique dishes that you won't find in other areas of Greece and the Cyclades. Some of my favorites are fava, domatokeftedes, kopania, and chloritiri cheese. You may not find all of these at every single restaurant, but it's definitely worth seeking them out while you're here.

Where to explore the history of Santorini

Santorini has such a deep and rich history that definitely should be explored on your next trip to the island. The Ancient Byzantine Castle is one of the best places to start your exploration of the history of the island. The Byzantine Empire played one of the most influential roles in the culture in history of ancient Greece. The empire was led by Christian rulers, who spread the Greek orthodox religion throughout the country. You can also visit the Akrotiri Archaeological Site which shows ruins from the bronze age, dating back to 1600 BC. Safe travels!
