This is an excellent way to spend part of your time in Santorini. Having heard about Santorini wines before our trip, we booked this hoping to learn a little more. We learned a lot and had a great time in the process!
Phenix has an amazing knowledge of wine and the history of winemaking on the island. I was fascinated to learn about Vinsanto and its place in the history of Greece and the Greek church. We visited three wineries during the tour, and what I liked is that it is SO different from the touristy wine tasting tours that you get in Napa/Sonoma. This is private, personal, and unique.
My favorite part was visiting Estate Argyros where the "tasting room" is actually the chemist lab where they do various tests on the wine. In talking with Panayota at Argyros, she told us where we could find their wine back here in California (High Times in Costa Mesa). We went shortly after we returned and bought their Assyrtiko and Vinsanto Mezzo. FYI: High Times also has some wines from Sigalas which is also on the tour.
Definitely take an afternoon and do this tour with Phenix. You'll learn a lot, enjoy some great wine and have some good stories to tell when you get home.
