We did the wine tour and cooking class while visiting Santorini on our honeymoon and can't say enough good things about this tour. Phenix is amazing, so friendly and quite knowledgeable on wine as well as local Santorini customs. Her selection of wineries to take us to were spot on. Such a good variety with amazing views. The tasting area for Gaia, which is literally on the beach, was well worth the price alone. I loved the wines from Estate Argyos as well. Thanks to Phenix and her suggestion, we now have a couple special bottles from each winery which we will save for our 1st and 5th anniversaries respectively.
The cooking class was the perfect complement to the wine tour. We learned how to make tomato fritters, Greek salad and then a fish with fava bean purée, all while still drinking more local wines. Our chef was great in that he patiently explained how to fry the perfect fritter, cook the fish, etc. and gave us tips on how to make the food at home--including providing recipes. We finished off with having a delicious dinner on the beach near Kamari Beach. Such a perfect day and way to enjoy Santorini. A must for couples, families and lovers of wine and good food!
