    Views, quality, value, experience!
    This was an amazing experience! Maria was a phenomenal hostess, very knowledgeable and fun! We tasted three amazing wines paired with “lunch” selections. We ate like kings, delighted with the selections of food, and had many new explorations of tastes. Overall we felt like value, experience, and quality all came together! If you have a chance definitely make this a destination.

    Lovely Winery
    We stumbled across this winery as we ATV'd across the island and it blew us away. Delicious wine and a food pairing that is the best I've had. Maria, our wine guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. If you're in the area, you should definitely go.

    Wonderful experience.
    My wife and I stopped by here for a few hours, and I'm very glad that I did. We were greeted after a long, and hot walk from our hotel and chose to be seated outside. We had four white wines as part of our tasting, and enjoyed every single one of them. Usually at a wine tasting there is a wine or two that is pretty much 'just there', but everyone of these wines had character and was tasty. The snack parings with our wines were fantastic. I highly recommend this fantastic vineyard!

    BEST WINERY IN GREECE
    Really where do i begin? From the moment we were welcomed till the end, the entire experience was unbelievable. This is definitely the best winery I've ever visited in Greece and especially in Santorini. The wines, the food pairings and in general the degustation were MAGNIFICENT. Huge thank you to Artemis, Maria and Elias who made sure that we had an amazing time and ensured that we create unforgettable memories. If you're looking for a winery to visit, this is definitely the place to come especially in Santorini. Honestly, i have no other words, just incredible. Thank you FOR everything. I'll definitely be back.

    Visited Vassaltis Vineyards!
    Visited Vassaltis Vineyards in July. The Vineyard overlooks the Aegean Sea. The wines are really delicious. The food pairings are the best I tasted. If you are in Santorini, make sure to stop by Vassaltis Vineyard and ask for Mapia as your wine guide.

    Fantastic cellar tour and wine!
    Great cellar tour with Maria - very knowledgable, passionate and fun! Tried numerous different wines, all were great! Stayed afterwards for a bottle and an appetiser. There was a hefty corkage fee (I believe it was around €20 per bottle). Views were great and it was a very chilled environment to spend a couple of hours having a drink. Maria was great in recommending a lovely appetiser to have with the Red Wine we chose. Would thoroughly recommend to all!

    A truly wonderful evening
    My husband and I visited for dinner last night and had the most fantastic evening! We took the degustation menu and wine flight and were delighted by every course. The presentation of the food was exquisite and every mouthful tasted amazing. Maria’s knowledge of the wines was superb and she was attentive without being intrusive. It was wonderful to meet the chef at the end too. I thoroughly recommend a visit to Vassaltis.

    Amazing and great service
    Amazing wine and device. Bought wine and placed it in suitcases. Unfortunately one of our luggage was lost. Thanks Aegean Airlines for that! I guess someone else is enjoying our wine! Glad we got at least 2 of this great wine in our other bag.

    One of a kind experience at Vassaltis Vineyards
    My experience at Vassaltis Vineyards was one of a kind and definitely not my last, the staff was extremely knowledgeable and welcoming, the bites alongside the wine were perfectly curated to match each wine I tried. There is incredible detail that went into the wine making and the food/bites. The environment and location were excellent as you have an amazing view of the ocean and vineyard. The visit was a one of a kind experience and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys food and wine and is in Santorini.

    Meet the winemaker experience
    Wow what can I say. What an amazing vineyard in a beautiful setting. We had the pleasure of meeting Yiannis the owner to understand more about winemaking in Santorini and the ethos behind Vassaltis. His knowledge and passion was so refreshing. After touring the facility we sat down to a five course tasting menu paired with wine. It was amazing, the portion size however are typically Greek so prepare yourself for a lot of food! Maria our hostess was attentive and also so knowledgeable about each of the wines. What an experience, I could not recommend this place enough!!

My partner and I booked a wine tasting here after reading the rave reviews online but were hugely disappointed and left feeling a bit scammed. Our wine tasting lasted around 30 minutes in total and we arrived to be seated inside, no tour was available and no information about the vineyard itself. We were served four tiny amounts of wine with a canapé. I understand this is a tasting but a dribble in each glass and a small cracker to accompany it is not okay for the price tag. No water was provided to cleanse your mouth between tastings so we were charged €4 for two glasses of water. The whole experience was over €80 and we were there half an hour. For the money we spent you can have a far better experience at other wineries in the area, don’t waste your money

We stopped in without a reservation with a party of 8 and even though they were booked, they were happy to rearrange things to accommodate us. Maria was very informative and attentive and the wine and food pairings were amazing. Great views and service, would absolutely recommend!

Our first night in Santorini we were treated to a bottle of Assyrtiko wine from the Vassaltis Vineyards. We were very impressed and decided to book a tasting and short tour of the winery. The staff were exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable and really open and welcoming. Our short tour of the beautifully designed modern winery facility and explanation of the unique viniculture of the island were pleasant and eye opening.

We followed the tour with a wine tasting and pairing of some delicious small bites. Every wine was distinctive and delicious and they were paired with food that was expertly prepared. We were mildly surprised by the skill and subtlety of the Chef's creations, not expecting such a high level of cuisine during a wine tasting.

We highly recommend this winery if you want a wonderful, balanced experience tasting some of Santorini's best local wines while absorbing the atmosphere in their well designed patio/restaurant.

A great experience! We tried the wine tasting with the food pairing. A nice environment to enjoy your wine. The food quality is also very good.

A special mention to Sasa. She was the best! She explained everything with details and that was very helpful should you do not know much of wines. 😊😊

Go here!!! So happy I stopped by this winery. I ordered the 5 wines & 5 bites. Excellent wine tasting. Varied, rounded, delicious wines. My personal favorite was their 100% assyrtiko 2019 vintage (I got a bottle after). The winery was not crowded but still has ocean and winery views (you don’t have to just go on overcrowded tours)! Staff was very knowledgeable and it was wonderful to discuss the wine with them (I’m a bit of a wine nerd). To top it off the food was incredible- complex flavors, delicious, traditional Greek, paired perfectly with the wines. And at the end they (spoiler alert!) surprise you with a little dessert and tsipouro! 100% recommend

We had considered doing a wine tour in Santorini, but seeing that these were quite expensive and not liking the idea of doing a tour in a big group, opted to visit Vassaltis on our own instead. The winery has a beautiful location on the east of the island, with a ground-floor terrace overlooking the vineyards. We ordered the flight of four wines and the waitress asked us if we had any dietary requirements. Since we don't eat meat, the four amuse-bouches she brought us were all fish/seafood. The waitress brought us one wine at a time, explaining the notes and which amuse-bouche to eat with it. Everything was delicious.

We had a great time at Vassaltis winery! The staff was very friendly and they did their best to accommodate us. We went for the wine tasting and the food pairing which left us very satisfied. We recommend this experience to anyone who wants to try local wines paired with very interesting flavors! We liked Assyrtiko a lot and went back to buy some bottles for home. Cheers!

We had a great tasting experience with Maria at Vassaltis. The atmosphere was very nice and modern with great views of the sea. They have indoor and outdoor seating, we opted for indoor since it was windy that day. We did the vassaltis tasting of 5 wines with 5 bites. The bites were all very gourmet and delicious. The wines were well paired and Maria was very knowledgeable. Our favorite was the oak-aged Santorini, but all were great. We tried one other winery on Santorini but this one was better and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Santorini.

The best wine and food on Santorini! „Must see” at the island. Assyrtico vertical tasting and recommendation of food (lamb) were worth the price. Hosts were very nice and helpful which makes this place just the best!

My wife and I enjoyed the degustation menu which was recommended by Artemis the hospitality manager. Rafaela was our sever/sommelier and she guided us through the pairings for what was a delicious 4 course lunch. Then we proceeded to try 2 other whites and a desert wine in addition to the original package. The tasting room was very nice and you have a view of the ocean on the non-caldera side of the island. The food was excellent , perhaps the best meal we had in Santorini. The winery is an approximate 15 minute drive from zoos so in total an approximate 3-3 1/2 hour experience that I would highly recommend.
