Sigalas does not offer tours but offers a selection of terrace areas where you can relax with a number of local wines. We took a cab from Oia at the cost of 10 Euros at around 5pm local time and found it relatively empty.

We took our choice of table in partial shade and took the opportunity for a little amble round taking photos.

The wine menus are very good. Sigalas offers around a dozen wines and you have the choice of trying a glass, a bottle, a mini tasting or a full taste of all wines on offer for 11.05 Euros. There is a small food menu to give you something to nibble on while quaffing. All prices for the glasses of wine are about half what you'd pay in the restaurants.

We chose the full tasting. Well it would be rude not to wouldn't it? For our 11 Euros a head, we received 13 glasses of wine: 6 white, 2 rose, 3 red and 2 dessert wines; tasting notes to go with them and as much time as we wanted to go through them.

They are not miserly with the measures either and we enjoyed a good couple of hours there.

All wines are available for sale inside the shop and the ladies who work there are very knowledgeable. They will also order a taxi for you which we were happy to take advantage of - 8 Euros back to Oia.

Very much recommended.

This winery offers not only excellent wine but a fabulous menu as well! The views are great, the staff is friendly (helpful with ordering / recommendations, if needed) and the atmosphere is peaceful. A very relaxing afternoon!

Tip: If you are not part of an organized "wine tour" that includes this winery, you will need to either rent a car or take a taxi to reach it. The bus from Fira to Oia doesn't stop near here. My recommendation - rent a car so you can stay as long as you like!

A visit to the Sigalas winery is a must. Their wines are excellent and the staff very friendly and knowledgable giving useful information.
Sigalas is off the usual tourist track and it will cost about 10 euros by taxi from Oia or 20 euros from Fira to get there. The cost to taste their full range of 12 wines costs 11.50 euros- but it's well worth it. Their food menu is basic but very tasty and compliments the wines beautifully.

Stopped in one afternoon for a quick tasting, was simple and enjoyable. About 15 wines to taste, and a full menu. Setting is perfect under pergolas with the vineyard stretching out the sea. We drove there, would be quite a walk from Oia.

We went to a bunch of winery's in Santorini during our stay. We were staying in Oia and ended up walking to this winery one day. The walk is all downhill and took about 20 minutes. Then we took a taxi back up to Oia. The wonderful staff at the winery called a taxi for us and it came within 5 minutes.
I am not going to write a review on every winery we visited because a lot were forgettable. Sigalas was our favorite. Here is why: awesome food, great staff and service, beautiful terrace, you really feel like you are at a winery, and great wine. They don't give tours but we weren't there for a tour. We just wanted to relax and try their wine. The waitress explained the wines to us and answered all our questions. This was the only winery we actually bought wine from.
If you are looking for a water view this isn't the place but the terrace view is so beautiful of the vineyard. If you want the amazing water view then go to Santos winery. The views at Santos our amazing but the winery is huge, over-crowded with tour buses, and the wine at Sigalas was so much tastier. Sigalas is quaint, relaxing, quiet and romantic.
