It was our honeymoon in Greece and my new husbands birthday while in Santorini! I wanted to do something special and was looking for a wine tour. We have enjoyed wine tasting in several places in the US (Napa, Portland, Virginia) but are not the "tour" type. We generally like to carve our own path when we travel. That said,... More

Just returned from a Mediterranean Cruise… We had the pleasure of booking a semi private wine tour with Phenix when we docked in Santorini. I should say tendered to the port then bypassed the donkeys and opted for the cable car to town. Phenix met us on time at the predetermined café. There were six people on the tour with... More

Our wine tour with Phenix was a blast! She happily fit us in, even though we had a tight time frame and was very accommodating. We visited 3 wineries and had a ton of samples (and some food)! She was very knowledgeable about the area and the history of wine in Greece. I have written more about what you can... More

This tour lived up to and exceed our expectations! Unlike other tours we have been on, this tour felt personal, like we had a friend on the island to show us a great time. Phenix was an excellent and knowledgeable host. This tour is like a mix of Bourdain and food network! The cooking class allowed us to learn how... More

Enjoyed the tour, the guide was knowledgeable, but her manner was almost pushy - a little brusque. We visited some very nice wineries.

Phenix knows so much about the wines of Santorini, she can give you both the big picture and how each producer and wine fits inside. You leave her class with a strong background on what makes Santorini wines unique and what to look for when you try a bottle. We did a wine tour and cooking class, and both were... More

A wonderful behind the scenes look at a very beautiful place! Phoenix was a fabulous hostess and clearly loves her home. We are able to see the unique grape growing and harvesting techniques employed by the Santorini wine makers, taste some lovely wines and still have time left over for a few hours on the beach and a fantastic lunch...

We were fortunate enough to book a tour with Phenix last minute and were so glad we did! We knew nothing if wines beforehand and came away from a 3 vineyard tour feeling like experts in the unique varieties of Santorini. Phenix is unbelievably informative and enthusiastic about the wine industry on the island and we were fascinated by the... More

This was such an enjoyable day. We enjoyed a tour of two wineries.GAIA Winery and Estate Argyros. We enjoyed wine-tasting and had the opportunity to purchase wines. The wines we purchased were vacuum packed in bubble sacs for travel. We learned all about the "unique" wine growing industry on Santorini. It was so informative and we were able to tak... More

My girlfriend and I did a private wine tour with Phenix. Neither of us are experts in wine and weren't sure what to expect but we both were thrilled that we went on the tour and I highly recommend anyone going to Santorini to tour with Phenix. She is an expert in wine and also shares a lot of info... More
