Owner description: Boutari is one of the most awarded and most historical companies of quality wine making in Greece. It was established in 1879 in Naoussa. Boutari winery Santorini was the first winery on the island to offer tours, tastings and art programs since 1990. Its dazzling white dome was voted as one of the 10 architectural wine wonders of the world. Santorini is a magical place for making wine. Our goal is to share with you our passion for top quality winemaking. We are open every day from 10:00 – 19:00 for wine-tastings, lunch and wine-shopping. We offer everyday 5 different Food and Wine experiences. It will be our pleasure to welcome you at our winery!

Boutari is a large commercial wine operation, and it shows. Their wines are consistent, their tasting room is classy, and their staff are knowledgable. Their tasting flight offers a nice selection of their wines across varietals, and will allow you to get a taste of what each Greek grape has to offer in a wine.
Wineries in Santorini aren't traditional in the way you would envision though, so if you're expecting picturesque rows of grapes over a scenic landscape, then you're in for a disappointment. Greek wines are grown in small clusters on the ground, not up in rows, and the fields are spread out all over the island.
That being said, Boutari offers a nice tasting room, and excellent wines. If you're interested in spending an hour tasting several Greek wine varietals, Boutari is a good place to achieve that.

We spent 4 nights on the beautiful Island of Santorini. What a beautiful experience! One of those days we rented a smart car and enjoyed visiting Boutari Winery. They had a big theater room with a big screen to tell us the history of the the winery and explain how they grow their grapes on the Island. Then o to see how the grapes actually grow. We found it very interesting since we are from the state of Washington and enjoy wine! We were pleasantly surprised! We really did Like their wines! Fun day

This winery did the best wine and food pairing that I have ever had (and I've been to several places in Napa/Sonoma, NYS and Italy). First we were given one glass of white wine, and then they brought out appetizers with a different wine. Then came the salad with another. Then another wine that initially I thought was good but maybe I wouldn't be purchasing any. Then they brought the main course. It was an actual OMG moment when the main dish, pork loin, was coupled with the wine. Of course, yes, I made a purchase! It was superb!

My wife and I took the bus from our hotel to Boutari which was a pretty short trip. If you ask the bus driver to drop you off at the winery, chances are they will. The winery offered a free tour with the purchase of a tasting (either 6 or 8 euros). There were plenty of nice wines to choose from, and they will ship them for you if you want to purchase a case, which we did. It was interesting to see the differences in the way that they make wine in a dry atmosphere and learn the effects that it has on the grapes and the production process. If you're interested in doing something other than going to the beach and want to get away from the tourists on the cruises, it's a great way to spend a few hours.

We loved this winery. It was not as populated as others-- a hidden gem. And of course, the wine was fantastic!!
