Every wine lover knows there is nothing better than drinking a cold glass of wine in a beautiful winery somewhere where the weather is sunny and wonderful. And what better place for your upcoming summer vacation than Greece? Here is a short Mykonos winery guide if you decide to go to The Island of the Winds for your holiday.

Want to Admire the Sunset With a Glass of Wine in Your Hand? You’ve Come to the Right Place

Mykonos is known for its beauty and unique Greek architecture. It’s one of the most popular summer destinations in Greece. The weather is always sunny, the beaches are sandy, and you can go shopping in some of the best stores in the world, not to mention how delicious Greek food is. The only thing that could make your summer vacation in this piece of paradise even more perfect is a cold glass of the locals’ finest.

Mykonos Has Some Great Attractions, but Nothing Beats Sipping Wine All Day at the Beach

No matter how many popular tourist attractions the island has to offer, there is nothing better than just chilling at one of the gorgeous beaches and drinking some delicious wine made in Mykonos. It is believed that wine has been made on the island ever since it was first inhabited, but it wasn’t until 1990 that it was commercially produced.

And since then, locals have perfected the production process. One of the reasons why wine from The Island of the Winds is so delicious is because vineyards have a lot of help from the strong winds – cool winds from the north in the summer months and warm winds from the south in the winter months are very beneficial for the plants.

What Better Way to Spend a Day of Your Vacation Than by Going on a Mykonos Winery Tour and Tasting Some Delicious Wine?

Mykonos is known for being the destination that offers endless possibilities for fun, so the chances of you having a boring summer holiday are slim to none. If you want to have a truly beautiful, memorable day spent outside in nature and the sun, you need to consider going on a wine-tasting tour.

You can drink amazing wines, eat delicious Greek appetizers, listen to calming classical music, and admire the scenery. There are many well-organized tours on the island. You could be picked up right at your luxury Mykonos villa and dropped off at the local winery. There, you will be able to taste the most delicious wine of your life while admiring the picturesque surroundings and gorgeous views of the sunset.

You will also be able to witness the entire production process and get a step-by-step tutorial on how the wines are made. These tours have quickly become the main local tourist attractions because they are one of the most beautiful experiences you can have during your stay. The whole experience costs around 100 euros, depending on the winery and your place of pickup, and you just have to be over 18 years old.

You Can Also Organize Your Own Tour and Visit Popular Wineries on Your Own

If you don’t feel like going on an organized tour for whatever reason – maybe it’s too expensive for you, or perhaps the arranged time does not work for you, don’t worry, you can organize your own tour of the winery. Simply rent a car, ask your concierge to help you out with the details, such as calling the winery and scheduling the tour, and have the best time ever. Of course, the driver shouldn’t be drinking, or you can hire a private driver to make sure everyone gets back to the villa safely.

Greece Isn’t Just Known for Great Olive Oil and Feta Cheese – They Also Have Delicious Wines

The gorgeous country of Greece is known for its production of amazing Greek olive oil. How could it not be when Greek soil is perfect for growing olive trees, and they’re practically everywhere you look. However, an interesting fact not many people know about is that Greek soil is also perfect for growing grapes and building vineyards.

The warm Mediterranean climate is the key component to success when it comes to Greek vineyards. Wine made in Greece is among the most delicious in the world, especially if it’s made in one of the gorgeous Mykonian vineyards. These are the three main grape varieties on the island:

  • Syrah,
