Being the only one of its kind in Greece, the Koutsoyannopoulos Wine Museum occupies a natural cave. It is eight meters below ground, 300 meters long and has a labyrinth-like shape. The Koutsoyannopoulos Wine Museum presents the history of wine and the life of vine-growers in Santorini since the 1600s. It took twenty-one years of hard work, patience and perseverance to create the wine museum. This endeavour was funded entirely by Koutsoyannopoulos family.

During the tour, the visitors have the opportunity to see representations of the history of wine. An automatic audio guide is available in fourteen languages , and a guidebook is also available in twenty-two languages. The family created the museum out of its love and passion for tradition and wine. As fourth-generation winemakers, the owners today are proud to continue the tradition of producing high quality wines. The whole range of tools , vessels and machinery are genuine and rare pieces, which have been valued greatly by past generations of the Koutsoyannopoulos family through years of use. The stages of the winemaking process and the whole range of machinery are presented in chronological order. The visitors can experience the stages of pruning and ploughing of the vineyards, harvesting , stomping and weighing of the grapes. The rare exhibits, including winemaking machinery and tools, will take the visitors back in time to another era.  Lastly, the visitors will have the opportunity to taste four of the best wines that our winery produces today, in a specially designed wine-tasting area. In this manner, the visitors will keep the memory of travelling into the past alive.
