The Volcan wines winery and the Wine Museum are located in Vothonas, on the road to Kamari beach. It is a family run business, which was established in 1870 by Gregory & Dimitris Koutsogiannopoulos bros.
Today, after four generations, it continues to operate by George Koutsogiannopoulos.
Modern stainless steel machines replaced the utensils and tools. The wine making takes place in a traditional styled and modern operational infrastructure building that also houses the impressive cave Wine Museum.
This unique cave Wine Museum is 8 meters under the ground level and is 300 meters long. It is has a labyrinth-like shape and presents the history of wine and the life of vine-growers in Santorini from 1660 to 1970. The visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the history of wine, through representations and automatic private guidance in nine languages.
