Sigalas Winery is located on the outskirts of Oia, Santorini, near the traditional village of Finikia.

Also known as Domaine Sigalas, this is a small, scenic winery in Baxedes near Oia, offering award-winning wines and good views of the sunset year-round. As with most of Santorini wineries, the most commonly used variety of white grape here is Assyrtiko, used alone or blended with Athiri, Aidani, Mandilaria, and Mavrotragano grapes. Sigalas’ renowned and award-winning wines are available across Greece and exported worldwide.

Wine tasting and tours of Sigalas Winery start at €12/person; their 2-hour Vineyard, Wine, and Gastronomy Tour is a worthwhile splurge. An excellent 6-course seasonal degustation menu is offered in the winery tasting room (48 hours advance notice required); other restaurants are within walking distance, including a traditional taverna 20 minutes up the road.
