Santorini, though small in size, is considered to be a gastronomic destination with some of the finest restaurants and wineries throughout the country. Combined with a surreal view on the impressive Caldera, Santorini gastronomy is exceptional and slightly different than the classic Greek cuisine, since it offers local products specialties. Its local products are famous worldwide for their intense and characteristic flavor coming from the Island`s particular ecosystem and rich soil, created from volcanic explosions. The volcanic ashes which made the soil porous, humid and very fertile bring a unique flavor to the local products which stand out for their excellent quality. These products are the main ingredients of wonderful traditional and more up to date recipes. Look for the tasteful enjoyment provided by both restaurants and tavernas of the island, accompanied always with a glass of Santorini`s wine.
