5. Santorini, Greece


Oenophiles, break out the ice bucket and start warming up your swirling hands. Not only is this Greek isle famous for its spectacular blue and white skyline, it’s also the birthplace of some of the finest white wines in the world. Spend the morning touring a few of the wineries and vineyards that dot the island, where the assyrtiko vines are trained to grow into a basket-like shape that helps protect them from the wind and sun, then hit the coast in time to catch a breath-takingly romantic sunset, with a perfectly chilled bottle in tow.
