Tour description

Nemea has a long history of 3000 years and is known worldwide for organizing great athletic games (equivalent to the Olympic Games), for the first labor of Hercules (he killed the terrible Nemean lion there) and for being the biggest wine making area in Greece, and especially for the production of a unique variety of red wine.

Nemea doesn’t need to create myths and traditions about its wine since its roots are deep in the soil of the area. The archaeological finds indicate that the “red wine making” has its roots in ancient times and show that the residents of the region were well aware of the secrets of wine making and especially of the variety “Agiorgitiko”, which is produced only in that area. “Agiorgitiko” wine is highly popular and beloved and not a few wine lovers come to the region just to taste its wonderful flavor. It is even said that it seems to contain all the beauty of the Mediterranean, as it is friendly, warm and reflects the light and passion of the Mediterranean temperament.

Beginning of the tour

We’ll see briefly the famous Corinth Canal, the mountain that hosts the Acropolis of Corinth and Ancient Corinth and we’ll head towards the mountainous part of the region where Nemea is.

At the wineries

We will have the opportunity to talk about the wine and the whole process from fruit harvesting to extracting the grape juice, the process of fermentation to wine and finally the bottling process. We’ll take a closer look to all facilities of the winery and explain how it works. We’ll be more than happy to take any questions arise.

At the end, we’ll taste delicious wine, enjoy this amazing wine-tasting experience and mingle.

Whether you are an expert in wine tasting, or want to make your first contact with the flavors, we will arrange a visit to a winery (or a series of wineries) and offer you a great tasting experience. The colors and essences of the wines mix with the delicate flavors of traditional dishes made with fresh ingredients of the Corinthian land and create a journey of pleasures. You will also have the opportunity to learn about wine making (from fruit harvesting to bottling) while closely following all the facilities of a winery.
