Full day private tour in the vineyards of Nemea
Nemea, located in Peloponnese, is very famous for its history and for its wine tradition.
Here was the place where Hercules killed the lion and performed the first of his 12 labors. Also here were taking place the Nemea Games which glory was antagonizing the glory of the Olympic Games.
Apart from its history, the wine-growing zone of Nemea is also a blessed wine region of 19, 000 acres, where a proposed tourist route of the wines of Corinthia and Argolis is operating for some years now with perhaps the noblest variety in Greece. During our tour we will visit the endless vineyards of Nemea and some of the wineries and we will learn all the secrets of wine and winemaking.
Unique pictures, divine flavors and aromas will remain indelibly etched in our minds for many years after this unique experience.
I am not a licensed guide and I will not be able to come with you inside the historical sites.
We pick you up from our meeting point and we head to the region of Nemea.
Forty five minutes later we visit the Archeological site of Nemea where we admire the sanctuary that was set up for Zeus, the father of Heracles, and The Stadium of Nemea.
Then we visit two wineries of the region, we tour in their vineyards and we taste unique varieties of wines, accompanied by Greek dishes. We learn about the special varieties of the area, like Moschofilero, Roditis (white variety) and Agiorgitiko (red variety), we meet their producers and we discuss the details of wine-making.
Finally we take the road back for our departure point.

Nikos was delightful and informative. We booked this tour after a week in Tuscany, not knowing what to expect. The wines were all different and surprisingly delicious. Very happy with Niko's guidance and his gentle personality. I imagine any tour he puts together would be fabulous!
