Hear the story of Hercules, who in Greek myth, killed a giant lion in Nemea
Visit two wineries in the heart of Nemea’s famous winemaking region
We visit two wineries of the region, we meet their producers and we are briefed about the production conditions and the harvest procedures. The owners reveal the secrets of wine and offer to us the special varieties of the area, like Moschofilero, Roditis (white variety) and Agiorgitiko (red variety) accompanied by the appropriate dishes.
This tour exceeded my expectations. The region of Nemea was beautiful with such an interesting history. Visits to the winemakers were great...we happened to be there while they were bringing in grapes that had just been picked. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend the day with.
