Description of the private wine tour in the Peloponnese 

Grape picking in Nemea

Nemea was very much known in the ancient times because of the Panhellenic Games organised in the Temple of Zeus, featuring contests in music, drama, horse riding and gymnastics.Ancient Greeks celebrated athletic religious holidays, organized like the Delphic Games. The other known games of the time were the Isthmia and the famous to date Olympic games, which formed the circle of the holy Panhellenic Games.In each of these four sites, alternating each year and for some time, a sacred truce was announced, preventing every war and every warfare and all the Greeks, declared their presence, recognizing their common human nature and origin.

Nemea Games held both athletic and equestrian events. Subsequently  musical games were added. The events were Stadium (178 meters), Diavlos (355 meters), Hippios (710 meters), Horsegram (3,600 meters), Hoplite road (3,600 meters), Pangratio,  boxing, wrestling and pentathlon.Today, Nemea is also known as one of the most important wine producing regions in Greece. The production of red wine from Nemea is truly famous. Therefore, the private wine tour will take you not only to the archaeological site of the region that is nice to see, but also to the winery that will truly amaze you.

Greek wines from the area of Nemea

Nemea lies at an altitude of 200 to 800m ASL and the most predominant variety cultivated here is the red Agiorgitiko. It is one of the most tasteful varieties and provides the opportunity to create a wide range of wines: some of the most known ones are the V.Q.P.R.D. Nemea wines, along with a ros, and some full flavored aged red wines.Some of the other known varieties produced in the Nemea Wineries are: Plagion, Argous, Pterotou, Peloponnesian, Corinthian, Plagion of Mountainous Corinthia, Klimenti and Iliou. These are red wines which are mostly known due to their strong aroma and fruity flavor.After the visit to the winery and the wine tasting, we will be driving towards Nafplion, the picturesque town in Argolis that was the first capital city of Greece. Here you will have the chance to have free time for lunch or to visit the Palamidi Fortress.Nafplion is a wonderful small town, known for its narrow cobblestone streets with the numerous little shops that provide you with either local food and wine products or with amazing hand made objects and artecrafts.Nafplion is also known due to its Fortress, the imposing Palamidi, which stands above the city. You can reach the fortress by car, or if you are up to some adventure you can climb the 999 stairs that lead to it! And when you are up there, you can admire the breathtaking views to the entire bay and the city of  Nafplion and Argos.
