NEMEA, rich in history and winemaking tradition

A blend of glorious natural surroundings, antiquity sites and castles springing up along the route, adorned by never ending slopes of vineyards, simply describes the region of Nemea in northeastern Peloponnese, where wine producing dates back to 2000 BC. Dedicate a day for a Wine tasting Experience of the Agiorgitiko wine with stopovers at well known wineries; the modern Skouras at Argos, the quaint Palivou Estate at the heart of Archaia Nemea, the established Ktima Papaioannou at Nemea and Semeli dominating the hills of Koutsi. Enjoy lunch prepared by a local Chef with a brief introduction by one of the resident oenologists. Explore the area’s most visited ancient sites and stop by the acropolis of Mycenaes on the Argolis plain of Peloponnese, the fort of Palamidi with the greatest Venitian fortification architecture, sail along the town’s trademark no other than the Bourtzi fort set on a small island, or walk uphill to Argonafplio castle with its Venetian walls with panoramic views of Nafplio. A must is to experience what we call the Nafplio Cultural Stroll, walking along the narrow streets and quaint neighborhoods. Discover hidden arts and crafts ceramic workshop, the Komboloi (worry beads) Museum and pass by Syntagma Square adorned by well preserved historic buildings.
