Wine Tour to Ancient Nemea, Peloponnese from Athens...
Are you interested into wine tasting? This full day wine tour to Ancient Nemea, Peloponnese is a must for wine lovers! Visit two wineries in Nemea, whose wines were established in the market and in the conscience of Greek public. Taste wine varieties, well known for their special taste and aroma.
In the wineries you will have the chance to taste varieties of wines like Agioritiko, Roditis, Malagousia, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah which are very well known for their special taste and aroma and as the locals claim, especially Agiorgitiko is dated since 4.500 BC. It is said that the climate and the altitude in Nemea is the ideal one for vineyards and that is what makes the wines produced here excellent and well known all over the world. This tour is suitable for those who seek an escape from the ordinary and are looking for a different type of excursion. Our private tour ends with a visit in the beautiful seaside town of Nafplio, where you can visit the Castle of the Town by climbing 999 steps or the small island of Bourtzi, the fort on the sea and Nafplio ’s trademark.
