Description of the day tour to Nemea wineries

Your private driver will drive you along the coastal road of Attica towards the Corinth Canal, where you will have the chance to admire the breathtaking views to the sea and get some truly marvelous pictures. We'll continue towards Nemea, an area known for its Games (Nemean Games), that took place every two years, while the Olympic Games every four. The Nemean games included gymnastics, horse riding, music and drama – some of the most known tragedies were presented during the Games in Nemea. The Games took place in the premises of the Temple of God Zeus, whose ruins have been discovered during the excavations and are available to see today.

Nemea is also known today due to its amazing wineries. It is one of the main wine pr oducing regions in the Peloponnese and Greece in general, producing famous and tasteful red wines. The local grapes variety "Agiorgitiko" well known for the special taste and aroma, dated since 4.500 years BC, as the locals claim.By the experts is said, "Nemea climate is characterized as sub-arid and sub-humid, with average annual precipitation 700-800 mm and average temperature that ranges from 16 to 18 Celsius degrees. This special microclimate of the region is characterized by a main valley surrounded by mountains, and weather conditions ranging from mild cold winters to the warm and relatively dry summer, with several differences though between short distances within the P.D.O. Nemea zone.The clay soil is ideal for good drainage and fertility. Observing the diversity of micro climates, one discovers the different delicious result of wines between the vineyard sites, the most impressive of all being the uniqueness and importance of every year to the character of the legendary Nemea wine. The content of soil in organic and inorganic components, such as calcium carbonate, is an important factor for the installation of vineyards with high quality characteristics of a Terroir, combining the ideal soil and climate conditions. The location of the vineyards and the ideal altitude of 350-400 m act as catalysts for the proper maturation of the grapevines, which, combined with humidity from the mythical river Asopus, create a unique microclimate and reveal the unique Terroir of Nemea." There is no proof yet, who in the world ever discovered wine! Maybe was in Egypt, maybe in Greece maybe some other country with modern civilization. Nobody knows. All what exists, is the Homeric influences. He mentioned that Cyclope Polyphemus was given to drink wine from Odesseas. That the Athenians used to take their brea kfast drinking watered wine. The private wine tour to Nemea will give you the chance not only to visit the vine fields and wineries of the area but also to taste these wines yourself; and why not bring some of them with you back home to celebrate with friends. We'll be back to Athens in the afternoon.
