Wine regions
We have chosen three regions of the Peloponnese, which you can easily visit in a couple of days. A visit to the wineries here can be combined with a stay in a mountain village, and excursions to archeological sites, monasteries or museums.

The first reference to the wine tradition of the Peloponnese came from Homer who called it Ampeloessa, meaning "full of vines." Neither wars nor phylloxera were able to stop the production of wine here in one of the most historic wine regions of Greece. Spread throughout hillsides, plains and plateaus, the vineyards of the Peloponnese are known for their diversity and complexity

Wine region Nemea Gaia
 
  Nemea
Not far from the pretty town of Nafplion we find Nemea, the most important AOC region in southern Greece for the production of red wines. Nemea is considered the crown jewel of the new wine industry. Here the Agiorghitiko grape (Saint George) is used and produces wines famous for their deep red color, complex aroma and long, velvety palate.

  Mantinia
In the high altitudes of Mantinia, the noble Moschofilero grape is cultivated producing the AOC wines, Mantinia. The continental climate together with the poor, but well drained soil also leads to the production of some exciting aromatic and elegant white wines.
