Ancient Nemea, Wine Tasting and Traditional Dinner

(1)

What You'll Do

Treat yourself to a truly decadent day-trip, filled with exquisite wines, delicious Greek food, dramatic mythology, and breathtaking scenery, ancient Nemea.

Your day will begin with a private transfer to Nemea. You’ll have the chance to explore the ancient site of Nemea with your local expert guide, who will show you the Temple of Nemean Zeus, the pride of the ancient Macedonian builders. Discover the impressive Ancient Stadium that was built in 330 B.C.

From mythological feats of bravery, you’ll discover another talent passed down through history – winemaking! At a local winery, taste 3-5 of their best wines, from deep reds to refreshing whites and summertime rosés, while you learn about local Greek wine along with a variety of cheeses from across Greece.

At the second winery you’ll get an introduction to the deep, ruby red variety of Agiorgitiko, a full wine with aromatic complexity and a smooth finish. You will have the chance to try a range of this variety while tasting 3-5 examples accompanied by regional cheeses chosen to bring out the best flavour of the wine.

This will be followed by a visit to the impressive Wisdom of Nature winery where you’ll be introduced to organic grape farming and balsamic vinegar production by locals that have devoted their lives to the Nemean land.

End your Greek wine experience and the exploration of the region of Nemea in the ultimate way – a Greek feast accompanied by an impeccable view over the valley. You’ll have the opportunity to sit down to a delicious, traditional five course dinner of traditional dishes made with fresh, local products. As the sun sets, enjoy your evening with good food, good company, and of course, the finest wines of the Nemea region, before hitting the road and returning to Athens in your private comfort and luxury!

I recently did the Lion of Nemea archeological tour, wine tasting, and lunch. It was my husband and I with my sister and her boyfriend. We had such an amazing time on the tour. Everything was perfect - wine, food, tour of ancient Nemea. Dominik was an incredibly knowledgeable and fun guide and we really enjoyed our time. He was also great at keeping us on track without rushing anything. We would so recommend this tour to others - not just an amazing intro to Nemea and Greece, but also some of the best wine tours I've been on. We have been on many and we still learned a LOT! The lunch was also incredible. If you are visiting Greece and like wine, do not miss this tour - you will not be disappointed!
