A few words for the unique place you are going to discover…..
First of all, vineyards have been cultivated in Greece and formed an important part of Greek culture since Antiquity. In the 1990s production took a leap forward with the introduction of new wine-making technologies (eg. steel tanks with temperature control) and the systematic search for and re-cultivation of indigenous varieties. Today there are more than 700 wineries and they produce more than 2.500 different wines.
Of the 4 most exported Greek varieties (2 reds and 2 whites), 2 originate in the northern Peloponnese:
The red Aghiorgitiko was born more than 2.000 years ago and is still cultivated in Nemea, and the white “Moschofilero” originates in Mantineia. Nemea is situated 40 km from Le CONVIVIAL and the wine roads which bear the same name start almost on our doorstep!
Mantineia is situated a few km south of Nemea, in the famous Arcadia district.
The seminars and wine tastings
Our “Introduction to Greek wines” seminar will take you on a journey around Greece, from the southern islands of Crete and Santorini, to the northern mountains of Macedonia, guiding you along the way through our most famous wine houses and introducing you to our most interesting local varieties.
“Wine making” will familiarize you with basic and more advanced wine making techniques, in order to allow you to better appreciate the effort inherent in a high quality wine, as well as the risks involved throughout the process.
Wine tasting sessions aim to help you demystify the art of appreciating wine and to introduce you to the complex and very rewarding world of good wine!

Grape Seed Polyphenols: Exceptional Anti-Oxidants
Grape polyphenols fight against free radicals, which cause 80% of skin aging. These free radicals are generated by light, pollution, smoke, etc. As a result, they destroy our cells and thus lead to premature aging. Also, they are the culprits that cause your car to rust and your fruit to turn brown.
Polyphenols offer unequalled action against free radicals at the very heart of the cell all day long.
