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.
