A divine Greek experience

Have you ever dreamt of exploring picturesque landscapes, with vineyards stretching as far as the eye can see while tasting the finest wines Greece has to offer? Your dream road trip awaits in the stunning region of Peloponnese, in southern Greece.

Peloponnese is a wine lover's paradise, where history, culture, and exceptional wines converge to create an unforgettable experience. Imagine yourself driving along winding roads, surrounded by rolling hills, ancient ruins, and vineyards under the Greek sun.

The story of local grape varieties in the Peloponnese dates back thousands of years. These grape varieties have been cultivated by the region's inhabitants since ancient times, preserving their unique flavours and characteristics throughout the ages. From the robust Agiorgitiko to the aromatic Moschofilero, each grape variety has its own tale, offering a glimpse into the region's winemaking heritage.

Your journey begins in Nemea, a place where the past meets the present in a symphony of flavours and aromas. Here, except for ancient temples and crumbling stone walls, lies a treasure trove of local wineries and unique varieties waiting to be discovered. The most famous is Agiorgitiko, a grape variety that reigns supreme, producing bold and elegant red wines that have captivated wine lovers for centuries. In Nemea, there are 17 villages of winemaking, where you can visit family wineries or the most prominent ones, where you can have a tour guide and amazing wine pairings with local goodies.

Next stop, Argolida, where Assyrtiko and Malagousia grapes take center stage. Argolida is a region blessed with fertile soil and a Mediterranean climate ideal for winemaking. Here, among rolling hills and ancient ruins, hidden gems are waiting to be unearthed. Explore the serene countryside to find family-owned vineyards in picturesque villages and live the experience as a local. Here, tradition reigns supreme, and every bottle tells a story of hard work, dedication, and a deep respect for the land.

After wine tasting in Argolida, you can explore some of the most well-known historical sights in Greece. Within a short distance lies the ancient city of Mycenae, where you can walk through the Lion Gate and discover the secrets of an ancient civilization. Then, visit the iconic Epidaurus Theater, known for its exceptional acoustics and awe-inspiring architecture. The city of Nafplion is also nearby, where you can take a stroll by the sea and taste local delicacies.

And then there's Achaia, a region of unique beauty and innovative winemaking. Beyond towering mountains and lush valleys, uncover the secrets of Mavrodaphne and Roditis, two grape varieties that embody the spirit of the Peloponnese. Sweet and luscious Mavrodaphne wines make a perfect match with dried fruits and spices, while crisp and refreshing Roditis whites pair perfectly with fresh seafood. If you want to explore the region a little more, you can drive to the biggest city in Achaia, Patras, which lies by the sea. Take a walk in the city center and relax in the central square with a coffee or even some more wine!

From the captivating wineries and vineyards to the rich history and breathtaking landscapes, Peloponnese has offered a truly unique and unforgettable experience. Pack your bags, hit the road, and embark on a wine lover's adventure through the vineyard-draped roads of Peloponnese.
