Discover the terroir of Nemea For Two
“At vineyards that are all the more magical for the incredible scenery of the Peloponnese, enjoy a wine-growing tradition that feels like it was gifted by the gods.”
Nemea is arguably Greece’s most important red-wine appellation, located in the northeast corner of the Peloponnese peninsula. The mountains and valleys surrounding the small village of Nemea have been producing wine for centuries, mostly from the native Agiorgitiko variety. Vine-growing in Nemea, dates back to at least the 5th Century B.C., although the exact date is hard to pinpoint.
The village of Nemea is around 72 miles or 116km West-southwest of Athens, and the designation that surrounds the village is geographically the largest in Greece. Around 40 wineries are located within Nemea’s boundaries, and the area has seen a huge amount of investment and growth over the past few decades. It is widely considered that the best examples of Nemea wine are made from vineyards at the highest altitudes, where thin, gravelly soils and lower temperatures help to produce high-quality grapes. A wide range of styles are made from this red grape variety, from rich, age-worthy dry wines to lighter, sweeter examples.
