Discover the treasures of Greece’s largest wine region

Every region in the Peloponnese has vineyards, producing wines (whites, reds, roses and dessert) with distinct character and identity: Nemea is the first region we will visit -considered the ‘star’ among the wine regions, Argolis and Mantineia further south.  Τo the west we will explore the wines in the land of king Nestor.  In Kalamata we will enjoy some of the tastiest olive oils and olives, along with local sweet and savoury delicacies.
