We start the tour from the vineyards of a well-known winery in the region of Nemea. We provide information on the principles of organic and biodynamic cultivation, which are crucial for an excellent raw material, the grape. We make a journey through time through the myths and history of Nemea. Of course, we are also talking about the special features of the PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin) zone and the uniqueness of Agiorgitiko.
Next stop, the cork oak that adorns the estate's yard. An essential step in understanding how to produce cork, is to closely observe the tree.
We continue in the production area. Here, we connect tradition with modern technology. Among other things, on the one hand we have the grandfather's "strofilia" and on the other hand the modern spiritual press. We get a taste of all the stages, from the production of the grapes to the bottling. Of course we can't exclude the cellar, full of old and new barrels, from where the heady smell of ripe wine emerges.
Finally, there is no better way to close your visit, than by tasting the wines. The ideal way to see the results of all the procedures described during the tour.

The olive oil tasting is harmoniously combined with the wine tasting and is included, as the estate has olive trees of 300 years old, in the unique varieties of "koroneiko" and "manaki", which we will also try!
