Cycling wine tours take place in Nemea, a region famous for its wines since Antiquity. Especially its “Agiorghitiko” variety has been reborn in recent years by pioneering Greek winemakers and is finally taking its place on the world’s wine lists. Our Cycling wine tours are organised in cooperation with Cycling4Wine.

Description
This ride starts off with a visit to the newly built Environmental Museum of Stymfalia. You will then cycle around the ancient lake before climbing gently around 200m to the top the mountain, from where the valley of Nemea comes into sight in its full glory. After the climb comes an enjoyably steep descent to reach the plains and start zigzagging through the vineyards, where you will be dazed by the breathtaking scenery. You will visit many wineries, such as Domaines Vasiliou, Skouras, Tselepos, Palivos, Spiropoulos, Semeli and Aivalis, taste various excellent wines and talk to the people who make them. At the end of the end a meal worthy of the area’s fine wines will be served to you in one of the wineries.
