Leave Athens and drive South West until we reach the Corinth Canal which connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea (short stop).
Drive on and visit the Ancient Town of Corinth where St. Paul lived and preached for two years. The remains of the City, which include the Agora (market place) and Apollo's Temple (6th century B.C.) clearly show how rich and important Corinth was in Ancient Times. Then we will continue to visit one of the most famous wineries of Nemea. Greece may well possess first place in the hierarchy of countries known for their tradition in viticulture. Not only is this due to the Greeks producing wines since the Neolithic Age - 4000 B.C. - but also due to the fact that wine has long been adored, praised and chanted in the name of god Dionysus.
Nowadays, Greek wine production, abiding by tradition but invigorated by modern technology, offers a a wide variety of fine wines. Nemea is one of the most popular vineyards in Greece. We will visit the the state of art winery facilities. We will learn everything on the production of Greek quality red wine and then we will proceed to the underground cellars with more than 1000 French oak barriques. Finally we will taste some of the best wines of the domaine.
