What To Expect
We will drive along the coastal road and make a short stop at Corinth canal before going on to ancient Corinth, where St. Paul lived and preached. Ancient Corinth was one of the most important cities of ancient Greece. We will visit the Agora as well as one of the most outstanding monuments of the pre-Roman period, the temple of Apollo. Then we will continue to visit one of the most famous vineyards 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 Greeks producing wine since the Neolithic Age, 4000 B.C., but also 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 modem technology, offers a wide variety of fine wines. NEMEA is one of the most popular vineyards in Greece. Until 31 March 2017, we will visit their state of the art winery facilities. We will learn everything about the production of Greek quality red wine and then we will proceed to the underground cellars which has more than 1000 French oak barriques. Finally we will taste some of the best wines of the place.
Starting 01 April 2017, stop by the Monastery of Daphni. An 11th century Byzantine monastery listed as a World Heritage site, marvel at the spectacular interior of the church decorated with fantastic mosaics that narrate scenes from the life of Christ and the Virgin Mary.
