A unique guided bike or e-bike and wine tour through the vineyard of Nemea; one of the most important viticultural regions of Greece since antiquity and one of the oldest known wine growing regions of the world. This is also the region where, according Greek mythology, Hercules had vanquished the monstruous lion and then, the Nemean Games; an event little inferior to the Olympic Games, took place to honor Zeus. You will visit the archaeological site and taste the wine of the local grape variety of Agiorgitiko.
