Wines from Nemea
The vineyards of Nemea are stretched in the plain and reach the foot of Killinio Mountain, at an area of 22,000 acres. The vines are planted at an altitude of 200-850 meters and the whole area is under the domination of Agiorgitiko. Deep blue, with spherical grapes and thick skin, the endowed Nemea grapes are popular and multi-talented, while they produce a plethora of different wine types. We will meet Agiorgitiko wine in a wide range of types: fresh, short ageing, deep ageing, but also rosé, blanc de noir. This red variety thrives and excels here where the cool North winds and low temperatures, which usually dominate, favour its smooth maturation. Although Nemea is the largest P.D.O. zone, however displays great heterogeneity. Different altitudes, terrains, microclimates make up a puzzle of complexity which offers a great diversity to wines which are here produced. Since 1971 the red, dry wine Nemea, belongs to the category of P.D.O.
