Wine Routes of the Peloponnese, 6 days! Day 3 ATHENS – CORINTH - NEMEA Today, your 4-day car rental will be delivered to your hotel. Leave Athens and drive west to the Peloponnese. Your first stop can be at the Corinth Canal. Towards the southern end of the canal lies the site of Ancient Isthmia, once the major religious centre devoted to Poseidon and location of the Isthmian Games. Continue on to Ancient Nemea, where you can visit the museum and the 400m Hellenistic stadium. At this stadium the Nemean Games were held every two years and the winners were crowned with a wreath of wild celery. Checkin at your hotel in Mantineia and head out to the Palivos Wine Estate for your first winetasting visit. The Agiorgitiko grape has adjusted perfectly here, especially to the middle of three zones of different elevations, the so-called 'semi-mountainous' zone, at elevations of between 450 and 650 meters, where the overlap of ideal conditions result in good fruit, acidity, body and color that meet the current high expectations for serious wine in world markets. Enjoy dinner at one of the cosy tavernas /restaurants in the area. Day 4 NEMEA – MYKENAE Today’s program includes visits to 2 more local Estates in Nemea.
