Ted Lelekas – Nemea Wine Tour 2014 winelover

 

Greece make some tremendous wines and some countries should be envious of it’s diversity and richness of grape varieties.

This is what this great short 25 minutes movie plans to reveal you.

4 intense days, 29 wineries, a bit more than 120 wines tasted.

10 #winelover s from all over the world on a journey to discover its wines, cuisine, natural beauty and hospitality. This is a video diary of their amazing experience. Please share it and visit Nemea, to live your own version of its magic!

 

 

As some #winelover  reveals it has been an eye opening  and intense trip for many of them.

Displaying level, and quality, amongst freshness, fruity side, reserva styles and others.

Nemea reveals itself as a charming and generous wine regions, who can delight visitors by it’s poetic side with mountains and so on but also by the friendly producers and the beauty of its wines.

An historic wine region.

Nemea is arguably Greece’s most important red-wine appellation, located in the north-eastern corner of the Peloponnese peninsula. The mountains and valleys surrounding the small village of Nemea have been producing wine for centuries, mostly from the native Agiorgitiko grape. A wide range of styles are made from this red grape variety, from rich, age-worthy dry wines to lighter, sweeter examples.
