Nemea

Nemea is located just 1 hour from Athens and it is very close to Nafplio, the first capital of Greece. It is a highly recommended trip that you can do in a day or just a two days escape from Athens.
Nemea is a historic source of good wine in Greece and here you will find some great wineries that offer top quality wines and great variety in white and red ones, not to mention the local gastronomy, too. Combine the local wine with the local delis and the beautiful scenery and here you are, a new wine tourism experience makes it to your bucket list!





Santorini

Santorini is an exceptional wine destination! Apart from the amazing and unique location, scenery, beauty and volcanic extravaganza, Santorini is a world famous destination for its wonderful, indigenous varieties of wine. Thanks to the volcanic ground you will find unique types of wine that you can't find anywhere else in the world! 
Try your wine with the local sun dried tomatoes, the local fruits and breath in the fantastic view to the caldera. 
The wineries of Santorini are amazing and you have to visit at least a couple during  your stay!





Crete

Crete is famous for the Raki which is served every day, all day, all year round! But Raki is not the only treasure of Crete. The local wine is a must and you will find some great wines both red and white. 
Try the white and the rose as well and don't hesitate to try the house wine that is served in good traditional taverns around the island. You will be surprised!
Don't miss Trapsathiri, Daphni and Lito just some of  the  indigenous varieties and don't forget: Life is too short to drink bad wine! So enjoy your stay in Crete and cheers !







Amorgos


Amorgos is a gorgeous Cycladic Greek Island famous for its amazing beaches and blue waters and its delicious gastronomy. Wine is the next best thing for Amorgos as here you will find some of the best organic wines in Greece. Try the red ones and combine them with fresh, delicious local mezedes at the local taverns.
Try also the Psimeni raki, the local raki that is made in Amorgos and is served with honey that is also locally produced.








Chalkidiki

The region of Chalkidiki is just a short drive from Thessaloniki. Flat landscape with beautiful nature, wonderful beaches and amazing gastronomy, food and wine. Try for example Malagouzia wine, a white indigenous wine that leaves a good taste and memories of your holidays in Greece. Chalkidiki is a wonderful destination ideal for family travelers or solo travellers or even for those who are looking for some inspiration and spirituality. 
The monasteries of Agio Oros are in the region and only men can visit it and be lucky enough to try the local wine that the monks produce, visit their wineries and even be part of the grape harvesting every year.
