Embark on a captivating day trip from Athens, where the ancient meets the modern, and the essence of Greek culture unfolds amidst olive groves and vineyards. Our journey begins with a brief pause at the iconic Corinth Canal, where you'll witness the melding of two seas, connecting the Aegean and Ionian with a breathtaking view.

Our first destination takes you deep into the heart of the Peloponnese, offering two unique options for an intimate olive oil immersion:

Option 1 - Olive Grove Experience: Immerse yourself in the warmth of a family-run olive grove. Stroll through flourishing cultivation, engage in discussions about olive varieties, and learn about the esteemed Manaki cultivar. The highlight awaits at an open-air kiosk, perched atop the olive grove, for a curated olive oil tasting amidst breathtaking views of the landscape.

(Semi-private option. Maximum capacity 8 people.)

Option 2 - Olive Mill Experience: Step into a family-run olive mill for an immersive, holistic experience. Visit their olive grove, get a tour of their olive mill and witness the complete olive oil production cycle through VR headsets, experiencing the family's dedication from grove to bottle. Finally, sample the liquid gold in the factory's tasting room, savoring the unique flavors of their production.

(Private option.)

After this enriching olive oil experience, the journey continues to the renowned wine region of Nemea. Venture into ancient traditions and modern viticulture, savoring a delectable meal paired with an extensive selection of local wines at a charming wine restaurant. The restaurant boasts a broad wine list featuring labels from all 17 wine villages of Nemea. Guided by a skilled sommelier, you'll receive personalized suggestions to enhance your dining experience, ensuring each sip is a celebration of the diverse flavors of Nemean wines, making this an unforgettable moment in your Greek odyssey.

After this fulfilling gastronomic experience, we visit a family-run wine estate, delving into the secrets of grape cultivation, vinification, and wine maturation. The guided winery tour culminates in a wine-tasting session featuring five different iconic estate labels, showcasing leading PDO wines (the Agiorgitiko variety, red wine) and premium blends that embody the essence of Nemean terroir.

This combined journey promises an immersive day filled with nature, knowledge, and the rich flavors of Greek cuisine and wine. This is not just a trip; it's a sensory exploration, a celebration of Greek heritage, and an odyssey that lingers on the palate and in the heart. Join us for an unforgettable experience where every sip and every bite tell a tale of tradition, passion, and the timeless beauty of Greece.
