Greek Wine: Domaine Vassiliou Announces 2014 Wine Tours

Nemeion_estateDomaine Vassiliou and Nemeion Estate have announced wine tastings and wine tours for 2014.

Domaine_Vassiliou_12A modern European unit, Domaine Vassiliou is one of the first wineries that opened to the public in the area of Koropi, Attiki. The traditional vineyards owned by Domaine Vassiliou are on the slopes of the Koropi area and cover a surface of 150 acres of well-drained calcareous and coppery soils. The varieties growing include the traditional Savvatiano, Roditis and the fragrant Asirtiko.

Nemea is one of the P.D.O. (Protected Designation of Origin) zones and perhaps the most important wine region of Greece. There, stands the Nemeion Estate, which borrowed its name from ancient Nemea and is a state of the art winery. Nemeion Estate vineyards are located in the broader Nemea viticultural zone where the best quality grapes are produced: two hectares in Koutsi, 3,5 hectares in Petri and six hectares in Asprokambos.

Domaine Vassiliou recently opened the wine museum/restaurant area (seen in photo below) where visitors can combine traditional local cuisine with the wines of Domaine Vassiliou and Nemeion Estate.
