Overview

The Peloponnese, also called “Polystafyllos” * in ancient documents, is dominated by lofty mountains and extremely fertile lands. Located in the south and bordered by sea on all sides this mountainous landscape enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate on its coasts, becoming more continental further inland. A wide range of meso-climates and temperatures, however, gives each vineyard a distinct character. Vine cultivation in the Peloponnese is fascinating and dates back to antiquity with local varieties gaining world reputation. 

Our Kalavryta wine tasting tour starts from the traditional village of Kalavryta. We  will set off to the vineyards of the Aegialia and Mt Chelmos area. One of the four Protected Designation of Origin Zones of the Peloponnese producing dry and sweet wines.The PDO wines of Achaia are made from the variety Roditis and Black Kalavrytian with some of the best vineyards situated at 800-1.000m above sea level on the slope of Mt. Chelmos. The area’s sweet wines made from the famous Mavrodafni grape also enjoy a well-justified reputation.

Our tour will take us to a couple of traditional local wineries where we will have the opportunity to taste and enjoy local wines. We will learn all there is about local grapes varieties, traditional winemaking, and local wines. 

This tour is ideal for foodies and wine enthusiasts! 

*Polystafyllos: the area that bears a lot of grapes
