Full description
One of the most famous appellation of origin wines of Peloponnese is Mantinia. Mantinia, located in the heart of Peloponnese, is approximately 160 kilometers from Athens near the city of Tripoli.

As you head out to this region, you will drive through beautiful nature and endless vineyards, and within 1.5 hours you will arrive in Mantinia. Once here, you will visit two wineries with incredible local wines, be introduced to the wine history of the region and taste some exceptional wine products.

Mantinia produces PDO wines from the aromatic white variety of Moschofilero. Another white variety that you will can find in the region is Asproudes, which is allowed to be mixed at certain percentages with Moschofilero to produce PDO wines. Moschofilero is a variety with a high acidity that separates it from dry whites, it also produce sparkling wines either with the traditional or the closed tank method. Along the way you will also have time to explore the famous cave of Kapsia, a wonder of nature.
