Seméli Estate


Seméli is a dramatically located modern winery that is well set up for visits. It produces several delicious agiorgitiko reds, as well as other varietals. Whites include moschofilero – try the one that has sat on the lees for extra complexity – chardonnay and sauvignon blanc, and there are also rosés. Tastings include a winery tour. It's 7km north of Nemea.
