The Peloponnese is part of mainland Greece, but only just - a peninsula (with four smaller peninsulas of its own) attached to the central part of the country by the Isthmus of Corinth. It is home to a huge variety of vineyards and grape varieties, making it one of the most exciting areas for wine in the country. While white or pink varieties such as Roditis and Moschofilero dominate, it is also home to Agiorgitiko, the great red grape that reaches its pinnacle with Nemea. Generally speaking, the best wines of the Peloponnese are ripe, generous and warm, without being heavy or overpowering.
