Archaies Kleones

Archaies Kleones is a settlement in the municipality of Nemea, Corinthia, Greece. It is situated on a hillside, 8 km east of Nemea and 14 km (approx. 9 miles) southwest of Corinth.
Archaies Kleones was named after the ancient town Cleonae . It was a city of ancient Argolis, situated on the road from Argos to Corinth. Cleonae was a small town, mainly known for the Nemean Games that took place in its territory. According to mythology, Heracles killed the brothers Eurytus and Cteatus near Cleonae.
Today, the appellation of Nemea is the most important red wine PDO of southern Greece and arguably of all of Greece. The wines which are produced by this variety are also PDO products of Nemea. Even during the Mycenaean years the area was known for the famous “Fliasio wine” which was used during the symposiums. In the region of Nemea, the indigenous Greek Agiorgitiko grape is used and produces wines famous for their deep red color with violet and blue hues, complex aroma and long, velvety palate.
