Nemea Winery Cooperative

The Nemea Winery Cooperative was founded on May 11, 1937, initially comprising 70 members. In 1959, in collaboration with the Wine Institute, it conducted the first experimental bottling of Agiorgitiko wine.

Today, after 82 years of operation and in modern facilities, the Cooperative counts over 500 members – growers of the indigenous red variety “Agiorgitiko” – and has the capacity to process up to 7,000 tons of grapes annually, making it one of the largest producers nationwide.
