ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Semeli Estate Nemea Reserve

Semeli Estate Nemea Reserve shows complex aromas of ripe fruits with tones of spices of cinnamon and clove and hints of oak. Rich on the palate with a full body, velvety tannins, and a lengthy finish. Agiorgitiko grapes are handpicked and transferred to the winery, where after strict selection, they are first chilled into a cooling chamber, and then cold maceration follows for up to five days, at a temperature of 8-10°C before fermentation, to maximize flavor and color extraction. Classic red wine vinification takes place in temperatures of 22-24°C. The wine is matured in French oak casks for 12 months (30% new and the rest of second use) and 12 months in the bottle, before release.

About Seméli Estate

Founded in 1979, Seméli focuses on the creation of high-quality Greek wines. Top-quality wine can only be made with the best grapes and the best grapes have a lot to do with the ‘terroir’. The gentle Mediterranean climate, the extraordinary potential of the soil, and the different varieties cultivated, together with the sun that bathes the landscape, determine the high quality of Seméli wines. The winery is located at a high altitude, amidst low-yielding vineyards on the slopes of the hilly Koutsi region, one of the most celebrated “crus” of Nemea, where crop levels are low, the concentration of flavors high, and fruit and natural acids in positive balance.

A key process at the vineyard estate is winemaking using gravity. The gravity-fed winery was designed to take full advantage of the terrain’s sloping gradient. From pressing to bottling, the entire process uses the weight of the grapes or the downward movement caused by gravity to avoid using pumps. This results in nearly zero defects and produces top-notch wines.

The Semeli estate is one of the most impressive wine-related developments in Greece, combining stunning natural beauty with easy access to cultural treasures and historical sites. The winery’s elegantly renovated multi-purpose reception and tasting hall is an ideal venue for meetings, gala dinners, incentive events, product launches, weddings, and other celebrations. The winery also has a large outdoor area that is perfect for al fresco banquets or events.
