Crossing the Gorge of Vouraikos , a geologic area recognized by Unesco , by the cogged railroad – a toothed narrow gauge–offers one of the most spectacular experiences in the world. The Guardian proposes the train journey as one of the world’s 10 best public transport rides.
Feel the power of the gorge and the striking natural beauty scenery with a glass of wine on this breathtaking railwayjourney and learn about the history of the area.
Your experience to the “Paths of Holly Wine”, a particular Greek wine tour, starts with a leisure walking tour in the dreamy setting of Kalavryta town that will definitely enchant you with its beauty and simplicity.
After working up your appetite exploring the wonders of the route, you will visit the monastery of Mega Spileon built in 362 AD and the cellar of the Monastery, with the famous 500lt barrels, where the monks from Mega Ambelos, as they called the vineyard of the monastery, carried the must.
Our Wine Ambassador will take you through the monastery’s vineyard, which is located on the Vouraikos Gorge, where the vines are cultivated for more than 450 years. In the vineyard of the Monastery there is still the stone winery, as well as, the church where the divine service took place during the cultivation and the harvest.The revival of the vineyard in recent decades offers an authentic Greek wine tasting from “forgotten” local varieties.
Carry your new wine knowledge with you under the shade of the ancient trees at the vineyards, and indulge your senses with local specialties paired with the monastery’s wines.

Abbiamo organizzato un fantastico tour enogastronomico attraverso gli antichi vigneti della regione dellìAchaia. Abbiamo visitato due enoteche, ci siamo arrivati con un trenino che ha attraversato li Gole del Bouraikos. Durante il viaggio ci hanno offerto dei vini locali che abbiamo gustato ammirando il suggestivo panorama dei vigneti della Grande Caverna. Abbiamo visitato un antichissimo monastero, le sue antiche e austere celle. Oltre ad aver assaporato buon vino abbiamo assaggiato i piatti della cucina locale e appezzato l’accoglienza greca. Un viaggio inedito che vale la pena fare!!!
