Katakolon / Olympia Shore Excursion - This private shore trip enjoys a winery tour and tasting with local snacks at the Mercouri Winery followed by free time on Kourouta Beach where you can enjoy the sea, or if you prefer, have time for shopping in the village.

After meeting your guide you enjoy a pleasant drive through the scenic countryside of the Peloponnese. After passing typical quaint villages you arrive at the estate of one of the oldest families in the area. The owners happily greet their guests in a warm and friendly manner serving coffee and soft drinks before setting out on a guided tour of the vast grounds surrounding their manor.

The estate has been in the hands of the present owners for four generations. Since the early days the family has been active in producing fragrant wines by cultivating cuttings imported from Italy, namely the Refosco grape. The tour shows how, over time, the winery has blended a combination of old and modern wine techniques and equipment to produce wines that have successfully matured to reach exportation standards.

Not only are you shown the cellars and the traditional family museum you will also have the opportunity to visit the forest and vineyards. The border of the estate reaches a vantage point which overlooks the sea and the island of Zakinthos is visible.

Upon returning to the main building of the manor, you have the opportunity to sample the wines, local cheeses and a variety of snacks from the small but eloquent buffet under the cooling pine trees.

Next you will proceed to Kourouta beach for swimming, lunch or any other activity you wish. The large sandy beach is in a populated area and stretches the length of 12 miles and has a breadth of about 120 feet. The vegetation of the area consists mainly of deciduous trees and shrubs. After your visit to Kourouta beach you will return to the pier in Katakolon.
