Nemea

41km to the northwest of Corinth is Nemea, which is currently known as one of the major wine producing areas in Greece. Nemea is known in mythology due to the victory of Hercules over a terrible lion that terrified the people in the area. Nemea started once the vine harvest was over and the crops were distributed. It included races and initation rituals respected nationwide in the honour of the goddess Nemesis, who was the protectress of this land. One of the high-level initation rituals was the ''purification fastening'', both biological and spiritual, which required the consumption of grapes for a whole month.
