Its primary industry is agriculture and it is the hub for several small villages circling it, including Koutsi, Petri, and Leriza. Nemea is famous for its many wines grown on the plains that surround it. It is also home to DK Distributors, one of the largest distribution companies in Eastern Europe.
Located next to the new town of Nemea, appx. 30 kilometers from Corinth, the appellation of Nemea is the most important red wine AOC of southern Greece and arguably of all of Greece. In Nemea, the indigenous Greek Agiorgitiko grape is used and produces wines famous for their deep red color, complex aroma and long, velvety palate.
