Nemea is famous for its wines and for one of the twelve labours of Heracles: killing the Nemean lion and to bring back its skin to king Euystheus. Using a list, Heracles choked the lion to death. When he returned to the King, with the pelt, the king gave Hercules the lion’s invincible pelt to wear around. However, he said “the tasks will be getting harder.” 

Some of the wines in the region refer to the blood of the lion.
