Wine Tours in Cyprus

The island of Cyprus


Cyprus

Cyprus is the gateway to eastern Mediterranean culture and three gorgeous nearby continents. The area is known for its sun soaked beaches, breathtaking scenery, exquisite dining and of course, its wine. Oenophiles (wine enthusiasts) have known about the secret pleasures of the Mediterranean coast for a very long time. Boasting some of the worlds oldest wineries from Sicily to Athens and Corsica, the bouquets found here are unlikely to be seen in any shops or restaurants outside of the regions from which they originate.

The local countries maintain exclusive rights to their signature flavors and bottle in limited supplies. As a consequence the only to way to experience each unique delicacy is to visit the homes of the vineyards where their distinct flavors originate. One particularly adored and coveted location for sampling the fine fare the old world has to offer is the island of Cyprus. Specifically Limassol region.

Following is a guide to some of the can’t miss wineries you should definitely visit on your vacation.

Lambouri Winery

Lambouri is one of the highest vineyards in Cyprus, sitting atop the gorgeous Troodos mountain at 1128 meters (3700 feet) above sea level. They are also the only winery that produces one of the world’s oldest variations, Yain Kafrisin. They produce a superb range of international award winning flavors from chardonnays to Cabernets, organics and their famous Maratheftiko.

Shoufas Winery


Shoufas Winery

Shoufas Winery is a family owned traditional establishment handed down through generations of innovation and constant expansion. They specialize in Maratheftiko and Cabernet Sauvignon. Located deep in the countryside, thirty minutes from Paphos in the village of Kilinia, Shoufas is remote, rustic (despite recent remodels) and surrounded by vineyards. Today, much as in the past, produce from the winery is still largely consumed locally and contained to the island.

Zambartas

Nestled in the village of Agios Amvrosios on the southern slope of the Troodos mountains, Zambartas resides in the heart of the Cyprus wine country in the region of Krasochoria Lemesou. The internationally famed courtesy and hospitality of locals becomes immediately evident as Zambartas serves it’s elegant Xynisteri to groups of up to 30.

Where To Find Wine In Cyprus

One of the greatest parts about visiting Cyprus is that you don’t have to venture too far inland to get a taste of all the fine varieties available. There are several fine dining options serving up the best of the local palate within walking distance of the island's renowned beaches. The Royal Apollonia Hotel located within a stones throw of the gorgeous azure waters of the Mediterranean, has several dining options on site that routinely serve the regions finest choices from all of the local wineries. The Soho Wine Bar in Limassol is a New York inspired local favorite offering a smaller, targeted menu but also serving some of the best local food delights for just the right pairing.
