The island of Viniculture
Cyprus, the island of viniculture! Wine making is one of the oldest activities on the island dating back 6,000 years to 3,500 B.C., and a tradition well-kept in various areas of the island until nowadays. Families often spanning two or three generations, would come together for the grape harvest season every September to collect the grapes from the vineyards and produce wine for their households. Nowadays, families in villages all across Cyprus have developed the art of viniculture and produce varieties of exceptional cypriot wines.
There are six wine routes which can be found on the island like the ‘Krassochoria’ or ‘wine villages’ route, the Laona – Akamas, the Vouni Panagias – Ambelitis , the Diarizos Valley, Pitsillia and the Kommandaria Wine Route that offer unique views of the charming village sceneries with their traditional architecture and cobblestone houses and paths!
