WINE VILLAGES OF CYPRUS:

Cyprus is one of the oldest wine-producing countries in the world. According to archaeological research, it has been producing wine for at least the last 5500 years. During the Roman period, wine was an integral part of the island and played a decisive and important role. So at least they confirm the mosaics and amphoras in the city of Pafos.

The wine of Cyprus was one of the most important items used at the worship ceremonies that were held in honor of the goddess Aphrodite. It was a very delicious and a glass of sweet wine. The "Cypriot Nama", as Euripides called it in the 12th century, was renamed "Commandaria". Its name comes from its production area, located to the west of Limassol, which was the base of the Knights Templar.

In most wine villages, most of the residents have as their main occupation viticulture and winemaking, as the art of wine in Cyprus is more than a way of life, it is an inherent passion with roots that go even deeper than the roots of the vines of the Mediterranean. In these villages, there are several small and family wineries that produce the delicious wine of Cyprus.

The visitor can see there, the most traditional ways of wine growing from generation to generation can be guided in the old presses and museums that are maintained and operated as well as taste different kinds of wines. The visitor can also visit dozens of modern wineries.

Cyprus currently has 55 wineries, of which 90% are family-owned. One of these is the Makkas Winery, which is a great opportunity to visit with your friends or family and try the true taste of Cypriot wine.
