Owner description: The winery is situated just outside Pano Panayia village, in the mountainous area of Paphos district in an altitude of about 850 m above sea level,surrounded from Paphos forest. We produce our wines from the indigenous grape varieties Xynisteri, Spourtiko , Promara (whites) and Ntopio Mavro, Maratheftiko and Yiannoudi(reds) which are cultivated in the best viticultural area of Cyprus, the Vouni Panayia area. Visitors coming to the winery can experience the traditional Cypriot hospitality; taste our wines, take a tour of the winery, watch the procedure of producing the wine and traditional products which are produced from the grape like soutzioukkos and zivania.The restaurant is open after reservation for lunch (seasonal traditional cuisine)

I am in agreement with all other previous reviews! After spotting Vouni Panayia Winery on the Lonely Planet Guide we decided to travel inland to try it out! We were blown away by our experience here! The wines were lovely and hospitality was superb! Andreas opened our eyes to look at a good wine as a work of art! I will never buy a cheap bottle of wine from a supermarket again. It was a Saturday and their restaurant was closed, we hadn't had our lunch yet and they asked us to join their family lunch! Andreas' wife cooked the best traditional meal we had through-out our holiday in Cyprus.
We only purchased 6 bottles of wine (all we could manage to bring home with us) and were over whelmed by their generosity when they insisted we accept two additional complimentary bottles and a container of the most delicious pure sweet grape juice. We will return :)

Located about 1000m up in a quite spot this may seem off the beaten track but we have visited two years running and it is well worth the effort. Every year the owner experiments with some new wines and tastes and he has a nose and pallet for great results.

We came away with just 8 bottles this year - lucky we are in Cyprus for 3 weeks to drink it! Oh, and of course a small bottle of Schnapps because the evenings can get chilly in mid October.

The wine is great value and well worth trying - you will get to try all brands before being left un-pressurised to decide if you want to buy something.

If you can't be bothered to visit then just ask for their wines in quality restaurants like Molos in Latchi and Arsinoe in Polis

If you want to have lunch then I am afraid you will have to call them the day before and book

Yamas!!

After trying a bottle of Alina at a restaurant nearby we decided to make the trip to the winery on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The winery itself is a stylishly designed building overlooking the hills of the area. We sat down, tried all the wines and none of them disappointed.

After the tasting, we bought a few bottles and then sat outside to enjoy the view. We were treated to some Cyprus coffee and fresh fruit grown on the estate. Not to mention the staff are extremely welcoming.

We were taken to this winery by our son-in-law from his home in Paphos about an hour away. The journey was certainly worth it as we were treated like one of the family; even being given a beautiful rose on arrival!
The wines here are excellent and the surroundings and views are splendid. We only wish that we had been able to visit before so we could have fit in a second trip before the end of our holiday!
Thanks once again.

Called at this winery after a trip to Kykkos Monastery as we had passed it a few times before. As soon as we arrived (my wife and I, plus 22 year old daughter) we were welcomed by two of the nicest people you could wish to meet. We then proceeded to taste the wines and we were not disappointed. Reds and whites both equally great and we purchased a case. We then asked if we could buy a glass each of our favourite (only 2 Euros each), and sat out in the covered area to enjoy the fabulous view. We were then given some Halloumi cheese, followed by some home-grown figs, then a traditional Cyprus dessert and a glass of water, all for free! When asked if we would like another glass of wine each, we asked for two (water for the driver), but when we tried to pay, we were told "no, it's our hospitality". Now I'm not saying this will happen every time and we wouldn't go there in the hope of a "freeby", but I can say that the wine is just about the finest on the island (try the Alina dry; it's just like Chablis) and the young couple we met could not do enough for us, they are truly wonderful.
We intend to return again this week and buy more of their bottled nectar to store for the next time we come out!
