“Simply amazing, without fault.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

Recommended by a lovely lady at the reception of our hotel, who rung up Mr Andreas (the owner) and checked the opening times. We were provided with his contact details in case we got lost and hired a car the next day.

This visit was one of the highlights of my time in Cyprus, we were the only two visitors to the winery at the time, Mr Andreas and his daughter-in-law made us feel completely at home (even giving my girlfriend his jacket as it was cold inside). We had an excellent wine tasting accompanied with a tour and explanation of the history of the vineyard, followed finally by traditional Cyprian coffee in the cafe.

The hospitality was incredible and the wine amazing, my only regret is only being able to fit 6 bottles in my luggage back to England. I will most certainly be visiting again when I make it back to Cyprus, and provided our reps and several other couples at the hotel with a recommendation, details and a map so they could find the vineyard themselves.

Oh and if you go there also try the Soutzoukkos (almonds dipped in sweet grape jelly) - I bought some back and they didn't last long!

“This is the best Cyprus has to offer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

We have visited this amazing winery in Panayia several times! Mr Andreas, a visionary and a pioneer in creating excellent wines exclusively from indigenous varieties, has created a superb modern winery but with tradition in mind, located in the beautiful surroundings of Panayia. The hospitality of Mr Andreas, his wife and their daughter in law Maria is impeccable. They will invite you to their family table for lunch or they will treat you to whatever is in season. But what is even more amazing are the wines made only with native varieties of the island produced in the private vineyards of the winery. Well structured wines with character and modestly priced. My favourite is the Barba Yiannis made from 100% maratheftiko, the most interesting, in my opinion red variety of Cyprus. Definitely worth a visit!!!

“Modern winery, fine wines and more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Went there as part of an organised excursion. We met the friendly and honest owners and their family. Fireplace was waiting for us, nice atmosphere as it was cold outside. Were treated to local produce (local tea/coffee, soussiouko, palouze) and of course we tried several of the wines they make while the owner was describing their work at the winery, the wines they make and also invited our questions about wine in general. They also took us on a short tour of the winery facilities. Very informative, the guy seems honest and visionary about Cypriot wine made from Cypriot varieties which is good. I realize it’s all part of the excursion and good marketing for them but we still appreciated it. Did I say they make great wine? Well, they do,they make 4 white ones, 2 red and 1 rose, but they have a red wine which we particularly liked, great aroma and amazing taste at a reasonable price. We bought 2 bottles to take home with us, others bought many more!

“You won't want to leave!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

What will capture you immediately at this place is its people! Mr Andreas and his family really make you feel like one of their own and you can tell immediately for their passion for wine making. We visited this place for a tour and wine tasting session, followed by meze lunch. Needless to say all were excellent. Among their several wine varieties you will definitely find one you will love.
We visited this place as a group of around thirty people and it could have been a tricky business, but every communication with them was perfect and when we were there they handled us perfectly, even accompanying us to the nearby nature trails.
It's a perfect place to spent a day with beautiful nature, views, wine and people around you! Finishing the day with a coffee in front of he fireplace, you will be sad to leave!!
