Legend has it that earliest wine making can be tracked to 7000BC in China. Wine in the modern form is more believed to be originated from the Mediterranean region around 5000-6000BC. Archaeological evidences were discovered in Georgia, and Italy.
In fact, the earliest wine making in Cyprus can be traced to more than 5500 years ago, even earlier than that in Greece.
The uniqueness we wish to bring to you is the characteristics of our wines.

Our wine is certainly not the first wine you have drunk. But we bring to you something different that you would not mind to give it a try.
Our wines are sourced exclusively from Cyprus – the island country stands in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, not far from France, Italy and Greece. While these countries are best known wine regions and very much viewed as the ‘standard of old world wines’, Cyprus wine is a hidden gem among the shining diamonds - To be more specific: a rare precious gem.
Cyprus is one of the places where earliest wine making was known - probably earlier than its better known neighbours.
Cyprus wines are brewed mostly by families scattered in the hills across the island.
