Insatiable appetite for creating wines with character
A heritage of mountain viticulture, the steep slopes of Arames mountain and proximity of the river Kryos is where the new project of Vlassides Winery has been taking shape in the last decade. The abounding vineyards are have a back drop to the preserved Kilani village with its typical traditional folk architecture of the wine-producing villages, the Karasochoria.
The Vlassides winery is a culmination of a path set out to improving winemaking in Cyprus in general. Through patient replantings and participation as wine consultant to neighboring wineries, which have led to the projection of his own state of the art winery. Focussed on advanced winemaking, Vlassides has achieved a balanced act of experimentation, pushing the limits of local varieties with exciting trials, as well as consolidating an appetite for signature wines with character.
