Bound to local terroir, epitome of mountain viticulture in Cyprus
Mountain viticulture above the Troodos mountains, sets the scene for a unique appreciation of terroir in Pafos region of Cyprus. Ungrafted indigenous vines find in the altitude climate a unique environment to grow where traditional Mavro grapes have given way to more appreciated grapes of Xynisteri, Maratheftiko and Yiannoudi.
It’s a love for nature and devotion to Vouni Panayia vines that led a visionary Kyriakides to project in the remote region of Vouni Panayia, the first winery that would become, and remain, a reference for integrated winemaking and wine tourism as a singular place for generations to come. A vision that today not only thrives but has also past the generational succession as much of the winemaking lies in the capable hands of internationally schooled enologists.
