1st Cyprus Wine Competition of a new Era.

Open Doors to fill the gap.

Limassol Municipality steps forward in support of the 1st Cyprus Wine Competition of a new Era.

The Cyprus Winemaker Association receives support to re-establish the annual judging executed by the now defunct Cyprus Wine Products council.

An enormous gap to fill, which all entities involved will have to manage with the help of Cyprus Enologists  the Cyprus Association of Sommeliers whose main objectives will be to return part of the credibility lost, not so much in the wines but in a competition which had higher aims.

The  3 day competition to be held in Limassol from the 4th until the 7th of June and extended awards will rank according to Grand Gold, Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals. Special awards will be given also to the wine categories such as  Xynisteri, Maratheftiko and a Commandaria. The official announcement of the results and the presentation of diplomas will be held in Limassol, in a special event to award the late afternoon on Saturday June 7, 2014 at the Cultural Center Panos Solomonides

And the results are in…..Thessaloniki International Wine competition, a preferred competition where some of the Cyprus Wines get judged has anticipated it’s results before annual gala event.

Safe to say that this year’s edition holds a surprise and very well earned recognition to Vlassides Winery, standing out among other outstanding participants such as Sodap, Ayia Mavri, Kolios, Vardalis, K&K Vasilikon, and Zambartas.

Rethinking Wine Collaborations - an invitation to opening new doors

Cyprus is home to commandaria — the oldest named wine in the world

Lefteris Mohianakis, Winemaker - Anama Wine:

I think that historians can tell stories and can give you an idea about the past, but senses cannot be transmitted through history. So we cannot understand how an ancient nama smelled or tasted.

The best thing we can do is to give the vine the opportunity to choose for itself what kind of product it wants to create. Those vines have been there for 150 years … I am just trying to give the vines the opportunity to express themselves through my wine.

Wine on Campus #Maratheftiko on stage in Frankfurt -
Maratheftiko - the grape that embodies the character and soul of winemaking in Cyprus - hard, honest and Satisfying.

An honor for Maratheftiko.

Akis Zambartas fait une mise au point avec Benoit Gaboriaud sur les points forts de Chypre.

"Le vignoble chypriote est le seul en Europe qui n’a pas de phylloxéra. Il y en a trois dans le monde, ils commencent tous par ch : Chine, Chili et Chypre. On a une viticulture ininterrompu depuis 6 500 ans. On a aussi des cépages autochtones. Donc pas de phylloxéra, cépage autochtone planté sur leurs propres racines, c’est ce qui donne l’intérêt à Chypre."
