All eyes on the Xyn

TheXyn - Cyprus Xynisteri Grape

All eyes on that Xynisteri grape

Unquestionably a health check of Cyprus Vineyards.

As a sign of the times where sustainable agriculture is but a symptom, it is the fruit focussed wineries that have placed all their attention on indigenous grapes. The good health of Xynisteri is but the barometer reflecting the good health of the sector.

The bustling of crates in the wee mornings is testimonial to busy during harvest season. While incoming grapes from growers keep flowing with Xynisteri, some of the hand picked crates await on landing docks for inspection prior to crushing.
Soon, a sea of grapes have accumulated in the reception area. Thankfully shaded, the piles of crates overflow with freshly cut fruit.
