Oenophiles will love the variety of these interesting wineries

Explore the mountainous side of Cyprus and plan your wine trip around awarded wineries. Don’t forget to try Commandaria, the famous dessert wine made from over-ripened Xinisteri grapes and red Mavro, picked and left to shrivel and sweeten in the sun before being crushed. Richard the Lionheart served it at his wedding and is said to have declared it the 'wine of kings and the king of wines'. It is officially the oldest named wine in the world. You can try it in one of the fourteen villages that produce it in Limassol.
