Best of: Wines of Cyprus, -18% off until Friday!*



"The new trends worldwide favor indigenous varieties, and the quality of Cypriot wines is constantly improving (Gold in the Decanter for Xynisteri and Promara in 2016 and 2017), together with the remarkable group of Cypriot Sommeliers and the millions of tourists who visit the island, it seems that the future is on their side."
Yiannis Karakasis MW on Cypriot Wines


The cliché: Many people know Cypriot wine through its sweet Commandaria, the oldest wine in the world which continues to be produced. But what is not known widely is that Cyprus is one of the upcoming regions in the world for dry wines as well. 

The secret: Impressive vineyards that reach 1.500 meters of altitude, old vineyards trained as bush vines that are own rooted as well are responsible for wine gems, from varieties, such as Xynisteri and Maratheftiko.

Why try it: All these explain our enthusiasm and mood to offer you something really special and rare to try. Something you can find right now exclusively in Greece and Grapes.
