Location: Limassol, Cyprus
Recently there has been a trend in Cyprus towards planting native Cypriot grapes once again. Indigenous grapes like Xynisteri have spent hundreds - if not thousands - of years adapting to the hot and dry conditions and now form the basis of premium wine production in Cyprus.
Tsiakkas Winery is located in Pelendri village in Limassol region. Costas Tsiakkas established the winery in 1988 which he runs with his wife Maria. They own 5 hectares of fantastic mountainous vineyards which are located at an altitude of 1000-1400m.
Showered by the warm Cyprus sun, and cooled by the Troodos forest breezes, the Pitsilia Vines are producing excellent varieties of grapes, highly suitable for wine production. It is for this reason that Pitsilia is the first vine producing area to be granted the permission for producing quality wines bearing the classification of appellation of origin.
