Renowned wine villages in an effortless journey through beautiful scenery. A stronghold of tradiontal wine making with an excellent choice of local wines.

 

Nowhere else in Cyprus is such a great presence of wineries as in these wine growing villages of Lemesos (Limassol) district, known locally as Krasochoria, the Wine Villages. In Omodos and Koilani alone there are 10 such wineries. The route is outstanding, not resembling any other. A dry climate combined with a unique geology is responsible for some excellent wines, made mostly from the local grape varieties Xynisteri and Mavro and also from some imported ones, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro, Grenache and Syrah. Make sure you have enough time at your dispocal to taste what this route and its special wines have to offer. Visit wonderfully unspoilt villages such as Omodos, Vasa, Koilani, Lofou and Vouni with their traditional architecture, cobblestoned narrow passages cheerfull sourroundings, many of which host some for the best tavernas in Cyprus.
