LIMASSOL OMODOS – OENOYI WINERY
The Troodos is the largest mountain range in Cyprus, high above the popular beaches and busy resorts.
And here on these tranquil and sun-kissed slopes sits the village of Omodos, a popular destination for those who enjoy wine, traditional arts and crafts, walking through streets little changed by time and wonderful views.
This full bodied tour is an enriching experience for anyone, even more so if you love wine. The setting is incredible and you will return home with memories to treasure.
Omodos has a long wine making history. It is inextricably linked to the island’s long history and tradition of the product. The two are synonymous.
The famous True Cross Timios Stavros Monastery, with its numerous myths and legends is a major attraction at Omodos too.
After spending time in the village we visit the Ktima Vassiliades Oenou Yi (or Land of Wine) to taste a full range of superb local wines, including Zivania and Commandaria.
The winery spectacularly lies between the peaks of the Troodos and facing the magnificent Mount Olympus.
The beautiful vineyards are laid out in amphitheatre style in the most stunning of locations.
The wine is produced with years of love, devotion and dedication something you can feel when you are there and taste in the produce.
The winery was founded in 2017, by lawyer and winemaker Christodoulos G. Vassiliades.
It is a new venture in viticulture and wine production but brings with it centuries of wine tradition.
For wine lovers this is a fascinating and exceptional few hours. For everyone it is an opportunity to replenish to soul in the peace of the Troodos.
