From visiting many wineries locally & abroad, this was just embarrassing. Price: €4 each. Sunday afternoon, all the chairs are on the tables, as if closing. Staff milling around, no acknowledgment, no greeting, no service. Design: We ask to do wine tasting and instead of it being conducted in the main room with brighter light, views, fresh air and more ambience, we are sent into a small, depressing back room with antique random objects (I assume for design but not worth the effort) mixed with old 1991 computers and electrical equipment?! Setting: Wines on a table with a plate of soutzoukos. Alexia (the owner) started to pour the first. I asked if we could sit down to enjoy...not much enthusiasm there from Alexia and a pause of frustration. Tasting: In our opinion, the first wine was like bland watery vinegar. So bad, that for the FIRST time in my life I couldn't take the second sip and poured into the bucket. Heartbreaking in my eyes(!) Timing: We felt rushed. Despite the fact only a tiny amount was poured, she was hovering a bit, waiting for the next bottle, watching my second & last sip, every time. Even if the wines were good, I could not enjoy properly. I did like the Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, which was really smooth and soft with hints of creamy vanilla and white chocolate. Knowledge: There was very basic info: the grape variety, which was clearly stated on the bottles. I tried to get more out of her by asking what foods would suit, whereby she would blandly answer "All foods" or "Meat" I wonder if she was terribly bored that day?! We knew by the first wine we were in for a bit of a bumpy ride, but we tried to be polite and endure. The graphic design, packaging and style reflected the entire experience: An Old Fashioned Bore. It kills me to see that current generations sit on these pieces of land, with awesome history and so many opportunities to represent Cyprus in a positive, more refined way! Yet they hold onto a stale business model that entices God knows who and the whole place is a waste. A real shame. We will never go back. P.s. Out the window of that attic-like shed was a view of a junk yard. Old broken equipment, some looked burnt. Really awful to look at for a million reasons! Why can't they simply clean up responsibly or dispose of rubbish where no paying customers can see.

We were in Cyprus visiting family and this trip was arranged by my brother and his wife. The owners were great hosts and the tour of the winery was very informative. In fact after all these years, I now know that red wine is made from the pigment in the grape skin during fermentation rather than the juice itself. The food served on the day was delicious and as good as my mother’s Greek food which is really saying something! And the wine was great too! Excellent day out.

As we walked in, Alexia (owner), offered to try some wine (2euro per person). Wine was ok, but we expected a bit more, like an excursion or perhaps someone to tell us about the winery... . So we asked to have look around. An older gentleman downstairs was busy with his family bottling a batch of wine. He did not speak english, but managed to give us a small tour. Wines were ok, so we bought 10 bottles and left. Will I go back? Most probably will not, unless I\m passing by. There are many nicer in terms of scenery and views and wine as well, wineries around Cyprus, which deserve a trip. Mixed feeling as a result rehearing this winery, on one side the wine is good, on the other, I expected more interest in us from the staff and more hospitality for which Cyprus is famous for.

We arrived at this winery as part of the Larnaca municipality free winter tour series. As to be expected, the tours bring you to places where you are expected to purchase goods, and as also might be expected, at a winery, you are expected to purchase wine. Taking all this into account, this was still a very pleasant visit. This is a smallish winery, so there isn't much to see in terms of its equipment -- and February is definitely not wine making season. But still, the guide was friendly, and we did get to see and experience the wonderful aroma of the production of the famous Cypriot sweet called "soutzoukos" - made from grape juice and nuts. We also enjoyed wine tasting in a large, well lit hall, and experienced eating soutzoukos (we bought some to take home -- and they are delicious). Outside there is a nice view of the area and the vineyard. This is particularly nice in the winter, when all is green and lush. Overall, a very pleasant place to stop and spend some time.
