We have visited quite a few times and taken friends and family who have stayed with us and always been made very welcome. We have been impressed with the talk and tour - if you want to watch the bottling, you need to check before going if wine is being bottled on the day you plan to visit. The lunch is very good, it has varied each time we have visited and should be booked prior to visiting - go with an empty stomach. The views are wonderful from the dining room. It is advisable to take something warmer to wear being as you will be at quite a high altitude unless it is summer. Our favourite wines are Status 99 and Persefoni wines, but that is our personal choice. The wines can be purchased from the winery or their butchers shop Kolios butchery on the Polis road, the prices are the same at either. Why not also visit a monastery about 1 mile along the road, turning left out of the winery. Another place with amazing views and worth stopping at. Well worth a visit.

We were following the Paphos wine tour no: 2 .We went on spec, it's early December so not many tourists about, prepared to find it closed. Was delighted to find it wasn't. We were taken into the restaurant for the tasting, wow - what a view! A fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding countryside and vineyards. It was also spotlessly clean. For us it's all about the wine and we weren't disappointed.

We were handed a summary of the wines produced and we choose to taste a medium white (Persefone), the medium dry rose (Cornetto) and 2 reds, Martheftiko and the Cabernet Sauvignon.

We had just left a tasting at a winery up the road, where we had been offered some very disappointing wine, this however, was a revelation! The white was delicious, plenty of character and a good body, similar to a German white, with it's floral notes, very enjoyable, the rose was delicious, again full bodied but light and refreshing at the same time.

The Martheftiko is a local grape variety, it's method of production gives it the most amazing colour, a deep red almost purple.It has an amazing oakey flavour, prefect for meat dishes.

We then had the Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a robust but smooth wine, again perfect for those big meaty dishes, thoroughly enjoyable.

We took away a couple of bottles of each for less than 50 Euros, for the quality of wine, this is a bargain. I was so pleased to find some decent local wine and especially the one made with the indigenous grape variety.

This winery produces wine made the traditional way but in the modern style. It has won loads of awards, deservedly so in my opinion and I shall be going back to taste some of the wines I didn't taste this time and arrange to have a meal at the same time. Can't wait!

Despite the fact it was harvest time for the grapes the wine tour only consisted of a quick talk on the local soil conditions and then a visit to the cellar, we did not see how the grapes were processed etc. The wine tasting was okay but no one explained about the wines however the meze was good. Overall not to bad as the whole experience was only 20 euros per head.

We were herded in and out like cattle, you got a thimble full of wine to taste. I bought a bottle of wine, and seen the same wine cheaper in a supermarket!
