The Winery

The winery is located at Kyperounda, in the Pitsilia area of the Troodos range, 75 km from Nicosia and 50 km from Limassol.  At an altitude of 1140 m, it prides itself as sitting on the highest point than any other winery in Europe.  It was setup in the late 1990s by a few local grape producers and in the year 2000, Photos Photiades Distributors Ltd joined as a major shareholder to be followed soon by the famous Greek wine maker Boutaris. Today the company is owned by more than 40 shareholders with control and management placed in the hands of the Photiades Group and the Greek wine maker, Boutaris. Their expertise combines the knowledge in beverage distribution and the art of wine making. This blends with the support of a most capable and talented young oenologist, Mr Minas Mina, a formula that has succeeded in delivering wines of the highest quality.

 

Situated in this idyllic setting and designed to the specifications of experienced winemakers, the winery is built on three levels in order to take advantage of gravity to move the grape juice in the gentlest possible way. The winery’s underground cellar holds two hundred and fifty 225lt oak barrels, in which the wine of Kyperounda matures and develops character. The production capacity of the winery is about 200,000 bottles.

 

 

The vineyards

The winery runs its own vineyards of 4 hectares recently planted with Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes. Additionally, it buys grapes from local producers as well as from vine growers of Kilani and as far as the Paphos region. The Kyperounda vineyards have always been famous for their superior quality. The privately owned vineyards are located at an altitude of 1,400m and are the highest in Europe. The sandy clay soil, the steeply sloping terrain and the high altitude shape a perfect environment for the production of superb wine grapes. The low yields and favorable mild temperatures, which are unique to the region, produce perfectly ripened grapes of the highest quality.

 

 

The wines

The winery’s first wines were bottled in 2003 and their appearance on the local wine market was welcomed wth enthusiasm. The four labels of this modern winery, two for white and two for red wines are rated highly among the wine lovers of Cyprus. They include a very good Chardonnay, an exceptional wine from the indigenous Xynisteri grape (Petritis), and a Cabernet Sauvignon of a density, structure and balance that effortlessly place it at the top of Cyprus reds.

 

 

The markets

Photos Photiades Distributors Ltd is responsible for the distribution of the wines into the local market, achieving a high penetration in all types of retail outlets.   The company also exports to Switzerland, the US market and is keen to develop new trading relationships in the international quality wine market.
