The winery

The Yiaskouris brothers, Christos and Doros, are the mainstay of the winery that bears their family name. The two brothers, together with Georgia, Christos's wife, who has a postgraduate degree in Chemistry, make up a dynamic trio, with Christos, a US university graduate in Electrical Engineering, faultlessly operating the mechanical and electrical equipment, and Doros, also a US university graduate in Business Management, looking after the economics of the business.

Yiaskouris winery is found in the village of Pachna, the largest village in the "Krasohoria" (wine villages) region, 35 km from Limassol and 120 km from Nicosia.† Winemaking has been a family business for nearly a century and years 1982 and 1997 are milestone periods for the winery.† In 1982 modern technology was incorporated in winemaking and in 1997 the operations moved from the small family house unit to the current modern building, positioned in the heart of the vineyards and capable of producing around 130.000 bottles annually. A further expansion plan is under way† that includes the creation of elegant† wine tasting facilities with a cheese and wine room and extra space for a small museum that will present the traditional winemaking practices of the region.

The vines

Apart from owning one of the island's perfectly equipped wineries, which boasts a vacuum press, stainless steel vats, underground cellars etc., the Yiaskouris brothers have one of the largest vineyards owned by small regional wineries. A total area of 10 hectares of grapevines provides the winery with 80% of its raw material offering an important competitive advantage. It is well known among people who are systematically involved in matters of Cyprus wine that the Yiaskouris brothers are among those few who, right from the start, realised that, unless a winery had its own vineyards, it would be impossible to produce high quality wine that would not vary - significantly - from year to year. It is not surprising that the Yiaskouris brothers, though they have expanded their ownership of vineyards, are still striving to grow more vine-plants in the Pahna region, which is ideal for vine growing.† The balance of grape supplies is bought from partner grape growers in the nearby village of Omodos and Kathikas.†

Wines

The leading label is a red, dry wine made from a blend of Carignan, Grenache blended†in with local Mavro. White dry xynisteri is another important wine. What distinguishes however this winery from others is that extra dedication to the Shiraz variety and the experience developed over time in working with this variety. The Yiaskouris brothers are among the first Cypriot winemakers who gave serious attention to Shiraz, making the variety known to the wider public and revealing the immense potential of this multidynamic grape which has adapted beautifully to the xerothermic climate of the island.

Marketing

The company distributes its products to the catering sector, in a number of hotels, taverns and restaurants and in selected supermarket chains and wine shops.† Small exports are destined to the US market and more specifically to New York.
