The winery

Kolios Winewry at the village of Statos-Ayios Fotios, Pafos is certainly a winery that has been built with respect towards the tradition of the region. Beautifully built out of local stone, this imposing winery invitingly comes into view as you drive round a wide bend on the road that leads to the Holy Monastery of Chrysorroyiatissa and the village of PanayiaThis is a large family business, with Marios Kolios being the engine behind the venture.  Family tradition led to the modern era effort, which began in 1999 with the construction of a modern winery and an initial production of 70,000 bottles of wine which today is approaching 400,000 bottles. 

 

The owner of this wine-producing complex is not a widely-travelled person nor particularly experienced in winemaking or in the wine business. He will grudgingly go to town unless it is absolutely necessary. He is a typical countryside man who loves nature and the peace and quiet of his village. He has not visited many wineries nor has he been to numerous wine-cellars in foreign countries. Yet he appears to have a natural tendency towards what is traditional, clean and beautiful. This is evidenced by what he has done in his village Statos which boasts one of the few wineries on the island offering the complete range of services. Besides producing quality wine, the winery runs a spacious restaurant in an attractive setting that serves delicious food and a retail shop where one can buy besides wine, glasses, corkscrews, books and other interesting wine accessories. The building that houses the visitors tasting area, the actual processing plant and the basement cellar area have been designed to make the most of the space available. At the same time visitors are given the chance to view the production site  along with a glass in hand, looking out the large picture windows in the tasting and dining room. The latter is in full use all year round, as groups of no less than ten people can phone up, and book to arrive for a home cooked lunch, with all the house wine they can drink.

 

 

The vineyards

The family vineyards cover an area of 10 hectares and are located close to the winery commanding a view of the whole Ezousa valley.  Besides using grapes from the family owned vineyards, Kolios also procures grapes from other growers with whom they hold long standing business relations to the point that Mr Kolios closely monitors their cultivation practises.

 

 

Wines

The range of wines produced by Kolios Winery includes eight very interesting labels. The overall production exceeds 330,000 bottles, a capacity that ranks the winery as second largest among the regional wineries – not counting, of course, Olympus, Kamanterena and Ktima KEO which belong to the wine industries of ETKO, SODAP and KEO respectively. Starting with the “Persefoni”, this white wine is made from xynisteri grapes that have been  planted by the family ancestors at the mountain peaks at the highest village of Paphos, Statos – Ayios Fotios. The Kolios Maratheftiko red is made from the indigenous variety grown at the family vineyards. The Kolios Rose dry and medium sweet are made from the traditional Cypriot grape variety “Mavro” and matured at low temperatures.    Lastly, the Shiraz is a European grape variety that has been perfectly adapted to the Cyprus climatic conditions. Production of this superb wine is limited and does not exceed 3000 bottles per year.

 

 

Marketing

The company has its own distribution network with a fleet of 5 vehicles and supplies restaurants, hotels, supermarket chains, as well as wine shops.  It exports small quantities of wine to Britain and Switzerland
