An article about Cyprus wines in the respected wine magazine Vinum in Switzerland by Rudolf Trefzer. ( In German)
We were delighted to find out that our Rose 2016 received a Bronze Medal at the first edition of the International Rose Championship 2017, held under the auspices of Rose expert Elizabeth Gabay MW.
With more than 180 samples entered from varied countries such as France, Australia, Spain, Italy and Israel, we are very happy that our Rose was one of the 50 wines that got awarded a medal. Rated with over 84 points, it shows that it can compete with rose wines from all over the world and be judged among the top!

We are delighted to see that our wines performed well again in this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards! We are especially excited that our Shiraz-Lefkada 2013 received 91 points; the patience to age this wine a bit longer in our cellar was rewarded.
Our 2017 competition results are as follows:
Shiraz- Lefkada 2013 – Silver – 91 Points
Xynisteri 2016 – Bronze – 88 Points
Rose 2016 – Bronze – 87 Points
