Akis – in memorian

Akis Zambartas, our father and father in law, was the founder of Zambartas Wineries in 2006 and a leading authority on Cyprus wines for many years. After a long career in the wine business, he decided to follow his dream and build his own boutique winery. Within a few years, with enormous energy and passion, he built the winery and established the brand. He remained active until 2014, when the winery and winemaking were taken over by Marcos. We are very grateful for the foundations of the family winery that Akis has laid for us and we will always remember his sheer love and passion for wine and especially the Cyprus grape varieties. Akis made a great contribution to the Cyprus wine history with his project to re-discover Cyprus indigenous grape varieties in years’ long pioneering research. Please read more about this project here
