    A Unique tour in the wine villages of Limassol , also known as 'Krasochoria’ -‘wine villages’.

    Their soil is ideal for several vine varieties. There are located on sea-made rocks called sedimentary rocks mainly of marls and chalks. No wonder locals can find fossils while cultivating their vineyards.

    Our first stop is in the beautiful village of Omodos, one of the largest wine producing villages!

    ...A meeting point for Dionysianthiasus, the followers of the Greek God of the grape harvest and winemaking, who were taught the art of wine-making!

    At an altitude reaching 800 and 1060 metres , the vineyards of “Oenou Yi”, cultivates around 1,000 hectares of private land, sealing the wine heritage of Omodos.

    The grapes are of excellent quality, with harmonious aromas and rich flavours, dating back from antiquity.

    Within the course of time and the long wine tradition, is an irrepressible witness of stubbornness of vines that yield for good harvest in more ‘uneasy’ places. In white limestone, rocky soils of medium consistency, the old and newly planted vineyards spread their roots in search of the much-needed moisture.]

    Our next stop is in a winery that knows traditions!

    Visitors will be guided through a family winery and get introduced to the principles of organic cultivation of the vine and the “secrets” of wine. Visitors are also offered wine tasting sessions and snacks while enjoying spectacular views of the valley and the vineyards.
