Yes, I would like to mention that at wine tastings the cheese platters we offer are carefully curated with a variety of artisanal cheeses, crackers, fruits and nuts, all served on a beautifully presented board. They are the perfect complement to the wines and make a perfect date or visit with friends.
Also, our Winery is open for tours and wine tasting, all year round.

Thank you very much Mr. Chrysanthou. We wish you all the best and we are sure people will love your winery and your amazing wine.
