This producer has not only the highest winery in Europe situated at 1,140 metres, but
also the highest vineyards at over 1,400 metres above sea level. Located at
Kyperounda, in the Pitsilia area of the Troodos mountain range, the Kyperounda
Winery sits in an idyllic setting, with correspondingly spectacular views. The winery
was designed to the specifications of experienced winemakers and uses gravity to
produce wine in the gentlest possible way. They have been producing wine since

barriques for two months, adding subtle oak complexity to the final blend.

vanilla. A medium bodied yet refreshing wine with a long, persistent finish.
