Description

Following the success of 2016, this event will be another opportunity for trade, media and wine lovers to explore the island’s 6000-year winemaking history and taste genuinely exciting wines by 17 producers. It will offer the first ever opportunity in the UK to taste rare, age-old varieties like Promara, Spourtiko and Morokanella, and will show once again that Cyprus deserves an important place on the international wine map.

Cyprus’s historical links with Vintners’ Hall date back to 1363, when King Peter I of Cyprus, together with four other kings, was entertained at a banquet reception at the Hall, widely known as the Feast of the Five Kings. According to the tradition, the five kings used Commandaria, the traditional wine of Cyprus, to toast.

At this TRADE ONLY event, many internationally awarded wines will be presented, produced by the distinctive local grapes of the island, along with popular international varieties made in the Cyprus style.

Caroline Gilby MW and Demetri Walters MW, both leading experts on Cyprus wines, will each hold a Masterclass as part of the event.

Caroline will be taking a look at the native white grapes of Cyprus and the rediscovery of some almost forgotten varieties. She will finish with a brief look at the traditional and new faces of Commandaria.

Demetri will be showing native and international red grapes that are finding their optimal terroir and driving a systematic improvement in wine quality on the island.
