Kyperounda Winery wine producer
Located in the Pitsilia area of the Troodos mountain range, Kyperounda is the third-highest village in Cyprus. Although the area has long been noted for the quality of its vineyards, it had no local winery. Grapes had to trucked to big wineries on the coast.
In the late Nineties a group of local grape growers formed a cooperative to produce their own wine, and in 2000 the brewing and beverage giant Photos Photiades Group became a major shareholder, providing the funds needed to construct a state-of-the-art, gravity-fed winery in time for the 2003 vintage.
Minas Mina has been their winemaker from the beginning. Born in Nicosia, he studied winemaking in Greece and then did a Masters in Food Biotechnology in Scotland before returning to Cyprus to craft wines for Kyperounda.
The winery owns 12 hectares of its own vineyards and buys in additional grapes from local growers. They’re best known for their dry whites from Chardonnay and the local Xynisteri, which are regarded as the island’s best. They also produce reds from international varieties and have recently begun production of their own version of Cyprus’s famous dessert wine Commandaria.
