Mountainous Larnaka (Larnaca) - Lefkosia (Nicosia) Wine Route

Comprising the expanse of the mountainous areas of both Larnaka (Larnaca) and Lefkosia (Nicosia), this varied route is one that marries the old viticultural history of the island with the new, modern face of the winemaking industry.

Passing through 10 villages, the route takes in three wineries, quaint museums and workshops. Even though it is outside of the traditional wine regions, there are active winemakers here who have planted vineyards with the white varieties of  Assyrtiko, Malvasia Aromatica, Chardonnay Xynisteri and Sauvignon blanc, and the red varieties of Maratheftiko, Cabernet and Merlot - ensuring their fast integration into the island’s winemaking portfolio.

A love of wine is combined with other cultural aspects along this route, such as the inclusion of the village of Lefkara - famous for its handmade lace embroidered linens and delicate filigree silver - along with the village of Fikardou, which is home to one of the oldest traditional wine presses in Cyprus.

This enlightening route passes through: Lefkosia, Skarinou, Lefkara, Kato Drys, Vavla, Ora, Odou, Farmakas, Gourri, Fikardou and Kalo Chorio.
