Kyperounda Winery Petritis

The winery is located at Kyperounda, in the Pitsilia area of the Troodos range, 75 km from Nicosia and 50 km from Limassol. At an altitude of 1140 m, it prides itself as sitting on a higher altitude point than any other winery in Europe. Situated in this idyllic setting and designed to the specifications of experienced winemakers, the winery is built on three levels in order to take advantage of gravity to move the grape juice in the gentlest possible way. The winery’s underground cellar holds two hundred and fifty 225lt oak barrels, in which the wine matures and develops character. The production capacity of the winery is about 200,000 bottles. The winery’s first wines were bottled in 2003 and their appearance on the local wine market was welcomed wth enthusiasm.
