The basics

From ancient wine jars to Greek drinking practices, the Cyprus Wine Museum is an ode to Cypriot wine. It’s possible to purchase tickets to the museum that include wine tastings in the downstairs tasting room, where local wine is available for sale. Since it’s just a short distance from Limassol, the Cyprus Wine Museum can be visited in an afternoon, or combined with nearby sites including the ancient site of Kourion.

When to get there

The museum is open daily, year round. A great time to visit is during the Limassol Wine Festival from late August through early September. To visit Cypriot wineries during the grape harvest, however, come anywhere between August and mid-November. Since vineyards extend from lower to higher altitudes, the harvest time varies widely with location.

Cyprus Wine Villages to Visit

Wineries are scattered through some of the island’s most scenic places, such as pretty Omodos, a winemaking village with cobblestone streets and plenty of traditional charm. Another favorite is Kathikas, a rural spot that’s home to the Vasilikon Winery. The Troodos Mountains town of Koilani makes both wine and a spirit distilled from grapes; try some of each at the annual grape festival held here in October and November.
