Geography

Situated in the north-western shores of Cyprus, at the Akamas Laona region and the village of Kathikas, the winery invites you to visit their windswept vineyards. The visitor may enjoy a unique geography, unlike anywhere else on the island.

s
Climate

The area varies from 400 to 650 meters and has an annual rate of rainfall of about 610mm. It has a generally mild climate tempered by the sea breeze, offering cool yet solid wines with a fine aroma, most probably among the best wines produced on the island.

s
Soils

Most vineyards of the Akamas Laona region lie on lime (asbestolithic) ground, while some in loamy-gypsum. Vineyards seem to have found a suitable home in the arid, limestone and volcanic terroirs of the island.

The Kathikas area is famous for its white grape varieties, mainly the native Xynisteri but also Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Muscat. Of course it produces also beautiful red varieties such as Maratheftiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Alicante B., Grenache, Shiraz and Merlot and others.

s
Taste

The wines in the Akamas Laona area have a distinctive saline character possibly because of the combination of sea influence, limestone soils and high altitudes. Higher altitudes favors the production of more tight wines while volcanic and limestone soils do seem to provide backbone, structure and energy to the wines.
