Cyprus Suggested Wine Tour Days
CYPRUS Wine Tours Organised by the Wines
& Tours – Cyprus Office
Cyprus is a popular holiday destination, particularly with the British, who are comfortable with cars being driven on the left, happy to find the same size power sockets as those in the UK and delight in finding that English is widely spoken. Sun, sea, and mountains abound. For wine aficionados there is an added perk – Cyprus produces some excellent wines, many of them regular winners at international wine challenges.
To offer you greater flexibility, our Scheduled wine tours have evolved into Suggested wine tours, whereby in Cyprus you are free to choose the dates, length and content that appeals to you most – dependent upon your holiday location in Cyprus and the options that best suit your needs. We offer Wine Tours in Cyprus for One, Two, Three or more days, as per our notes, below.
A wine tour is a must for wine lovers and single-day tours are very popular. The vineyards and wineries are almost all in the Western part of the island, starting in the foothills of the Troodos mountains.
Single Day Wine Tours in Cyprus
Should you choose a popular single day wine tour with us, you will experience a well-balanced day of wine tastings, gastronomy, and relaxation. Our usual format is to visit a winery in the morning, taste their wine and then have a traditional Cyprus lunch, prior to another winery visit with tasting in the afternoon. Additionally, as there are many points of interest in Cyprus, we like to include a visit to say a honey producer, an Embroidery museum or an historical site as well, but this aspect depends on your choice.
We can collect you from an agreed meeting point or from your hotel or holiday villa – even if this is on the Eastern side of the island e.g. Protaras or Ayia Napa.
As a guideline, average rates for single day wine tours in areas like Kato Drys, Limassol or Paphos are about €115 per person, but dependent on the area and your chosen time of travel. Normally the tourist season in Cyprus runs from April to October but is busiest during June to August. May and June are usually the driest months and the “Wine Harvest” period runs from August to mid-November.

Two – or Three-Day Wine Tours in Cyprus
Should you opt to do a two or three-day wine tour with us, there’s greater flexibility to enable us to incorporate activities such as a “wine experience day” where you can actually take part in the process of running a winery without all the real-life heavy effort. According to the time of year, this might include planting some vines or carrying out some pruning. We might operate the bottling plant and even make some of the byproducts, like Soutzoukos (a Cyprus chewy sweet made from grape juice) that is usually made in Cyprus alongside wine.
Longer wine tours up to a week:
All-inclusive Week Wine Tours (bar flights) provide a rather economical way of enjoying the lovely island of Cyprus with a lot of fun with wine and gastronomy packaged in. However, economy depends on the style of hotel you choose. Some people want five-star luxury. Others are drawn to picturesque traditional accommodation. Our new approach of specialising in custom-designed wine holidays gives us the flexibility to address your preferences precisely. Transport is one of the most expensive elements of our wine tours and groups of six or more people certainly help greatly into achieving an economical price for all involved.
What is the best location from which to base a multi-day wine tour?
Pissouri (between Limassol and Paphos) is one good option. From there, both the Limassol Wine Routes (to the East) and the Paphos Wine Routes (to the West) are easily accessible. Another location that we currently favour is Lageia, which is a beautiful and peaceful village in the foothills of the Troodos mountain range. There are a couple of wineries in the immediate vicinity. Also, our Company Secretary, Bill Warry, runs a restaurant there and is well placed to organise a food and wine pairing dinner for you, should the notion appeal.
