Larnaca E-Bike Wine Adventure
Having been halted in our tracks by epidemiological measures and other governmental regulations, Wines and Tours is now finding its feet again in a way that combines a thirst for tasting good wine with a thirst for adventure.
Soon in July we shall be offering our first e-bike wine tour in Cyprus. We will be exploring not just local wine, but also another local product – honey. In the past we have found that combining wine with another theme of interest has blended well.
As temperatures in Cyprus can get jolly-hot in July, for comfort we are opting for an early start – so here is our planned programme:
At 7.00 am we meet at the Kafestiatorion Lagias for their popular “English Breakfast – Cyprus Style”. Directions for getting there are through this link: https://www.kafestiatorionlagias.com/how-to-find-us/
We set off on our e-bikes at 7.45 am to Christoudias Winery (between Valva and Kato Dris). Upon arrival, you will join a tour of their winery followed by a snack and tasting samples of their wines. Afterwards, there is a visit to the Wine & Beekeeping Museum in Kato Dris. Eli, the owner, has a collection of anecdotes from real local history that have fascinated previous tour participants.
During mid-morning, with a buzz in the air – we shall visit Ecophysics Beekeepers in Valva. After a video presentation and tasting of different honeys, we go to the beehive area and put-on protective clothing (reminiscent of space suits) and listen to a presentation from Costas, the beekeeper. We finish with a picnic in nature, by consuming entirely natural local products.
At about 13.30 we leave Ecophysics. On the way back to the meeting point – there’s time to relax by seeing the much-visited church of “Panagia tis Agapis” (Our Lady of Love) located in the wilds just outside Valva.
Our tour finishes at 14.30 at the original meeting point in Lageia.
