Experience the Lemesos Wine Festival with limitless elegance

Posted on 2010/08/17 by


Cyprus has a winemaking tradition that goes back more than 5,000 years, its “kindly slopes” so fertile for the cultivation of grapes that it became a spiritual center for followers of Dionysus, the god of wine. That tradition serves as the foundation of the Lemesos Wine Festival, an annual wine event that connects ancient history with the present day through the island’s amazing wines. This year’s festival (August 27 – September 5, 2010) will feature a performance by the Lemesos Philharmonic Orchestra, an exhibition of Cypriot dance by the Lemesos Folklore Association, and entertainment ranging from magic shows to storytelling. As for the wine, a variety of events will educate and enlighten visitors on the noble grape, including a series at the Cyprus Wine Museum that lets you learn about Cypriot wine traditions while enjoying some of the finest wines produced there today. Of course, you’ll want a comfortable and convenient place to stay before, during and after the festival, so look to enjoy and immerse yourself in Cyprus wine history.
