People have been growing grapes and making wine in Cyprus for thousands of years. They were making wine before Rome was founded! That kind of history means that the Cypriots are thoroughly familiar with all facets of the wine industry and long ago developed their own distinctive wine culture, which continues today as an important part of the cultural heritage of the island. Wine today remains a significant contributor to the economy of Cyprus. This video was produced for the Cyprus Tourism Organization.
