Afamia Grape Festival in Cyprus August 5, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Arts Events Cyprus, Arts Festivals.

Afamia Grape Festival > This grape festival in Cyprus’ oldest wine growing area, Koilani, near Limassol, is an opportunity for all the villagers to wind down after the big push to gather in the grape harvest.

As well as wine tasting, look out for the palouze, a Cypriot delicacy made from grape juice, as well as a host of agricultural products and crafts. Painting exhibitions, open-air markets and folk dance performances complete the scene.

The countryside around Limassol is very pretty and is also home to Kolossi Castle, where the Crusaders first made their delicious sweet wine, Commandaria. Be sure to try some of this while you’re there.

When > 06-07 October 2007 in Koilani, Limassol, Cyprus.
