Welcome to Commandaria region of Cyprus.

Commandaria is a sweet, delicious dessert wine with natural warm ruby color
It is one of the best and oldest wines in Cyprus, and thankfully still in production today. This unique wine is produced from mature, sun dried grapes of the varieties 'xinisteri' and 'mavro'. Commandaria is only produced in 14 traditional villages of Cyprus such as Lanea, Monagri and others.
The Commandaria region is located on the slopes of the Troodos Mountains.
It is said to date back to the time of the ancient Greeks, 4000 years ago, when it was a popular drink at festival in celebrating the goddess of Love and Beauty, Aphrodite. Evripides called it the Cyprus Nama, synonymous with the Nectar of Gods. The name Commandaria however dates back to the crusades in the 12th century. It was greatly enjoyed at the wedding of Richard the Lionheart and was thus pronounced as the Wine of Kings and the Kong of the Wines
It is believed that Commandaria won the first ever best wine tasting competition that included wines from all over Europe and France. In recognition of its long tradition, it has been awarded the: ' Appellation of Controlled Origin'.
