Pitsilia Wine Route

EXCURSIONS / Routes / Limassol / Wine Routes / Pitsilia Wine Route
Pine and vines grow freely into the mountainsides exuding rural charm.

Neat villages and friendly people complete the picture.

Several villages are included in the 'Nom d' Origine' Pitsilia, an area that spreads around the mountain peaks of Madari, Papoutsa and the north-western part of Machairas.

Here the altitude secures a more slow and effortless grape maturity, whilst the arid and sloping earth forces the vines to huddle together and produce richer wines.

Classic local grape varieties continue to have a dominant presence amongst the vineyards of Pitsilia, with occasional encounters of the Maratheftiko, a rare variety which the old wine frowers cultivated in between the Mavro in order to enrich the colour and smell of their wines.

Start Point: Mesa Geitonia
End Point: Palodeia
