A visit to Tsiakkas winery

We drove up into the Troodos mountains for our first visit to Tsiakkas winery which is situated just outside the village of Pelendri We tasted a number of very good wins and ordered a couple of cases for the forthcoming Christmas holidays.

The surrounding area was devastated by a forest fire in the Summer and we noticed that some of the trees were scorched just 10 metres from the winery.

We then drove over to the village of Kato Amiandos to the Amiandos garden restaurant where they were holding a US Thanksgiving day dinner and we enjoyed a superb buffet.

In the evening we went along to a birthday celebration for Jason,Andy and Dave took the opportunity to dress as TV stars “Starsky and Hutch”
