Mandy's Birthday and Wine tour

To celebrate Mandy's birthday we took a wine tour of the Troodos mountains. our first stop was Vlassides which is located in the village of Koilani were we were given a very informative talk about wine production before sampling their wines.

We then moved onto Constantinou winery and were shown around the fermentation hall and bottling plant before once again tasting the wines produced.

Our third winery was at Tsiakkas where the owner, Costas, gave us a very interesting talk on the history of wine in Cyprus, followed by more sampling of his very good wines.

We then made our way up to the village of Pera Pedi and headed over to The Symposium restaurant  for a very good meze. The Symposium is run by Nicos who once ran a taverna in Pissouri square. A big thanks to Harris for organising our day out.
