THE WINERY

Taste Aes Ambelis and
be Part of History

Our winery was founded in 1992, with the vision to produce wines of unique character and premium quality. The estate is located on the slopes of Kalo Chorio Orinis in the Nicosia district, 28 km southwest of the capital. The winery, which is unique in architectural style, is a two-level structure that includes modern winemaking facilities, an underground cellar for barrel and bottle aging, as well as a tasting and reception hall.

The winery is surrounded by a three hectare vineyard, planted with the grape varieties Maratheftiko and Shiraz. All our vineyards are managed with extra care using environmentally friendly farming practices.

Tasting & Tours

We are Vineyard
Specialists First

The winery is open all year round for public visits and tastings. Our guests have the unique opportunity to taste all our wines in our purposely built tasting hall that overlooks, on the one side the barrel aging cellar, and on the other side the beautiful Pitsilia mountains.

Furthermore, visitors can arrange to take our winery tour that follows the winemaking process from grapes to glass. During the tour they can explore the surrounding vineyard and the inner workings of the winery, including fermentation and barrel aging and conclude the overall experience with a seated tasting of our wines. Finally, our guests have the choice to accompany their tasting with artisanal cheese and charcuterie selections from local traditional producers.
