Experience Rural & Nature Vouni Panagias - Ambelitis Wine Route

Vouni Panagias – Ambelitis Wine Route

Embark upon a panoramic excursion into a glorious inland landscape on the Vouni Panagias – Ambelitis wine route, accompanied by the delights of the locally produced wines.

In the western part of the island, east of the Pafos (Paphos) mountainous area, the route unfolds at an altitude of 800 metres to offer an unparalleled wine experience. Along the way, visitors will delight in also discovering fragrant pine forests, unique flora and a variety of mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds.

The 10 wineries of the route are diverse and produce white wines of particular fineness in aroma and lightness of body, thanks to the local Xynisteri (white) grape variety that predominantly grows here. Hints of green apple, peach and apricot characterise the white wines of the area, whilst the ancient – and rare – red Maratheftiko grapes are enriched by red fruit, violets and roses.

You will also discover 27 varieties of grape vine, of which there is an impressive showing of Carignan Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. The villages on this route also produce some of the best wines of the indigenous Mavro (red) variety, thanks to the relatively high altitude and a mild climate, which benefit the vines and combine to produce pleasant dark and rose wines.

This picturesque route passes offers the option of two alternative ending points and passes through: Pafos (Paphos), Mesogi, Tsada, Stroumbi, Polemi, Psathi, Kannaviou, Asprogia, Pano Panagia, Chrysorrogiatissa, Agia Moni, Statos-Agios Fotios, Koilineia, Galataria, Pentalia, Amargeti, Eledio, Agia Varvara and Acheleia or Choulou, Lemona, Kourdaka, Letymvou and Kallepeia.
