Cyprus was one of the first countries in the world to make wine and it has a history of wine-making that stretches back more than 5500 years, that is interwoven with many of the events and traditions of the island. Historians believe that Cyprus has the longest continuous history of wine-making in the world. The museum displays the history of Cyprus wine, the science of Cypriot wine making and the diversity of the Cyprus wine industry all under the same roof. The Cyprus Wine Museum is housed in a beautifully renovated two story stone building that has been owned by the family of Cypriot composer Anastasia Guy for more than a century. On the first floor of the building is the Wine Museum which gives an innovative and creative insight into the history of wine-making in Cyprus. In St Ilarion Hall, on the ground floor of the museum, we exhibit the Wine Trails. Here we show in a series of alcoves in the stone walls the Cypriot wine producers. It is here that visitors can relax and enjoy some of the different indigenous varieties of wines, accompanied by traditional Cypriot delicacies. Seminars about the methods of wine tasting, the history of Cypriot wine and in general the wine tradition of the island are held in the St Ilarion Hall. Also here is the perfect setting for private parties such as Ancient Greek, Roman, Medieval nights etc. The ideal place for exhibitions, conferences, seminars, wedding ceremonies and events.
