Getting to know the Limassol Wine Festival

Cosmopolitan Limassol proudly wears the gold crown as Cyprus’ wine capital, and for good reason! The fertile rambling countryside which surrounds the city and rises up to the spectacular Troodos Mountains is every oenophile’s delight, with hills blanketed in vines that form the prettiest picture, punctuated with traditional stone-built villages and quality boutique wineries. And at the end of every August ever since 1961, locals gather in sheer delight to pay homage to the mighty grape with a frenzy of drinking and dancing as part of the annual Limassol Wine Festival.

We here at Kanika Hotels & Resorts provide the perfect getaway for guests keen to combine a holiday with a visit to the festival, with the Elias Beach Hotel just a short drive away from the event grounds at the Limassol Municipal Gardens. The perfect oasis of calm right by the picture-perfect Mediterranean blue, the Elias Beach Hotel gives you the chance to luxuriate in relaxing surrounds while making the most of evening entertainment at the popular festival. Here’s a quick glimpse of what you can look forward to once the Wine Festival comes to life between August 30th and September 8th 2019.

  1. Enjoy a taste of local wines and gastronomic delights

Head to the event to taste some of the finest local wines from around Cyprus, on offer for free and in unlimited quantities once you have paid the small entrance fee at the door. Enjoy a swig of your favourite white, red or rosè or, even, indulge in a wine cocktail! The event also gives you the opportunity to taste traditional local produce – some made with sweet Commandaria wine, and others made from deliciously divine grape juice.

  1. Get better acquainted with the island’s history, myths and legends

Aiming to revive Dionysiac celebrations worshipping the ancient Greek god of wine, the festival gives you good opportunity to relive traditions of times past, when individuals from all walks of life sat together at common banquets, offered for free by the state, and tasted the new wines while participating in mass dances, songs, poetry and drama. With the upcoming wine festival celebrating centuries of winemaking history in Cyprus, take a good look at the statue of a Cypriot village winegrower at the event, kitted out in traditional local costume.
