With 14 gorgeous Commandaria-producing villages in the foothills of the Troodos Mountains, take the drive towards Ayios Mamas, and a charming little place shedding light on this prised sweet Cyprus drink awaits.
One of the oldest wines in the world still in production, with an over 4000-year history, Revecca Winery & Museum is housed in an old Cypriot residence and takes visitors on a great journey into times past, with old tools used for land cultivation and wine production on display. The name ‘Revecca’ comes from a Cypriot lady who was once in charge of the house, while also, farming the nearby land and raising her children. You’ll even get to see how she prepared food for the family, while you’re also given the chance to take a look at the stone-built oven where she used to bake. A collection of clay figures by naif artist, Demetris Yerocostas, are also on display.
The winery itself produces Commandaria under the ‘Commandaria Revecca’ brand, using “mavro” (a local red) and “xinisteri”, a fruity white grape. Enjoy a taste of the unique sweet wine while you’re at the premises, and you can also take a good look at the on-site distillery.
