Peloponnese Wine Festival Cyprus 2020

Peloponnese Wine Festival Cyprus 2020

We are very happy to announce that the largest group of Wines of Peloponnese winemakers ever to visit Cyprus arrives on February 3 in Limassol to showcase their beautifully crafted, top-quality wines to all Cypriot professionals and passionate oenophiles. The event will take place at the Ceronia Hall of Carob Mill Restaurants in Limassol from noon to 8 pm and it is open to professionals and oenophiles.

Twenty-six top Peloponnese winemakers will visit Limassol for their annual walk-around tasting event that will highlight the big picture of the Peloponnese vineyard with its amazing diversity of styles and varietals. This is the only union of Winemakers in Greece to hold a tasting event in Cyprus each year for the last four years.

The wines will be diverse, with an amazing array of indigenous and international varieties grown in the biggest Greek vineyard, from regions spanning from Nemea and Patra through to Monemvasia and Kalamata. There will be more than 200 different wines available for tasting throughout the walk-around tasting event, so please wear your comfortable shoes and get prepared for a great wine marathon.

Yannis Karakasis MW will also host a master class for a second year within the Peloponnese Wine Festival. Yiannis Karakasis MW said that he is thrilled to come back for another year to Cyprus in order to present one of his benchmark master classes “The Icon Varieties of Peloponnese: Their Styles and Perspectives” that will try to unlock the typicity and the different styles of the most celebrated varieties of Peloponnese as expressed through their greatest terroirs.

For the first time at Peloponnese Wine Festival in Limassol you will be able to keep your tasting notes online through platform. All the participating wineries and the wines of the tasting will be available online and you will be able to keep your own personal notes, track your favorite wines and create your personal wine list with all the wines that you will taste and score throughout the event. This is an innovating project and a very useful tool for professionals and wine-lovers that the organizing team of PWF has developed and they will share it with you for the first time through the Peloponnese Wine Festival.

The event is open to both professionals and consumers. Free entrance.
