Looking for great tasting, high quality Cyprus wines? Tsangarides winery has a great selection and is now my favourite local winery, offering mouthwatering table wines at a great price.
Tsangarides winery in the idyllic Lemona valley
Established in 2005, Angelos Tsangarides produces quality Cyprus wine with passion and enthusiasm.
His small boutique winery situated in Lemona village in the hills above Paphos started with around 50,000 bottles per year production. In the years we have known Angelos, his business continues to grow and he now produces over 100,000 bottles a year, while maintaining his excellent standards of both taste and consistency.
Tsangarides winery when it started
This image taken back in 2007 shows how much has evolved and not only on the exterior of the building. But rest assured, the wines and the passion for making them at this unique boutique winery have definitely not changed.
Angelos continues to invest in the most up to date wine production equipment, from stainless steel vats to bottling machines and oak barrels to age some of his wines. He will happily share his love of wine making with visitors plus offer a tasting straight from the vat if you visit at the right time of year.
Tsangarides Rose - Perfect summer drink!
Among the best Cyprus wines produced by Angelos are the rich quality reds of Mataro and Cabernet Sauvignon, the aromatic and fresh organic Chardonnay, the gorgeous Shiraz rose, plus everyday drinking Xynisteri white and Ayios Efrem red.
Angelos proudly won the prestigious gold awards for his Mataro and Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 at the Cyprus national wine competition in 2007 - their first year on the market! And he has won many awards since.
Angelos is constantly striving to improve his wines and continually plants new vines. In the early years, hardly any rose wine was consumed on the island. Now the Shiraz rose is the largest production wine at Tsangarides with over 30,000 bottles per year. Angelos also produces several organic wines, including the luscious Mataro and a small production Shiraz/Maratheftiko rose.

Wine tasting at Tsangarides Winery
To encourage local residents and visitors alike to take an interest in Cyprus wine, Angelos has introducied an innovative scheme whereby YOU can become a winemaker too!
For €100 Euros, you can adopt a vine in one of his vineyards. Throughout the year you can come and tend to the vines and watch them grow. Then see them being picked, the wine created and finally you will receive a case of wine made from your own grapes plus 10% discount off your wine purchases throughout the year.
It's a different way of purchasing your wine and far more enjoyable to see the literal fruits of Angelos' and your (if you wish it) labour. For further details or to arrange an appointment to see Angelos and share his love of wine making, go to the Tsangarides website or telephone on +357 26722777.
