Subject:Cyprus Wine Tasting & Masterclass-Vintners’ Hall, London

Following the success of 2016, this event was another opportunity for trade, media and wine lovers to explore the island’s 6000-year winemaking history and taste genuinely exciting wines by 18 producers. It offered the first ever opportunity in the UK to taste rare, age-old varieties like Promara, Spourtiko and Morokanella, and showed once again that Cyprus deserves an important place on the international wine map.

Cyprus’s historical links with Vintners’ Hall date back to 1363, when King Peter I of Cyprus, together with four other kings, was entertained at a banquet reception at the Hall, widely known as the Feast of the Five Kings. According to the tradition, the five kings used Commandaria, the traditional wine of Cyprus, to toast.

At this TRADE ONLY event, many internationally awarded wines were presented, produced by the distinctive local grapes of the island, along with popular international varieties made in the Cyprus style.

Caroline Gilby MW and Demetri Walters MW, both leading experts on Cyprus wines, each held a Masterclass as part of the event.


The Cyprus Trade Centre in London operates under the auspices of the Cyprus Ministry of Energy, Commerce, Industry as the economic and commercial section of the Cyprus High Commission in the United Kingdom. It is one of the thirteen export promotion missions of the Republic of Cyprus abroad.
