Vine growing in Pissouri

The cultivation of the vine, wine production and drinking are deeply rooted in the mythical and historical traditions of Greece. Cyprus, being always an inseparable part of Hellenism, is no exception to the tradition.

Pissouri, though situated at the foot of the mountainous vine growing region of Cyprus, was indeed very late in embracing vine growing which started there only in 1933 in the Linidia and Limnes areas. By the 1950’s Pissouri became the most important "sultana" table grape producing area in Cyprus.
