That’s for Promara. There isn’t a long list of grapes that can stand as testimonial as to the where and how, almost extinct grapes, can be traced to have marked a new path for Cyprus winemakers in tackling fine wine on the island and the future for endemic grapes.
Fortunately the history is short – 6 years separates these #Piday dates and let’s not just look at the market now with the 2017 Promara vintages, but take Promara as a grape variety that changed a winery, that changed how white wines would be released to the market, that changed the look towards vineyards and lost grapes, and the grapes that has made a proven case for patience, value and heritage. The same patience and vision it took Vouni Panayia Winery to aim for an age-old family aspiration.
A bold book launch by Maria Elia #SmashingPlates could not deserve anything less.
Under the Evoinos guidance, we’ve packed Cyprus Indigenous white and red grapes to support the Smashing Plates book launch receptions taking place during the month of October in London.
Three bold wineries of Vouni Panayia, Ezousa and Anama will represent a consequent representation of wines aspiring for renewal and reach, embodying the essence of what we like to call – The New Generation Wines of Cyprus.
Xynisteri, Spourtiko and Promara white grapes will be matched by Maratheftiko and Mavro red and rosé wines for the different plates proposed by enlightening Chef Maria Elia.
