A rosé frame of mind

How curiosity in wine stays fashionable

A pleasant reminder of how far intuition and curiosity will still take you in our modern day world of wine

Rosés for the love of it

In a world of ephimeral fashions and trends, it’s highly appreciative to read and see  how far the good old curiosity can take you in modern day world of wine.

Follow this not to miss account on modern day cypriot rosés written and instigated by Elizabeth Gabay MW, joined by Sarah Jane Evans MW and masterly serviced by fellow MW, Yiannis Karakasis – yet another mark of his passage on the island this late spring.

Mondial du Rosé, a natural habitat for Maratheftiko

Honor to Rosés and honor to the Mondial du Rosé competition with Cyprus Wine.

Maratheftiko Rosé captures silver at the Mondial du Rosé Competition

Recent participation of Sodap Wines in this 10th edition of the international competition Le Mondial du Rosé evokes not only the constancy of a Rosé winemaking in Cyprus but also the natural adequacy which the endemic Maratheftiko has for making splendid rosés. The question remains as to why there aren’t more wineries participating in this annual event organised by the French Union of Oenologues.

Rosé owes this achievement to the ambition and determination of winegrowers and producers to master the highly complex technical and wine-making specifics these wines require.

Indeed, a category of wines that has legitimately outgrown clichés of summer  and picture perfect vacation wines. It is thus that not only we celebrate the Silver Medal for Stroumbeli Maratheftiko Rosé but also our most sincere congratulations to the organisers for reaching such a significant milestone.
