The Grapes of Wrath

Beer is made by men, wine by God. Or so said Martin Luther. Of course, Paphos has been making superb wines since ancient times. Which sounds about right for Aphrodite’s Isle. The Fikardos Winery Paphos uses traditional varieties of grape. But also newer ones such as Mataro, Cab Sav and of course Chardonnay. All of which grow high up in the nearby villages. So try and keep your head! Because as the old saying goes. In vino veritas: in wine there’s truth. We all know Greek gods enjoyed a tipple or two! But have you got the bottle?
