Wine is one of the oldest local products of Cyprus.

Zambartas Wineries is one of these family owned boutique wineries and will share with you their success story. Special focus will be given to marketing strategies of the company.

The company: The story of Zambartas Wines started in 2006 with a timid production of 4500 bottles. Since then Akis Zambartas and his son Marcos have kept the faith that Cyprus has the potential to produce wines of international class. Now, they have reached 2014 with 55,000 bottles of Zambartas wine which are enjoyed by locals and visitors from all over the world.
