Decoding Commandaria Wines

Wine Tasting and Storytelling

The Knights of st John the Hospice created the Grand Commandarie de Chypre to command their order and manage their activities around Europe and the rest of the world, when they transferred here from Jerusalem in 1192 and formed the kingdom of Cyprus.
Invasion followed invasion. Lusignan rule was followed by the Venetians and then the Ottomans. In 1878 the island was ceded to Britain and in 1960 Cyprus became an independent republic. In 2004 Cyprus joined the European Union. Yet one thing still remains the same….

Great evening activity to enjoy, taste and absorb the senses of Cyprus while learning about a variety of wines and historical stories (or tales? -- you get to decide!). Pambos is a warm and friendly host and you'll be able to participate no matter your level of wine tasting experience.

We had a last minute evening meeting with Pambos, who is an amazing host!adapting the whole experience to us. We had a very friendly, informative and enjoyable evening, learning useful tips about wine tasting, Cyprus in general and most importantly the Commandarias we tried were amazing. The Sherlock pub was a nice surprise, very unique ambience, a definite revisit if we are in Limassol. Don’t expect to get drunk. This experience is much more sophisticated. Amazing value for the price.

** In the 11th Century, King Richard the Lionheart, at his wedding, called the sweet wine of Cyprus “the Wine of Kings and the King of Wines”. The Knights of the st John Order created the Grand Commandarie de Chypre to command their order and manage their activities around Europe and the rest of the world, when they transferred here from Jerusalem in 1192 and formed the kingdom of Cyprus.
Invasion followed invasion. Lusignan rule was followed by the Venetians and then the Ottomans. In 1878 the island was ceded to Britain and in 1960 Cyprus became an independent republic. In 2004 Cyprus joined the European Union. Yet one thing still remains the same…. 

We will use proper organoleptic analysis (2 dry and 3 sweet wines) to unfold the elements that complete the taste of the island’s sweet treasure. Our free-flowing discussion is designed to equip you with the basic knowledge to be a smart wine buyer and a Commandaria aficionado. This experience is an excellent team-building activity or date idea for wine-loving couples.
