About WineCore.

WINECORE was formed by seventeen wineries and wine visionaries. It was created out of our passion for wine and of our Cypriot wine heritage. WINECORE’s vision is to shape the future of viticulture in Cyprus, with high quality wines made from indigenous ungrafted grape varieties. 

Cypriot grape varieties are essential to us. Our fathers, traditional and “heroic” grape growers, have passed on to us their valuable knowledge and affection for the island’s unique terroir.

We are preserving this tradition and evolving the art of winemaking, with the mission of bringing iconic Cyprus wines and enjoyment to wine drinkers around the world. This vital wealth of nature is carefully passed on to the new generation of winemakers all around.
