Afamia Grape Festival
From: Saturday, October 6 2007, 7:00 am
to: Sunday, October 7 2007, 2:00 pm
This grape festival in Cyprus' oldest wine growing area, Koilani (near Limassol), is an opportunity for all the villagers to wind down after the big push to gather in the harvest.
As well as wine tasting, watch out for the mega sweet palouze - a Cypriot dessert delicacy made from grape juice - as well as a host of agricultural products and crafts. Painting exhibitions, open-air markets and folk dance performances complete the scene.
The countryside around Limassol is very pretty and is also home to Kolossi Castle, where the Crusaders first made their delicious sweet wine, Commandaria. Be sure to try some of this while you're here too.
