All the celebrations on Cyprus are carried out in accordance with the best Greek traditions. People are offered various food, national music, and wine. The same goes for the wine festival in Limassol that is carried out since 1961 and becomes a real celebration not just for locals, but for the guests of the island too.
All main events will take place on the central square of Limassol, where people create a giant fair, allowing the guests to taste the best sorts of wine made in accordance with secret home recipes. Furthermore, visitors will be able to try the best Greek snacks and appetizers: traditional salads, souvlaki, mousaka, tzatziki and many other dishes.
The celebration is commemorated by the period of grapes collection. Many factories and private winemakers offer guests to visit their wineries, watching the process of winemaking, and participating in all the events: collecting grapes, pressing it with feet, and watching the process of winemaking.
