Maratheftiko is an ancient grape variety that comes from Cyprus. It is also known as Vamvakada, Vamvakina, Pampakia, Mavrosportiko and Aloupostafylo.

This rare red Cypriot grape was rediscovered about 30 years ago. Initially, this grape variety was used only to add color and body to wines from the Mavro variety. It represents less than 5% of the cultivated vineyards of the island.

Unlike most grape varieties, Maratheftiko cannot self-pollinate and requires co-cultivation with other varieties in order to achieve fertilization and fruit growth. As a result of poor fertilization, bunches are often affected by Millerandage. Millerandage is a potential problem of vineyard risk in which the bunches contain fruits that differ in size and mainly in maturity.

In recent years, the wines from Maratheftiko have evolved and are constantly winning awards in international competitions.

Maratheftiko BARBA YIANNIS from Vouni Panayia

"A Tour to where it all begun...Our flagship symbol featuring the letter V along with the brand's iconic Cyprus mouflon "Agrino" standing atop it as if on a cliff, aimed to spread our message. Gazing at the future while protecting the past."

Vouni Panayia only grows autochthonous wines and has thus completely shifted to maintaining the values of Cyprus' wine-growing history of more than 6000 years.

6 to 8 Decanter awards per year and 92 Parker points for this wine show that the passion for Cyprus wines is pursued with the highest quality.
