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.
