Wine Road - Dhiarizos Valley

The island’s tradition of winemaking is well known, since here is the place where the oldest wine label in the world exists today, the Commandaria.
While the same ancient grape varieties are being cultivated and villages still produce wine in the old way, the wine industry of the island has evolved, modernized and expanded.
