Wine Museum

The Wine Museum is housed in an old stone building situated in the outskirts of Erimi village, not far from Limassol. Under the same roof the visitor will discover the long history of Cyprus' viniculture, the art of wine making and the diversity of the island's wine culture. The building itself had once been an inn where wine merchants would stay overnight on the way to town to sell their wine.

A year after the opening of the Museum in 2005, it came to light that the deposit remains traced at the bottom of jars excavated in a settlement near Erimi that date back to the Chalcolithic Period, contained tartaric acid which is the characteristic acid of wine. This evidence is testimony to the fact that wine had been produced on the island for at least 5500 years, making Cyprus the home of the oldest wine in Europe.
