The link between music and wine is reported by the Bible: “…Emerald seal set in gold is the melody of songs in the sweetness of wine“ (the Bible, Siracide, 32). Speaking of wine and its importance in the human history we approach a very broad topic, covering cultural, religious and economic factors that have left indelible footprints in the human history.
The history of Cypriot wine can be told in many ways: we have chosen that of the pottery typology, because, going back in the centuries we ﬁnd that in Cyprus some of the most ancient ceramic shapes are linked to the making, preservation and consumption of wine.
Turning back to Cyprus, it is curious to note that real horns have been used without solution of continuity until recent times and that the village tradition conserves the memory of their use during special occasions or festivities and during the wine festivals organised every year to welcome the new wine

The Cyprus Wine Museum invites you on a journey through 5500 years of Cypriot Wine Making History
The Cyprus Wine Museum started operation in November 2004, after 6 years of hard work (1998-2004) in restoring, expanding and decorating the 150 year old stone building.
Archaeologists in 1933 had excavated a settlement from the Chalcolithic Period with round houses. There were many objects found in these round houses. The most important fragments of pottery belonged to 18 pointed base flasks.
One day from the top of mountain Olympus Zeus spotted the beautiful Semele one of the daughters of Cadmus the king of Thebes and fell in love with her. He made her his, but Hera his wife became jealous and tricked her into persuading Zeus to present him self to her in all his glory.
Dionysus and Dionysos or Dionysius (Ancient Greek: Διώνυσος or Διόνυσος; also known as Bacchus in both Greek and Roman mythology and associated with the Italic Liber), the Thracian god of wine, represents not only the intoxicating power of wine, but also its social and beneficial influences. He is viewed as the promoter of civilization, a lawgiver, and lover of peace - as well as the patron deity of agriculture and the theater.
Here we can see two copies of mosaics from the house of Dionysos in Paphos. The upper one depicts the myth of Ikarios and the First Wine Drinkers. The lower mosaic depicts the triumph of Dionysos. A collection of jugs and bowls dating from 2300 BC-30BC. These are all finds from excavations of the local vicinity. Pictures of artefacts including a ceramic jug, bearing representations of everyday life. Early Bronze Age 2500-1950BC from Pyrgos village. District Archaeological museum of Limassol.
Wine and the symbolism of vineyards have a special place in Christianity. In as much as vineyards and their cultivation are a part of daily life, so are wine and vineyards part of the teaching of the Christian faith. Together with consecrated bread and olive oil they form the Holy Trinity, which Orthodox Christians treat with respect and affection.
The Byzantine era ceased in Cyprus in the 12th century. After it was conquered by King Richard the Lionheart, Cyprus was sold to The Knights Templar who set up their headquarters at the Kolossi Castle for a year until 1192 when the Lusignans took possession of the island. The Lusignans did not arrive in Cyprus with the intention of remaining long term; they intended to make use of Cyprus’ geographical positions
The mural most probably refers to the visit of Peter A’, King of Cyprus, to London and as well as other European countries in the Medieval Age and the banquets during his visits, in order to ask for financial support for the organizing of a crusade.
On display is a collection of tools related to the cultivation of grapes and the production of wine. A collection of glassware that is typical of household glassware in the 20thcentury.
The Pitharia jars from Kornos and Phini village Potters from the villages Kornos and Phini fabricated those large terracotta jars that were used exclusively for the storage of wine. They used the clay that was found around their village. The potter (male) began building his jar from the bottom. He made the basis of the jar and laid it in a little ditch, or on a straw basket.
The Alembic apparatus, consists of a bronze cauldron in which a mixture of pressed grape skins, stalks and pips (the zivana) boil, a heavy semi spherical lid made of metal and fired clay, a long tube passing through a large jar filled with cold water, and a vase for collecting the eau de vie.
On the lower ground floor is the wine tasting-room –‘The St Hillarion Hall’, with wines from 38 wineries of Cyprus, displayed in a series of alcoves in the stone walls and the serving bar is made up from large wine casks.
The Cyprus Wine Museum is situated at the birthplace of European wine, Erimi village on Limassol and it is found at the most historical and trade important crossroad on the island
Inspired by the fact that Cyprus is one of the first wine producing countries and with the advantage of owning a traditional Cypriot building that has been in my family for generations, instigated the creation of The Cyprus Wine Museum as tribute to this integral part of the history of the island. Erimi village, with its 5500 years history of wine making, is at the crossroads of the wine routes of Cyprus
If the ancient saying that "good wine, carries with it a tradition of thousands of years" is justified, then the Cypriot wines, would be by definition "good wines." Because Cyprus has a historical and ancient winemaking tradition of over a thousand years which reaches the years of Homer.
Chypre fait partie des premiers pays producteurs de vin et possède une histoire de viticulture très riche qui remonte à plus de 5,000 ans. Cette histoire est très liée à un grand nombre d’évènements et de traditions de l’îsle. Les historiens croient que Chypre possède la plus longue histoire de viticulture au monde. Une histoire basée sur une continuité. Le nouveau Musée du Vin Chypriote à Erimi, situé dans la périphérie ouest de Limassol, vous introduira, étape par étape, à la tradition de la viticulture de l’île.
Die Tatsache, daß Zypern zu den Ländern gehört, die die Weinproduktion überhaupt initiert haben und daß ich das Glück hatte ein traditioneles Haus in einem besonderen Ort als Erbschaft mehrerer Generationen zu besitzen und schließlich meine persönliche Liebe für den Wein, dein Prozeß der Production und dessen Geschichte führten mich zu den Beschluß einen Raum anzubieten, in dem sich Geschichte, Künste und Zivilisation vereinen. So ist die Idee des ZYPRISCHEN WEINMUSEUMS entstanden.
Viele Historiker sind der Ansicht daß Zypern -oder die «Evinos Nissos», wie sie im Altertum die Griechen nannten- vielleicht die längste und eine ununterbrochene Tradition in der ganzen Welt hat, was die Weinkultur und folglich auch die Weinproduktion betrifft. Seine 5000järige Geschichte ist das Hauptmerkmal des zyprischen Weins, der mit allen Traditionen, Sitten und Gebräuchen und daher mit dem Alltag der Bewohner dieser Insel Hand in Hand geht.
