Zambartas Wineries was established in 2006 by the Zambartas family. With the wealth of knowledge of father Akis and the modern Australian winemaking training of son Marcos, the focus was on creating quality wines that express the true identity of Cypriot vineyards and varieties. Since then the winery has become one of the leading wineries of the island, and greatly contributed to the current modern revival of the Cypriot wine industry. Winemaker Marcos Zambartas and his wife Marleen run the winery with a team of young and dedicated people. Marcos makes a conscious effort in preserving and promoting the endemic varieties of the island, such as Xynisteri, Maratheftiko and Yiannoudi. Besides planting new vineyards, he loves saving the truly unique centenarian vineyards that thrive on Cyprus’ dry chalky soils. The Zambartas family takes great value in a balanced relationship with nature, and therefore applies organic practices on the 11 hectares of owned and rented vineyards and strives for circular production methods. Putting nature at the centre of our business, we donate 1% of our annual sales back to nature through the ‘1% for the planet’ partnership.
