Zambartas Wineries was founded by Akis Zambartas in 2006. After years in the wine business as Chief Winemaker and Managing Director of one of the biggest wine producers in Cyprus, he decided to follow his dream of establishing his own boutique winery. The pivotal point was the decision of his son, Marcos Zambartas, to quit the corporate world and fly to Australia to become a winemaker.
In 2007 the Zambartas Winery was built in the Krasochoria region in Agios Amvrosios village, on the southern slope of the Troodos Mountains near Limassol.
In 2008, Marcos returned from Australia with a Master in Winemaking from the University of Adelaide and joined his father on the cellar floor. The first years working together in the new winery were a constant quest for finding good quality grapes and creating high quality wines. In the meanwhile we managed to build a brand that people would grow to love.
Since then, Zambartas Wineries has continued to successfully develop both vineyards and winery. Sémillon, Lefkada and Maratheftiko grapes were planted, which turned from humble cuttings to fruit-producing plants. We also acquired old Xynisteri and Mavro vineyards. Our range of 10 wines were awarded with over 50 medals in local and international wine competitions, and our winery received acclaim from well-known wine journalists.
Marcos currently runs the winery together with his wife Marleen and their dedicated team with a lot of passion and enthusiasm. New projects, goals and challenges lay ahead, which we take up with a lot of happiness, knowing that our wines are an integral part of people having a great time together.
