Short retrospective journey to the history of KEO, one of the oldest wineries in Cyprus
For the first time ever the wine made by KEO was presented to the wide public in 1213, during European wine competition. It was the legendary Commandaria, which we will talk about later. KEO and its wine became one of the winners. In 1362 Commandaria also became a prize winner in "Feast of the Five Kings" competition.
Despite such a successful beginning, the winery expanded its production capacity only in 1930s. Today KEO produces more than 40 different wines, spirits and low-alcohol beverages, such as:
- Red and white wine;
- Beers and ciders.
Most part of the wines and spirits produced by KEO plant are exported to Europe and USA.
