    The history of wine in Cyprus goes back centuries. The results of recent archaeological researches showed that wine production in Cyprus began 5500 years ago! References to the Cyprus wine have been recorded early in ancient Greek texts. The reputation of the Cyprus wine was known in later years, since, as we are informed by famous English poet and playwright, William Shakespeare, Romeo Mark Antony gave the island of Cyprus to his beloved Cleopatra, queen of Egypt, calling it as sweet as the Cyprus Nama known as the old Cypriot wine. Twelve centuries later, the Englishman Richard Lionheart departed from Cyprus saying: We need to go back to Cyprus just to re-taste the wine. Traditionally, Cypriots produce wine from different varieties of grapes with a preponderance of black or red and Xynisteri or white. A Special mention deserves the famous, sweet Cypriot wine komandaria (or Commandaria), which is produced on the island for centuries. Production commandaria documented in Cyprus from 800 BC but intensified and systematized with its current name during the Frankish period

    when the production area belonged to the Order of the Knights of Ioannina. The reputation of this wine with distinctive red color and velvety taste soon became so great that the King of France Philip-August named it the Apostle of wines Today, many centuries later, on the southern slopes of the Troodos mountain range, in some beautiful wine villages still the Commandaria is still produced Nowadays, Cypriots, faithful to its long tradition, produce more wine per person than any other country in the world but consume less of any other country in Europe. The quality of Cypriot grapes and therefore the Cyprus wine, is known worldwide, so many are those who prefer the Cyprus wine.

    Vasa is a village situated in the Limassol district. It is only thirty five kilometers far from the city of Limassol and it is situated at an average altitude of 790 meters. It is interesting how the villages name is being associated with its topography; it has been named Vasa by the ancient Greek word Vassa or Vessa which means wooded valley. Thus, the famous wine village Vasa Kilaniou or Krasoxorion has traditionally contributed in the production of high quality Cypriot wine. Despite its size , Vasa has a rich ecclesiastical history. The villages main church is the one of Panayia tou Evagelismou built in 1896-1900 .Also there are three chapels of Timios prodromos and Prohphet Helias and just outside the village the one of Saint Geeorgios built in the 14th century .Additionally one can find the caves of the Apostle Barnabas and St. Timon, places where they lived as ascetics Saints, and just next to the cave there is the chapel dedicated to saint Barnabas.

    While in Vasa, we highly recommend a visit to the following museums. The ecclesiastical museum which was built in order to house and preserve the Greek and Orthodox treasures,. The museum of education which is the first museum of Elementary Education History in Cyprus and also the museum of Zivania which offers to its visitors valuable information about the Cypriot grape products. Worth mentioning is the fact that Vasa is notorious for the vine production and grape products. Of immense beauty is the nature trail which starts and ends in the chapel of Saint Geroge just next to the river. Lastly a tour around the village with the gobled streets and folkor architecture is an experience worth living. All in all Vasa is a village that remains unforgettable to each and every visitor.
