The island of Cyprus (Greek: Κύπρος Kypros, Turkish: Kıbrıs) in the eastern Mediterranean covers 9,251 square kilometres. It is only around 70 kilometres from the south coast of Turkey, just under 400 kilometres from the east coast of the Greek island of Rhodes and over 800 kilometres from mainland Greece. Although Cyprus belongs geographically to Asia, it is usually categorised politically and culturally as part of Europe. The island was under British rule from 1878 to 1960. It was not until 1925 that it was officially declared a British Crown Colony and thus also legally part of Great Britain (United Kingdom).

Sigi Hiss

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
