The winery is located in the municipality of Agios Amvrosios northwest of Limassol in the Krasochoria region of Cyprus. It was founded in 2006 by Akis Zambartas (+2014). After studying winemaking and chemistry in Lyon and Montpellier, he worked in the industry for 35 years, most recently as chief winemaker and managing director at major producer KEO. Through visits to wineries and vineyards around the world, he acquired detailed knowledge of all aspects of grape growing and wine production. Zambartas was particularly devoted to the autochthonous Cypriot varieties, a dozen of which he rediscovered and partly reactivated in old vineyards. These included Canella, Flouriko and Yiannoudi. In recognition of his enormous achievements, he was a member of the AIV (Academie Internationale de Vin). Son Marcos Zambartas earned a Masters Degree in winemaking from the University of Adelaide and a Bachelor's and Masters Degree in Chemistry from Imperial University London, and gained practical knowledge in Provence, France and New Zealand. The farm has been run by him since the death of his father.
