Our story begins in 1992 when Yiannis and Alexia Christoudia, the winery’s creators got married. Although Yiannis was working as an accountant, he started out by producing wine as a hobby. Having minimum oenological knowledge but a real love and passion for wine, Yiannis and Alexia Christoudia attempted to make their own wine from grapes they grew themselves. Initially, their friends and relatives loved the wine they produced and thus they decided to expand and create a small winery. It was originally named KRELAN and used to produce Tyhikos (Saint of Luck) wines.
Recently it was renamed as Ktima Christoudia (Christoudia Estate) and it is located in one of the most picturesque villages of Cyprus, Kato Drys.
All Yiannis and Alexia children’s share the same passion for quality wine and follow suit. They contribute in their own way to the winery by taking increasingly more important roles. The winery has now reached a production of 80000 bottles annually.
A donkey in Cyprus symbolizes hard work, patience and love which we put into our wines in every stage of the process.
