Vlasides Winery

ο Οινοποιείο μας βρίσκεται στο χωριό Κοιλάνι, στα κρασοχώρια Λεμεσού. Σε αυτό παράγουμε οίνους υψηλής ποιότητας από τις ερυθρές ποικιλίες Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon και Merlot, καθώς και από τις λευκές ποικιλίες Ξυνιστέρι και Sauvignon blanc. Τα κρασιά μας παράγονται από τοπικά σταφύλια της περιοχής, τα οποία καλλιεργούνται στα 160 στρέμματα των ιδιόκτητών μας αμπελώνων και σε άλλους συνεργαζόμενους αμπελώνες, κυρίως ντόπιων παραγωγών. Οι αμπελώνες του οινοποιείου εκτείνονται στην ευρύτερη περιοχή του χωριού Κοιλάνι, νότια του Τροόδους, σε υψόμετρο που ξεκινά από τα 700 μέτρα και φτάνει στα 1000 μέτρα, στις κορυφές του βουνού Αφάμης. Όλα τα σταφύλια που προέρχονται από συνεργαζόμενους αμπελώνες και χρησιμοποιούνται για οινοποίηση ελέγχονται διεξοδικά από το Σοφοκλή Βλασίδη, με σκοπό τη διασφάλιση της ποιότητας.Το 2012 το Οινοποιείο Βλασίδη μετεγκαταστάθηκε στο αμπελοτόπι Κολώνη, στην καρδιά των ιδιόκτητών του γραμμικών αμπελώνων. Ο ενιαίος αμπελώνας 50 στρεμμάτων που περιτριγυρίζει το οινοποιείο βρίσκεται δύο χιλιόμετρα έξω από το Κοιλάνι στο δρόμο προς το Βουνί. Η μοντέρνα αρχιτεκτονική του κτηρίου συνδυάζει το ξύλο και την παραδοσιακή πέτρα της περιοχής με σύγχρονα υλικά, όπως μέταλλο και εμφανές μπετόν. Ξεχωριστά σημεία του κτηρίου αποτελούν ο χώρος υποδοχής και γευσιγνωσίας, καθώς και ο χώρος φύλαξης των βαρελιών και των φιαλών (κάβες), ο οποίος έχει κτιστεί μέσα στο βουνό. Οι σύγχρονες εγκαταστάσεις και ο νέος εξοπλισμός έχουν κάνει το έργο του Σοφοκλή Βλασίδη ευκολότερο και αποδοτικότερο, συμβάλλοντας στη βελτίωση της ποιότητας των κρασιών και στην αύξηση της συνολικής παραγωγής φιαλών, η οποία φθάνει σήμερα τις 120 000 ετησίως.
