The an­nual wine festival will also see some changes this year with the tra­di­tional ‘vraka­man’, a gi­ant statue of a man clad in the Cypriot folk at­tire, meet­ing the mod­ern era, as he is de­picted in the posters tak­ing a selfie.

Dur­ing the wine festival, men in the tra­di­tional at­tire will walk around the gar­den and take self­ies with vis­i­tors who are ex­pected to break a new record due to the in­creased tourist ar­rivals on the is­land.

Vis­i­tors can taste wines of­fered for free by the lo­cal winer­ies, taste tra­di­tional dishes, and be en­ter­tained by the var­i­ous mu­sic and dance events.
