Abstract

Kantara wines were being produced by OA Ltd, in Lefkosa, known as Nicosia prior to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. The wines were made from fine grapes grown on the island. A problem, however, was that these wines had at least a 10% alcohol content, and 98% of the population of northern Cyprus adhered to Islam, a religion which prohibits the drinking of alcohol. An embargo prevented the export of Kantara wines to the Republic of Cyprus or anywhere else. Executives were seeking ideas. A set of transparencies (396-124-7) is available to accompany the case.
