About Moldovan wine industry
Moldova can be easily found on a map of the South-Eastern Europe by the Black Sea, between Ukraine and Romania. This is the land that has the shape of a bunch grape.
The history of wine production in Moldova is at least 4000 years old, beginning with the ancient times.
Wine production has passed through various stages of development. One of them was the ancient stage, when Greek settlers shared the secret of fermentation with the locals. The Romans followed, bringing with them their experience in winemaking. In the Middle Ages, high-ranking Moldovan royal servants started entire businesses with vineyards and small wineries where wine was stored and processed. Proud and self-important cupbearers were responsible with their own lives for the wine choices at the royal table.
In the 14th century Moldovan wine started to be sold overseas. The Orthodox Church played an important role in this process, as wine was often used in religious rituals by monasteries and churches of the Grand Duchy of Moscow.
Along with Bessarabia becoming part of the Russian Empire, winemaking started to adopt a noble air through the establishment of wine estates and the planting of special vine cuttings brought from France. The result was soon evident, with Bessarabia becoming the number one wine producer in the Russian Empire. During the same period of time, the small wine growing regions became internationally known. One example is Purcari wines that won gold medals at the Paris World Exhibition in 1878 and the Romanov royal family started a company in their name that delivered Purcari wines to the English royal court.
Today, Moldova is proud of its many unique tourist attractions such as the Cricova cellars and Mileştii Mici which have the largest wine collection in the world, and the unique galleries from the Brăneşti cellars and the beautiful Purcari castle – all awaiting to share their wines and historical secrets with visitors.
Tasting our wine today, we are particularly proud of its past and we believe in a successful future of its new history.
