Wines from Moldova are increasingly in demand on the Romanian market. Recently, wineries in the country presented their products at the “Republica Moldova Presents” exhibition, which took place in Brașov, Romania.

The wineries Aroma, Enoteria Platon, Chateau Vartely Winery, Vinuri de Comrat, Combinatul de Vinuri “CRICOVA” S.A., Podgoria Vin, Maurt, Aurelius, Javgur Winery, Basavin Winery, Tomai Vinex, Doina Vin, Vale Winery, Salcuta participated in the event , Fautor, Rădăcini, Imperial Vin, Invincom, Purcari and Domeniile Cuza.
Our winemakers had the opportunity to present their new products, but also to establish partnership relations with winemakers and businessmen from Romania.
The producers brought the most delicate and fragrant seasonal wines – white and rosé – to the opening, and the guests enjoyed fine and fresh drinks in an elegant event.
We are happy to share just a few of the happy moments from the Spring Wine Opening. We are excited to meet again in this context, but until then, we invite you to revisit what it was like at the 2023 edition in the video material below.
We introduce you to the first divine from the Republic of Moldova with PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status – Divine Călărași Legenda VS.
Produced from distillates matured in oak barrels for at least three years, this exclusive liqueur possesses an impressive bouquet of complex floral-fruity aromas, but also subtle notes of vanilla, chocolate and honey that provide a long and pleasant aftertaste.
The divine was created according to the classic technology, entirely from wine distillates of European white grape varieties, cultivated and harvested on the producer’s own vineyards with a Protected Geographical Indication. The conditions of the geographical area in the heart of Codriri in the central part of Moldova offer optimal conditions for ripening grapes.
We urge you to discover the potential of this divine and appreciate its organoleptic qualities.
We are happy to tell you that at the Concorso Enologico Internazionale Città del Vino 2023 Moldovan wines were appreciated and awarded with gold and Grand Gold medals.
According to the organizers, around 60 experts and representatives of various sectors participate in the tasting sessions of this competition every year, including oenologists, importers, technicians and journalists from Italy and abroad, who are given the opportunity to get to know more the participating wines and the territories they come from.
In this competition, ONVV supported, with the help of strategic partner USAID, 68 wine samples from 22 producing companies.
The wineries came home from this competition with a total of 17 medals – 5 Grand Gold and 12 Gold medals.
We congratulate and wish them continued success to the companies Fautor Winery, Vinuri Ialoveni SA, Timbrus Purcari Estate, Combinatul de Vinuri “CRICOVA” S.A., Vinaria din Vale, Chateau Vartely Winery and Asconi Winery!
