The love of wine is an integral part of Moldovan history and culture. Our mixed heritage combined with our Russian influences have created a unique attitude towards wine and whilst the Russian Tsars were enjoying Moldovan wine at their banquets for centuries, in Moldova, we were enjoying wine at the table, along with good food and company. In fact we have a saying…..Hai Narok…which sums up our attitude to life in general. It is filled with meaning and when expressed at the beginning of a meal, with good wine it conveys wishes of good eating, good drinking, good health, happiness, enjoyment and contentment. It is a true expression of our Moldovan temperament and our love of sensuous pleasures.
It is also interesting that historically, we have a strong connection with both Greek and Roman culture. Recently discovered fossils prove that winemaking in Moldova goes back to 2800 B.C. Greeks, who settled on the coast of the Black Sea in the third century BC had an impact on the development of viticulture and vinification. The Romans also exerted their influence when Southern Moldova was part of the Roman Empire during the reign of Emperor Traianus.
We share the same line of latitude with Burgundy (47 degrees north of the Equator) and we also share their integral understanding of the concept of Terroir. Our Continental Climate (gently influenced by the Black Sea), which provides short, relatively mild winters and long hot summers, our specific soil and our noble grape varieties, combine to produce truly outstanding wines.
Amaro de la Valea Perjei
We take great pride in our iconic wine – Amaro.
This wine is created from carefully selected grapes from vineyards in the micro-zones of Valea Roman and Valea Perjei. The production of this wine is identical to that of Amarone della Valpolicella. The grapes are dried for three to four months during which time they lose 30% of their initial weight. This leads to increased aromatic substances and tannin enrichment, as well as increased sugar levels of 26% to 28%. Amaro de la Valea Perjei is made from 70% Bastardo-Magaraci, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has an intense deep ruby colour and powerful, complex aromas of ripe fruits, prunes, morocco, vanilla and spices which follow through on the palate. It is a rich, powerful, velvety wine with excellent body.
