The Avantgarde Russian Wine
A very careful selection of grapes allows us to make a new and perfectly balanced Russian wine. Handpicked harvest, controlled fermentation in stainless steel, wood, cement or clay brings out the best character of each variety. Barrel ageing, when required by the wine and vintage, is done with no new oak, so as to preserve the spirit and smoothness of our wines. We strive for a modern, organic and honest approach to our vines and Likuria wines are a testament to this new era of Russian winemaking.
Lefkadia winery is a family enterprise established in the Krasnodar region, Krymsk county, Russia since 2006. Qualiry red, white and rose as well as sparkling wines made using the classical Champenoise ans Cuve Close methods are produced at the winery. Lefkadia's vineyards spread through the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains and, separated from the warmth of the sea by two mountain ranges are at the aroma of wines produced here since more than a centure. A variety of soils - clay, sandy, argillo-calcareous, chalk ones - sometimes changing every 5-10 meters, can be found throughout the valley. Due to this combination of climate peculiarities and soil varieties each one of our wines is unique in its character and style. The winery uses a gravitation technique that almost completely excludes pumping of grape must and wine. Bespoke Russian and French oak barrels offer the finishing touches and uncover the potential of our micro terroirs.
