the heart of Ukrainian winemaking!
Odesa Region is the leader of the Ukrainian winemaking industry that has the potential rivalling that of Bordeaux, Piedmont, Champagne, and the Rhine Valley. The wine history of Odesa Region began in the times of antiquity, when ancient Greeks established their first colonies north of the Black Sea around 600 B.C.
The Odesa terroir lies within the so-called “wine latitude” that owes its one-of-a-kind nature to exposure to both continental and marine climates, coastal salt lakes, rich southern chernozem soils, and plenty of sunny days in the year.
Odesa Region bestowed on the world its unique local grape varieties and offers the perfect conditions for growing the classic European varieties: Chardonnay, Muscat, Traminer, Cabernet, Bastardo, Pinot Noir, and others.
