Purcari Winery: Few people today have not heard about the legendary triumph of Negru de Purcari. It was in the mid-19th century that Europe heard for the first time about this amazing, unusually dark wine of an intense hue. In 1878 Negru de Purcari participated in the Paris Exhibition and received the highest award- the gold medal. The best wine tasters of the world were charmed by the gracious flavor and dense, saturated taste of this wine.

The steady quality is certified by the glitter of numerous medals won at international contents, which help recuperate the lost glory of Moldovan winemaking. However, the most important thing is that the people of this area cherish the history of the place. The legend of this great wine will please the gourmets, and in time it will only become more beautiful and acquire new layers of mystery.
