Producer Profile

In 1827, Emperor of Russia Nicholas I issued a special decree granting Purcari the status of the first specialized winery in Bessarabia. It was named in honor of one of the founders originating from Germany – Harmizone. Since then, the owners of Purcari have become Moldovan boyars (barons) Dancila and Clot, but also other Germans, Russians and French. Two decades later, at the Agricultural Bessarabian Fair, Purcari received its first gold medal.

Saperavi is considered one of the most ancient red grape varieties. Saperavi, which means “dye” or “dyer”, is one of few famous grape varieties that have red grape pulp besides the red grape skin, the fact that makes the wine colour being deep ruby.
