Wines from Purcari Winery
Purcari Winery produces still and sparkling wines under the Chateau Purcari brand. The wine assortment comprises 6 collections: 1827, Limited Edition, Vintage, Sapiens, Nocturne and Sparkling Wines. The still wines are made in collaboration with the Italian oenologist Federico Giotto, while the sparkling wines specialist is Jerome Barret, a French champagne expert.
The 1827 collection honours the greatest European wine cultures: you may want to transpose yourself to the sunny Italy with a Pinot Grigio or to get inspiration from the sophisticated France with a Cabernet Sauvignon; in any case, Purcari 1827 will be the noblest choice. At the same time, the collection includes indigenous varieties of wines: our dear Rara Neagra – an element of national pride – can bring you instantly Home. If choosing only one variety seems hard to you, enjoy our Rosé – a must try of the 1827 collection.

Our wines are produced from exclusively local grown grapes, the total area of the vineyards being equal to 500 hectares. The grape varieties range comprises international varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, Merlot as well as indigenous varieties, for instance Viorica and Rara Neagra.
The vineyards are located in the Stefan Voda Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) area, in the southeast Moldova, which guarantees the high quality of Purcari wines. The unique characteristics of the geographical position, climate and soil are the secret of our wines, which seduce through colour, flavour and taste.
