The Spring Harvest of Villa Tinta Medals


Congratulations on the new victories of Villa Tinta, the WTA nominee in the category of The Visiting Card of the Country/Must Visit. Over the past months, Villa Tinta has received more than ten medals at international and Ukrainian wine competitions.

Situated in the picturesque Yalpug Lake Valley, Villa Tinta owns 550 hectares of vineyards (and additionally processes grapes grown on 600 hectares of partner vineyards). The unique terroir finds its expression in wines made from European varieties as well as local ones like Odesa Black and Sukholimansky. The winery offers a range of wines, including Villa Tinta (dry table wines from local and European grape varieties), Tintarella (sparkling wines made using the Charmat-Martinotti method), and Tinta (semi-sweet  cuvée wines). The quality of Villa Tintas wines, which is regularly confirmed by results in professional competitions, is ensured not only by the exceptional terroir, but also by top-notch equipment and highly skilled winemakers.

Villa Tinta actively promotes its wines in Ukraine and internationally. This spring, the company, alongside the finest Ukrainian wines at the Wines of Ukraine collective stand, participated in ProWein in Düsseldorf, Vyno dienos in Vilnius, and the London Wine Fair, the official exhibition partner of Drinks+ and the Wine Travel Awards. Furthermore, their exceptional wines garnered significant attention at Wine&Spirits Ukraine and Vinnytsia Wine Days in Ukraine.
