a new wine from an old land

Pripa vineyards, comprise 17,5ha situated on a southwest exposure hill of Dniester, part of the Hamza Valley. 

This land is part of the PGI ”Stefan Voda”. We returned to this soil the genuine vine species that have grown in this area since the nineteenth century — Feteasca Neagra and Rara Neagra, but also planted vines of Merlot, Saperavi, Feteasca Alba and Feteasca Regala.

Right "after the hill", the Dniester flows through the lagoon into the Black sea. The air currents and the topography of the place form a unique, soft micro-climate. The 8% inclination of the slope, protects the vine from the torrid sun, the heavy winds, and frosting. Here, the grapes ripe homogeneously and keep the local mildness. The stones and the clay, create special labyrinths for the roots, nourishing the grapes with peace and long forgotten truths of the earth.

The wine is produced exclusively from our own grapes. The wine is maturated in veritable Moldovan oak barrels, crafted by three brothers, coopers in 3 generations, originating from Ulmu village. From 2016 harvest we produced the first experimental wine, bottled in a limited edition series: Saperavi — 84 bottles, Feteasca Neagra — 480 bottles, Rara Neagra — 270 bottles. Each bottle is 100% authentic in every aspect.
