Best Wine Day in Moldova
Despite the fact that he was the 13th in a row, it was the best Wine Day in Chisinau for its thirteen-year history.
Guests of the holiday received a spectacle, they could try a lot of good and just great wines. According to the information received from the producers, in two days about 95 thousand bottles of wine worth 5 million lei were sold at the Grand National Assembly Square.
At the end of the second day of the holiday, buyers “swept” everything off the shelves. The winners were the most thrifty, such as, for example, the Cricova plant. When colleagues at the stands in the neighborhood lamented how little wine they brought, the Cricova winemakers had a very good choice, including even the rare Rara neagra wine in Moldova, which I bought for my American guest (I liked it very much).
“It is estimated that over 2 thousand foreign tourists visited the Wine Day (the total capacity of the capital’s hotel fund is about 4 thousand people; they say that there were no empty seats),” says Dmitry Munteanu, director of the National Bureau of Vine and Wine. – According to the police, in two days about 130 thousand people visited the square. We get good reviews about the holiday. Our guests liked the discovery, the fanfare, the light show, the concerts, and the opportunity to occupy children in the creative zone, and watch the barrels being burned, the potters chase away jugs, interesting contests, such as dancing on barrels, etc. .
Above the theatrical show worked a team of specialists under the direction of director Diana Dikusare. We discussed the selection of artists for evening concerts together. However, the composition of the speakers was also influenced by the ability of each artist to come, as not everyone could. Winemakers said that this year’s concert was wonderful. In general, the holiday as a whole turned out. We will discuss with the participants what we need to work on in order to make the Day of Wine even better next year. It is important that this year the School of Wine had a quarter more visitors than in the past – only 450 people expanded their knowledge of wine.
The authors of these lines were most attracted to the new participants of the holiday. For example, Boiar grup. “Our company has been working in the market for 11 years. It’s just that manufacturers directly participated earlier, and now we are a distributor and representative of Moldavskii standart and Tighina-vin,” said Vladimir Staver, commercial director of the company. “We presented a wide range of products – Wine that Alianta-vin manufactures for us, Moldavskii standart divines, Tighina-vin still wines, including our brand name Boiar. We have been working on liquors for 10 years with Oprica-invest, a rubber company. Together we have created two new trading stamps: Rafaeli – for cr m-liquors and Henri Snaps -. for schnapps Previously we worked with other producers on Divino, but the past five years working with the most densely Moldavskii standart, presenting its products at trade shows. ”
At last fully participated in the Day of Wine, probably the most southern Moldavian winery AurVin. If earlier his wines sometimes appeared on this holiday, only complementing the products of the Nisporeni winery Nis-Struguras, with which it is included in the Dionis-club group of companies. Until now, wines from AurVin could not be sold in Moldova, because The company is located in the free economic zone.
“People have long been asking and waiting for these products in the domestic market,” says the commercial director of the DK-Intertrade management company, Radu Yesanu. – We plan to put products under AurVin TM in stores in November. These are selectat wines (selected, from grapes from own plantations) in the middle price category (about 50 lei per bottle in retail). And those who do not know about us, will be able to get acquainted with the products of one of the leaders of the Moldovan winemaking. Over the past five to six years, our company has consistently been among the top three exporters of bottled wines. Wines from AurVin won about 100 medals at various international competitions, including in the UK, Germany, France, Belgium.
Long not seen in the widespread wine trade from Vinaria-Cainari. However, there was a lively tasting on its stand and brisk trade went on. The general director of the company, Valeriu Cojocaru, only had time to get bottles of wines from the boxes: because these wines deserve special attention. We decided to develop our own sales and are preparing to open branded boutiques in Chisinau. To enter the market, the brand Domeniile Cainari was developed in a new way, under which only high-quality wines are bottled. the way is to produce only wines aged in oak barrels. Currently, select category wines of the 2011 harvest are sold (shelf price is 50-60 lei / bottles), and in the premium segment – Negru de Cainari, 2006 and Alb de Cainari, 2006 (with a three-year aging in barrels) – 100-120 lei each, but they deserve higher
