In Crimea will be presented wine from grapes, which King Vladimir communed
At the V Yalta International Economic Forum (YIEF), which runs from April 17 to April 20, wine from a special grape variety will be presented. The fact is that the variety of this grape grows near Chersonesos, and it is supposed that it was from this sort that the wine that Prince Vladimir used to commune at the baptism of Russia was made.
This conclusion was made because the DNA of this variety does not coincide with any other. In 2018, the first harvest of this grape was obtained. In ancient times, it was made from red wine. Today it is called “Chersonesus”:
– Wine produced from the oldest autochthonous grape variety of Crimea will be presented for the first time this year at the Yalta International Economic Forum. … “In 2018, the first harvest of this variety was obtained and for the first time since Byzantium wine was produced,” said a well-known local winemaker Valery Zakharyin.
However, wine production was complicated by the fact that modern methods of processing wine materials and production methods can deprive it of special properties. Therefore, to create wine were used ancient technology.
