The Republic of Moldova is a wine country. We have a vineyard area of 112,000 hectares with over 100 varieties of grapes. Most of them are european, but we have some characteristic only to our country. The most popular are: Aligote, Muscat, Pinot, Chardonnay, Feteasca, Sauvignon, Traminer, Riesling, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot-Noir and Malbec.
We also have a lot of traditions linked to wine, one of which we transformed into a National Holiday. Do you know which holiday am I speaking about? The National Wine Day! It celebrates the end of the harvest of grapes and the crafting of the new wine (Tulburel).
