Rediscover Moldova. Wine Road – Day 2

During our second day we visited 2 wineries, if to be more precise it was one winery and  the wine-making school in Nisporeni.

Asconi Winery

It was founded in 1994. The name of the winery derives from the name of the owner Alexei Sirbu.  The property of the winery includes: 407 ha vineyard, 80 ha recently planted, but their aim is to get a 800 ha vineyard.

This winery produces approximately 3 mln bottles per year and most of them are for export. There are 5 lines of wines: Kiss Me Now (nice name for a wine), Sine Qua Non, Asconi Gold, Asconi Grape and Limited Asconi.

Before export, every tank or barrel is checked once per week (they are the only one in Moldova who have FOSS Wine Scan) and as well, they offer a 18 months guaranty for the exported wines.

Wine-making School in Nisporeni

Actually it is not a school only for this purpose, it is a professional school, but with the financial support of Austrian Government a project in this sense was implemented. Every year this course is taken by approximately 25 students. They learn not just the theory of planting  and taking care of a vineyard, but can actually apply all their knowledge into practice doing  the whole process of making wine from A to Z. Students at the practice lessons are involved into the production process. They have their own brand of wine “Crescendo” (growth).

41. Vinul Crescendo de Nisporeni

The school has 5 ha of vineyard. They are the first in Republic of Moldova who have produced Rose Wine from Feteasca Neagra.

38. Tulburel de Nisporeni
