STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

While you may not have heard much about it, take it from us that Moldovan wine is a star on the rise. 2020 was a breakout year for the country with a number of its wineries performing well in the Decanter World Wine Awards. Gitana is regarded as one of its top producers, with an impressive 390ha under vine and a wide range of grapes in its portfolio. Saperavi is the most popular and distinctive grape here, almost single-handedly put the region back on the wine map. If you’re looking to try something new, here is a good place to start.
