Fantastic Russian wines and where to find them The truth is that not all regions of Russia have snow all year round. Some regions have a favorable climate with many sunny days and mild winters. As you may have guessed, the wine-producing regions of Russia are located in the south. To be precise: between the Black and Caspian Seas. There are several regions in this part of the country, each with a unique soil composition, geographic location and climate. The only thing that unites them is the number of sunny and frost-free days. Krasnodar wine region (Kuban) Krasnodar wine region (Kuban) Its convenient location on the Black Sea coast and mild climate allow the grapes to reach full ripeness. In this region, the most favorable conditions for the vine: the proximity of the sea, about 200 warm days a year, enough sun. Here are such wineries as "Myskhako", "SORT", "Valley of Lefkadia" and "Chateau Le Grand Vostok". The variety of grape varieties grown here is huge: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Aligote, Chardonnay, Riesling, Marselan, etc. Territory of Dagestan The southernmost wine-growing region of Russia and another historical wine-making region. Mineral and oily, the wines of Dagestan can serve as an ideal drink for an aperitif. The choice is huge: white and red wines, dry and semi-sweet. Interesting blends and local varietal wines will amaze you with their mild taste and pleasant fruitiness. In this area, there is a strong tendency to preserve the traditions of the past, so local wineries produce mainly autochthonous wines: Saperavi, Rkatsiteli, Black Kizlyar, Narma, etc. Stavropol Another part of this region, which is known for wine production. According to historians, the first wine was produced here in the first half of the 19th century. The fertile soils and mild climate have made it possible to grow many varieties of grapes in the area. Stavropol is mainly known for its red wines. Rostov region Don Valley is the birthplace of bright, fruity and mineral wines. This region is characterized by hot and dry summers. Winters are usually quite severe, but this does not prevent Rostov winemakers from producing high-quality and interesting products. This area is known for the fact that mainly autochthonous grape varieties grow here: Tsimlyansky black, Kumshatsky, Krasnostop Zolotovsky, Plechistik, etc. Volgograd One of the most difficult regions for growing grapes - Volgograd - is a semi-desert with extremely hot summers, strong winds and rainy winters . However, even here, Russian winemakers manage to produce decent products. The area is known for its hybrid grape varieties that can withstand extreme temperature fluctuations. Volgograd wines have good potential for the future. If you want to discover the tastes of Russian wines, we recommend starting your acquaintance with the Krasnodar wine-growing region (Kuban). This is the area of the oldest wineries. Production is mainly carried out according to the rules of European winemaking. Visit the online store "Wine Russian House" and choose the bottles you like. You and your guests will be pleasantly surprised!
Russia continues to prove that it is a country with great potential for winemaking. Adopting the best traditions of the Old World, she manages to bring something new to the usual tastes and aromas. However, when it comes to real tasting, the question arises: can all brands of wine from Russia be trusted? Let's try to figure it out together! Winemaking in Russia has just begun to revive from the ashes of the so-called "dry law". Wineries that have been abandoned and closed are starting to reopen. Independent wine lovers are trying their hand at this industry. There are not many companies in Russia that produce wine. And there are even fewer companies that make really good products that are worth attention and money. Here is our selection of the best Russian wine brands: Myskhako SORT Lefkadia Valley Chateau Le Grand Vostok Why are we confident in this choice? Firstly, we ourselves visit all the wineries and try their products. This is how we select the best products for the Wine of the Russian House online store. Secondly, we choose the wine we like to drink. And finally, each of these wineries has something interesting and unique to offer - whether it's a long history or top quality wines. Myskhako One of the oldest wineries in the country. A bottle of "Myskhako" is an excellent choice for both a luxurious anniversary dinner and a meeting with friends. The company offers a wide range of products: dry red or white, rosé and sparkling wines. Located on the Black Sea coast, Myskhako remains a magnet for local tourists who want to get acquainted with the secrets of winemaking. SORT A young winery with great potential. SORT focuses on the production of varietal wines. Only four types of grapes are grown on the territory of the vineyard: Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay - for white wines, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon - for reds. Brand motto: "Everyone can find their favorite variety." Lefkadia Valley Lefkadia Valley is not just a winery, but a wine paradise. This is the perfect place to spend a weekend away from the city noise and crowds of people. Those who do not have the opportunity to visit Lefkadia Valley in the near future can still enjoy their high quality wines. The brand offers both well-known varieties of wine such as Merlot, Riesling or Cabernet Franc, as well as local wines that are not represented by any European company or winemaker - Rkatsiteli and Saperavi. Buy bottles on the Wines of the Russian House website and try the high-quality products of Russian winemaking. Chateau Le Grand Vostok Located in the North Caucasus, this large winery owns 250 hectares of land. The company adheres to the traditions of French winemaking, inviting experts from France, purchasing vines in European countries, introducing production ideas and ordering French oak barrels. Chateau Le Grand Vostok is famous for its delicious varietal wines: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Aligote. Be sure to try wines made from local grape varieties - for example, Krasnostop.

Although the history of Russian winemaking goes back to ancient times, its current state is greatly influenced by the traditions of the Old World. However, Russian products have their own character, especially when it comes to white wines. As you know, white wines reflect the main features of the territory in which they are produced: soil, climate, weather. Despite its long history, Russia is still one of the most underestimated and unexplored territories in the world. What is so unique about Russian white wines and why are they about to become a growing trend? Russian winemakers grow mainly famous grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Aligote. Tempted to explore the many shades of a familiar drink? Try it with "Wine of the Russian House". Our store presents the best examples of Russian white wines. Adoption of old traditions and techniques. The oily taste of oak wines or delicious appassimento style wines - you will find it all in Russia. Interesting varietal wines and unusual blends. Brand new grape varieties (unknown in Europe) that allow wine lovers to expand their experience and experience more flavors. Affordable prices. Unlike popular wineries in France or Italy, the cost of a bottle of Russian white wine remains moderate. Once again, after decades of decline, Russian winemakers are starting to revive the industry. The anti-alcohol campaign carried out in the 1980s had a huge impact on vineyards and wineries. Most of them were closed, prices rose, and a whole generation was deprived of good wines. Gradually, this trend is changing for the better. Interest in Russian white wines is beginning to grow among the population. The products of local wineries participate in international competitions, receive high marks from experts and even get into the wine lists of many restaurants. We can see impressive progress in an industry that has only just begun. What does a typical Russian white wine taste like? It's hard to say, because there are dozens of nuances that affect the taste. One thing is for sure: among all the options, you are sure to find your favorite. Discover the palette of quality Russian wines with Wine Russian House: Sauvignon Blanc A classic grape variety used to produce a crisp and refreshing wine with bright acidity. Sauvignon Blanc can be harvested fairly early, making it an excellent choice for most areas. In Russia, Sauvignon Blanc is used in varietal wines and excellent blends with local vines. Chardonnay The king of Russian winemaking and the most popular type of white wine. Depending on the production process, it can be fruity or buttery, light or full-bodied. Riesling Another popular grape variety that can reveal different sides - in Russia, Riesling can be either dry (with caramel notes) or semi-sweet (with a pleasant honey and candy flavor). Gewurztraminer Fragrant Gewurztraminer is a grape that develops its potential in cooler climates. Russian soils and weather give this wine a subtle taste of grapefruit, rose petals and herbs. Rkatsiteli Arriving from Georgia, this grape variety is something new for Europeans. Juicy, bright and expressive, it will be an ideal discovery for wine lovers. The world of white wines is bigger than we can imagine. If you want to understand the mysterious Russian soul, there is no better way to do it than high quality wines!
Let's be honest, Russia is rarely associated with wine. Most people will be surprised to learn that vineyards can grow in the southern part of the country. In addition, one of the main wine-growing regions of the country is located on the same latitude as Bordeaux - the birthplace of expensive and exquisite red wines. Does this mean that Russian red wines are worth trying? Definitely. Since 2006, when well-known wineries began to adopt European processes and production technologies, the quality of Russian wines has grown significantly. Passionate wine lovers recommend never being afraid of new regions and constantly expanding your experience and knowledge about wines. Russia is a "dark horse" in the big players' game and a big threat to both the Old and New Worlds. Some Russian wines have become regular competitors in international wine competitions. They often win medals and prizes, receive high marks from the jury and recognition from high-class wine guides and organizations. On the soils of Russia there are various varieties of grapes - from common to unique: World grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc Autochthonous grape varieties: Krasnostop, Tsymlyansky, Sibirkovy, Poukhlyakovsky, Kokur, etc. Modern Russian red wines are very different from what they were in the past. We can trace several important stages in the history of Russian winemaking. All of them have had a huge impact on the current state of the market. The traditions of winemaking in Russia began to revive only after the anti-alcohol campaign of Gorbachev in 1985 and the economic crisis of the 1990s. However, a lot of effort, knowledge and money are invested in this process. The gradual increase in vineyard area, new equipment and the experience of professional winemakers have made it possible to create a certain reputation for Russian red wines - first among local residents, and then abroad. Today, Russian red wines are not perceived through the prism of skepticism. They are worthy competitors in international wine competitions, they have a unique taste and a relatively low price. They are included in the wine lists of restaurants and will be a wonderful treat and discovery for your guests. The popularity of Russian red wines continues to grow, primarily due to the wide variety of varietal wines and blends. Semi-sweet or dry, the familiar Cabernet Sauvignon or the unknown Redstop - you will be happy to get to know him at least once! Like other red wines around the world, Russian produce can be both expensive and affordable. We, at the "Wine Russian House", select the best samples of Russian winemaking with an optimal balance of price and quality. Visit our online store and discover the enigmatic aromas of familiar grape varieties. We carefully select all the bottles and taste all the wines ourselves. So we guarantee that you will enjoy every glass!
