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:
- 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 Russian House Wine 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.
