For some people, who still picture Russia as a land of eternal winter and cold, the information about Russian vineyards may be shocking. The truth is that not all parts of Russia are covered with snow the whole year-round. Some regions have a favorable climate with lots of sunny days and mild winters. As you may guess, the wine area in Russia can be found in the south. To be precise: between the Black and the Caspian Seas. There are several regions in this part of the country, each of them has unique soil composition, geographical position, and climate. The only thing that unites them all is the amount of sunny and frost-free days.
- Krasnodar wine region (Kuban)
- Area of Dagestan
- The region of Rostov
Russia keeps proving to be a country with a huge potential for winemaking. Adopting the best traditions of the Old World, it manages to bring something new to the familiar tastes and flavors. However, when coming to actual tasting, the question arises: should all wine brands from Russia be trusted? Let’s try to find out together! Winemaking in Russia has just started to revive from the ashes of the so-called “dry law”. Wineries that had been deserted and closed, begin to open again. Independent wine enthusiasts try their skills in this industry. There aren’t too many companies in Russia that produce wine. And there are even fewer companies that make actually good products worth attention and money. Here’s our top selection of the best Russian wine brands:
- Lefkadia Valley
- Chateau Le Grand Vostok
Although the history of Russian winemaking can be traced back to ancient times, its modern state has a huge influence of the Old World traditions. 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 where its produced: soil, climate, and weather. Despite its long history, Russia still remains one of the most underrated and undiscovered terroirs in the world. What is so unique in Russian white wines and why they are about to turn into a growing trend?
- Russian winemakers cultivate mostly well-known grape varieties, like Chardonnay, Riesling, and Aligote. Tempted to explore numerous shades of the familiar drink? Give it a try with Wine Russian House. We have the best examples of Russian white wines in our shop.
- Adoption of old traditions and techniques. The buttery taste of oaked wines or delightful appassimento-style wines – you can 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 get acquainted with a bigger amount of flavors.
- Affordable prices. Unlike popular wineries from France or Italy, the cost of a bottle of Russian white wine is still moderate.
Let’s be honest, Russia is rarely associated with wines. Most people will be surprised to find out that vines can actually grow in the southern part of the country. In addition to that, one of the main winemaking regions of the country is located at the same latitude as Bordeaux – the homeland of expensive and exquisite red wines. Does that mean that Russian red wines are worth a try? Definitely. Since 2006, when the famous wineries started to adopt the European processes and techniques of production, the quality of Russian wines grew significantly. Passionate wine lovers recommend to never be afraid of new regions and constantly expand your experience and knowledge about wines. Russia is a “dark horse” in the game of big players and a great threat to both the Old and New Worlds. Some Russian wines became usual competitors at international wine contests. They frequently win medals and prizes, get high scores from the jury, and being acknowledged by top-rated wine guides and organizations. On the soils of Russia, there can be found different grape varieties – from universally loved to unique types: Global grape varieties:
- Cabernet Sauvignon,
- Cabernet Franc,
- Kokur, etc.
