The Viorica grape variety is a variety with individuality: it appeared in Moldova in 1969, following a successful winemaking experiment. “The Parents” of Viorica are two red grape varieties – Seibel and Aleatico. Paradoxically the result of crossing was a white grape variety. Certainly, Viorica de Purcari is a noble class jewel.

The white wine Viorica de Purcari is a sensory explosion: it has the aroma of acacia and basil flowers, it is fresh, easy and memorable. The golden color, with bright amber shades, is complemented wonderfully with its balanced and velvety taste and the fine taste of muscatel. Viorica conquers through its complex aroma and subtle finesse.

Viorica wine is made entirely from Viorica grapes, harvested manually and vinified by the traditional method.

By the end of the twelfth century, Moldova’s wine industry had become a major sector of Southeastern Europe’s economy. While the whole region has favorable conditions for viniculture, specific areas are especially fertile for growing the most full-bodied grapes. The village of Purcari and the Agon Zograf Monastery vineyards lay at the heart of this special terroir.
Recognizing similarities in the soil and climate with the Bordeaux region, French settlers entered into partnerships with the monastery and began cultivating Purcari’s special vintages in the eighteenth century.
