The glorious moments of our history: After Bessarabia was joined to Russia, by a decree of the local authorities, issued in 1827, in Purcari was created the first specialized winemaking company.

Negru de Purcari, was gained its first gold medal. The Triumph of Negru de Purcari. In 1878, the Purcari winemakers brought their wines to the Paris World Exhibition. During the closed-doors tasting session, the majority of the jury gave preference to a dry, densely-colored red wine - they were sure it was a new wine from the famous Bordeaux region. They were surprised to learn that the drink came from a tiny, unknown village called Purcari, situated on the Nistru River. Negru de Purcari earned the highest form of recognition on the international arena by being awarded the Gold Medal at Paris World Exhibition. The newest step in the history of Purcari wines starts in 2003, when the "Vinaria Purcari" company was created. The main purpose of creating the company was to revive the production of unique, historic wine blends, such as Negru de Purcari and Rosu de Purcari. The production facility was rebuilt in the Purcari area - a region, where the quality of the soil and the climate create ideal conditions for viticulture. The Purcari production facility was fully revived and upgraded, and the old cellars, built as far back as 1827, were renovated. Today the cellars are among the oldest and most famous in Moldova. The Purcari estate is one of Moldova's showcase attractions. Today, Purcari wines hold more than 80 top awards from specialized international contests and wine tastings for the quality and taste of wine produced.|
