Picturesque vineyards are spread out on a plateau along a steep cliff. The Black Sea, Pitsunda pines, shell, rapan are the symbols of the winery, which are reflected on the labels of the Divnomorskoye Estate wine collection. This is the place where enogastronomic ideas are formed and aesthetic ideas are formed.

Respect for nature has been one of the main operating principles from the very beginning. Today, 21 grape varieties are grown here, and small areas have also been allocated for experimental plantings of “Vermentino”, “Teroldego”, “Malbec”, “Montepulciano” and “Rose Muscat” and other experimental varieties of the farm. The total area of vineyards is more than 145 hectares. “Divnomorskoe Estate” is distinguished by a limited release of wines from each vintage and precise alcohol content, which is marked down to a tenth of a percent.

The winery building is located in close proximity to the vineyards, so the harvest travels a minimal distance from the vine to processing. The building itself is made in a modern architectural style, entirely made of wood, which allows the entire winery to literally “breathe” fresh sea air. To age the wine, large oval Botti barrels and classic barriques made of French and Russian oak are used.

The combination of a unique terroir, innovative equipment and technology allows us to produce wines of the highest class. Today the farm produces more than 20 dry still wines and 7 classic sparkling wines.
