Land site is located from 150 to 250 meters above sea level along coastal line. Territory of the vineyard is in close proximity to the Black Sea which ensures seasons to be changed smoothly. From the opposite side it is surrounded by relict pine and unique juniper-pistachio forests. Grape vine is grown on the plateau, down in the canyons and up on the hills of the Semisam mountain range depending on the features of its variety and soil preferences. The slope in some area reaches up to 17 degrees.

Cabernet Sauvignon
block №1

Cabernet Sauvignon is grown at the very top of the Semisam Mountain range. Grapevines stay continuously under direct sunlight whereas cold air goes down to the foothill and remains the temperature of the peak almost unchanged.

Cabernet Sauvignon
block №2

The northern face of the mountain is headed out towards the sea and blown by the salty winds. This is the reason why Cabernet Sauvignon planting on this area displays a taste of sea salt.

Cabernet Sauvignon
block №3

Cabernet Sauvignon from the southern face of the mountain is more pronounced on the palate which is enriched by the stratified alluvial soils.

block №4

Merlot vineyards has steep slope thus precipitations cannot be accumulated in the soil and cause any harm to grapevines. Precipitation water runs downwards forming a stream. Consequently, grapevine roots are saturated with water and aerated at the same time

Cabernet Franc
block №5

The cold-hardy block of Cabernet Franc is located at 220 meters above sea level next to the ravine Kolodya where wild boars live.

Cabernet Franc
block №6

Cabernet Franc is well adapted to moderately cold climates however it shows very low drought tolerance. Foothill is a perfect location with moderate humidity and foggy mornings.

Sauvignon Blanc
block №7

Rocks are the most ascetic area of winery. Severe environment and stony soil are ideal conditions for growing Sauvignon Blanc.

block №8

Soil of the rock has been composed from decayed shellfish and sea creatures that inhabited the sea million years ago. Limestone offers long-lived and acid wines. Just a perfect area for a remarkable Chardonnay.

block №9

Merlot likes sufficient humidity however excess moisture can lead to mold growth on this thin-skinned grape variety. Drainage is a must, and this can be achieved on this area with well aerated soil.

block №10

Krasnostop is a Russian autochtone or indigenous grape variety. And most probably it has genetic memory. Krasnostop has successfully assimilated on the sea coast and reveals gentle flavors of plum and coffee

Pinot Noir
block №11

A delicate Pinot Noir originating from this well and evenly moistened vineyard specifically needs a gravity-flow way of winemaking. Use of pumps can damage a nuanced aroma of this variety.

block №12

This block of Krasnostop grape variety is not large and it was founded in 2014. Despite it is quite young, this variety ripens earlier and displays more fullness on palate.

block №13

There are a lot of minerals in the soil of the Merlot block such as calcium, potassium and magnesium. It helps the grape vine to become stronger and have greater longevity. Wine is very aristocratic, full-bodied with soft acidity level

Sauvignon Blanc
block №14

Sauvignon Blanc has a very distinctive feature to reflect a terroir and at the same time to remain its unique and complicated character. The soils of “Skalisty Bereg” endow it with easily recognizable aroma of the rocky shore and field herbs.

block №15

Riesling is a Germany originated grape variety which enjoys the cool weather. It takes a long time to mature and keep the right balance. Thus the block is located on the wind-blown plateau

block №16

Chardonnay is planted in the rocky soils with intrusion of pebbles and shales. Solid rocks are heated under the sun and stay warm even at nights enriching soil with minerals. Wine is intense and full-bodied



The soil-building rocks are formed by flysch deposits. Flysch is a sequence of clay, shale and marl limestone layers with stones coming onto the surface. Limestone subsoils have an ability to retain moisture - they nourish the vines with water all the year round. A saturated alkaline environment is the best option to grow traditional European grape varieties

Clayed soil

grape loves this light-textured soil as it can quickly and easily provide essential water and oxygen to the root system. This type of soil has a balanced proportion of sand.
