“We want to produce the kind of high-quality wine that we believe only small wineries can make. Wine is part of our history; year by year, we want to contribute to its culture. It is probably the only beverage with “memory”; its taste communicates such details as the growing area, origins, climate, and — last but not least — the careful attention of the growers and winemaker. This is why we spare no effort to make truly delicious wines.”

In earlier times, the area where where the Mezalimpe vineyard is situated belonged to Baron Dombrov, who produced wine renowned for its outstanding flavor. The vineyard is bordered by a lake system stretching to the Black Sea on one side and a forest on the other. Nearby, the Dniester River flows through a picturesque valley.

Mezalimpe LLC has cultivated vines and produced wine since 2003. Its name combines the Moldovan names of several grape varietals. The winery grows Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the best varietials for the local soils and microclimate.

The 25-acre (10-hectare) vineyard was planted in 2004, and the adjacent winery was built two years later. Equipped with cutting-edge technology, it has the capacity to process 100 tons of grapes. The first wine was produced in 2004 from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Wines are produced in small quantities and cellared for future lease.

Mezalimpe’s grapes receive great care before reaching the winery. Vineyard yields are strictly monitored, and every cluster of grapes is examined before vinification. Wines are aged in oak barrels according to a careful methodology.

Mezalimpe wines were presented for the first time at the Prodexpo exhibition in Moscow in 2009. The wines were also exhibited at Expovin in Chișinău, a Moldovan wine festival in Poland, and other events in Moldova. The company produces approximately 50,000 liters of wine per year, of which 20,000 bottles are premium wines sold from the winery. The rest is marketed through the winery’s store in Chișinău.
