"At Domeniile Pripa, the vine grows deeply rooted in history." Andrei Pripa

The story begins on a piece of land in the commune of Purcari, around 1840. The Pripa domains comprise 17.5 ha of hills with exposure on the southwestern slope of the Dniester river, part of the Hamza Valley. This hill is part of the PGI Ștefan Vodă location. The slope received wonderfully the Rara and Feteasca Neagra vine cuttings, which have grown on these lands since the XIX century, but also Merlot, Saperavi, Feteasca Regala and Alba.

Right up the hill, the Dniester river flows through the estuary into the sea. The air currents and topography of the place form a soft microclimate. The slope with an angle of 8% inclination, protects the vine from the scorching sun, heavy winds and frost. Here the grapes ripen evenly and carry the aroma of the place. The stones and clay of the earth create labyrinths for the roots, feeding the grapes.

Here we discovered one of the first industrial cellars for wine production in the region – a construction with a unique architecture for Moldova. From the archive documents we can conclude that it was owned by the Klotz family until the beginning of the XX century. Stone by stone, the walls rise to a height of 6 meters to the ceiling, and the surface comprises 246.7 m2 created to preserve wine and history. The cellar served as inspiration in writing a new chapter for the wine fields, which today is known by the name Pripa.

The stone behind this wine is heavy and old. The wine is, however, new. The first fruit was harvested in 2016. From these grapes was produced the first experimental wine, bottled in numbered bottles.

Only grapes growing on the Pripa Domains are used in wine production. The wines are matured exclusively in Moldovan oak barrels, barrels crafted by three brothers, coopers in at least 3 generations, originating from the village of Ulmu. Since 2016, the first experimental wine has been produced, bottled in numbered bottles. Each of them contains a one hundred percent authentic result.
