”Our aspiration is to produce a quality wine. Quality, in Equinox's view, is predetermined in the vineyard: the terroir, namely the influence of soil conditions, location and climate, plus the operations and viticultural methods used, but above all, the way the viticulturist feels his vineyard and how it "communicates" with it. In other words, everything starts from the vine, and technologies do nothing, but preserve better what nature has created.” Constantin Stratan

The business was founded in 2002, when the first plot of 1 hectare of vineyards was planted. Equinox wines are produced from grapes grown in our vineyard of only 5 hectares near the village of Olanesti, on the hill that rises along the Dniester Valley. Our wines bear the imprint of this place, with its unique microclimate and great diversity of soils, even on such a small area of land.

Grapes are grown organically, because we believe that this method of cultivation allows us to obtain wines with a uniqueness that bears the imprint of where they come from. At the beginning, we selected Rara Neagra from the old vineyards in Olanesti, because at that time there were no vines of local varieties. The first plot of Rara Neagra was planted in 2005 with grafted vines of our own selection. A few years later, grafted vines of local varieties also appeared on the market, so we expanded the areas planted with this variety. The first Equinox wine was launched in 2006, an edition of only 800 bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon from the first harvest on the first plot.

Now, we grow eight red varieties: Rara Neagra, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Merlot, Malbec, Feteasca Neagra and Saperavi. We also have three white varieties - Feteasca Alba, Feteasca Regala and Chardonnay. From these grapes we currently produce 3 variety wines and 6 blends.
