Wine FestivalAs autumn sets in, wine festivals are a customary way of celebrating the end of the grape harvest and the tulburel (youthful vines) of the next generation. Throughout the country, the first press of unfermented wine, called ravac, is squeezed into waiting casks and drunk enthusiastically by locals and visitors. It is a national embrace of a very important part of Moldovan culture, given greatest expression in the city of Chisinau, the capital. What is so fascinating about it is the blend of professional and non-professional winemakers, all of whom are equally welcome. From the annual procession that stretches down Stefan cel Mare Boulevard, the city’s central axis, to the Moldexpo exhibition, the vitality of the Moldovan wine industry is obvious.
Despite this – and Moldova being home to Milestii Mici, the largest wine collection in Europe (more than 1.5 million bottles housed in 200 kilometres of underground caves) – international attention to the country, its quality products and its festivals has been somewhat lacking outside of tourism from neighbouring countries.
