Château Vartely is a velvety rich red rippling with deep fruit flavours. It’s from Moldova, where historic vineyards once supplied the Russian Royal Court, but are now under serious threat. Enjoy this wine, and help preserve a bit of history too!
Head east from Bordeaux (home to the famous First Growths like Lafite) and you’ve pricey Burgundy. Go further east and, on the same 46 to 47 degree latitude, you’ll eventually find an equally hallowed tradition of wine excellence in Moldova. Before the 1917 Revolution the region supplied fine reds to the Tsars for lavish banquets. Now Moldova is a nearly forgotten winemaker’s Eden, with wine quality and value that’s “aching to find its way to the world’s wine drinkers” (FT). But strife in neighbouring Ukraine has hit wine exports and threatens a centuries’ old way of life. Help protect that tradition by enjoying this luscious, barrel-matured Merlot, available here thanks to our strong links to Moldova. Great with sausage and mash or lamb.
