Overview

Asconi was founded in 1994. The winery has been built based on of modern winemaking techniques, while the company winemakers uses the most advanced manufacturing facilities. Asconi today owns approximately 600 hectares of vineyards, located at a distance of 8-10 km from the winery. European varieties are grown, but special attention is given to local varieties such as Rara Neagra, Feteasca Regala, Saperavi (Georgia), etc. One of the features of the Asconi Winery is that they gather grapes mechanically at nighttime. Asconi wines are not sold in Moldova, they are exported to the EU countries, Chile, Brazil, Australia, the USA, Israel, Africa, etc. The only place where you can buy these wines is a shop at the winery.

Recently, we have also added more variety to our types of grapes which include Malbec, Saperavi, Muscat Rose, Glera and others. These grapes will be used to make wines in small batches or for big blends to add complexity.The harvest season usually starts in mind august with white grapes of Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Muscat. Later on we move to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes harvested in two ways: handpicking and machine harvesting. The handpicked grapes are used primarily for top tier dry wines.

In 2014, the winery opened its doors to visitors. The tourist complex offers two restaurant halls, a spacious terrace overlooking the inner courtyard of the winery. Here you can enjoy exclusive dishes of national cuisine, cooked in the oven according to original recipes. Tours are accompanied in person by one of the company winemakers or managers.
