21. September 2012 by Lorena 0 Comments

Got a thing for the bubbly? You should definitely check out a tasting at the Odessa Sparkling Wine Company. The winery was first established in 1986 and called Champagne Roederer Henry Plant when Emperor Nicholas II decreed that fine French-style wines should be made in the south. Odessa has the perfect soil and climate for growing grapes, and the winery won its first medal for fine wine production in 1904 at the World Exhibition in Paris.

 

During the Soviet era, the champagne company switched to the popular, sweet Shampanskoye style of wine, which is meant to be a casual, everyday beverage. Using modern production methods, they produced 15 million bottles of sparkling wine every year.

 

Now, the winery makes 34 different varieties of sparkling wine which are exported to Russia, Greece, Germany, Canada and other countries. The company’s offerings include high end sparkling wines that sell for $70US a bottle or more. With prior reservations, visitors can taste several varieties ranging from dry to sweet.
