History

Château Purcari is located in the Purcari wine region, south of Moldova. The winery obtained more than 250 medals in international competitions, becoming the most awarded winery in Central and Eastern Europe.

Freedom Blend was released by Purcari as an act of protest against Russian economic and military intervention in the 3 East-European countries: Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova. As a result, these 3 grape varieties that make the blend originate from those countries: Bastardo, Saperavi and Rara Neagra.

We might easily say that this special wine was not simply dedicated to winemaking, but more to politics – a symbolic, bottled manifest of freedom and of solidarity for these small countries that continuously seek for liberty…
