Asconi Winery

Asconi Winery opens its doors to tourists offering a unique opportunity to see the vineyards, the entire process of obtaining the wine, a wine tasting and traditional lunch of regional specialties.

The Winery was founded in 1994 and to this day remains a family business. Their aim is to make the best possible wine they can, using the best available technology, while maintaining the traditions of local people. They want to share everything they have accomplished with their visitors, local or foreign!

Asconi has planted 506 hectares (1250 acres) of vineyards of various varietals. Among them varietals such as Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscat Ottonel can be found near Geamana village, in the Codru Region. The picturesque vines are situated about 40 km to the south of Chisinau and 10 km from the winery. All of their vineyards are located in the vicinity of the Geamana village, in the county of Anenii Noi, at a distance of approximately 10 kilometers from the winery.

They make a wide variety of wines ranging from dry reds, whites and roses to dessert Ice Wines and fortified wines. Their red wines are full bodied and aged in 225 liter oak barrels or on oak staves. Winery uses mostly American, Hungarian and to a lesser extent French oak. Their white wines are usually in the fresh and aromatic style with the exception of some of their Chardonnays and Rieslings which are fermented or aged in oak barrels as well.

During wine tour visitors can see the whole process of winemaking, how the harvested grapes are pressed, how the juice is fermented and transformed into wines, how the wines evolve after fermentation either by aging in oak barrels and/or in the bottle.
