On May 18, 2023, a unique wine evening "Consumer tasting of the best craft wines of Ukraine-2023" was held at the Kyiv analytical center "Experts Club". The event presented the best wines of Ukraine according to the results of the VII All-Ukrainian Tasting Competition "Variety and Terroir. Micro winemaking. Unbreakable".

The evening was special not only because of the unsurpassed range of wines but also because two winners in two competitions were determined.

Within the framework of the Consumer Tasting of the Best Craft Wines of Ukraine-2023 competition, the winner was the Merlot 2020 wine from TM NAROVYLO WINERY, and the winner of the Best Design of a Bottle of Craft Wine of Ukraine-2023 competition was the Pinot Noir 2020 wine from TM 46 Parallel. Both winners received certificates from the Experts Club .


"This evening gave us a unique opportunity to see, feel and, most importantly, taste the highest standard of Ukrainian winemaking. After all, none of the presented wine brands is yet on public sale," said Natalia Blagopoluchna, President of the All-Ukrainian Association of Winemakers and Sommeliers.

In his turn, the founder of the Experts Club, Maksym Urakin, emphasized that it is extremely important to support and celebrate the winemaking achievements of Ukrainian craft producers.

"The winner of the competition, Merlot 2020 from NAROVYLO WINERY, demonstrates the highest quality of our national winemaking products, and the creative design of Pinot Noir 2020 from 46 Parallel shows that Ukrainian winemakers not only understand the true taste of wine, but also care about every detail, including the design of the bottle. This perfectly illustrates our passion for winemaking. In my opinion, Ukrainians should develop consumer patriotism, choosing products primarily from domestic producers, because they are no worse and often much better than imported ones," emphasized Maxim Urakin.
