The ”Gogu” Winery is a small family business, created in the South-East of Moldova, in the PGI Ștefan Vodă (altitude 120-190 m above the sea level).
There are a large number of sunny days (310-320 days/year) and 450mm-550mm of annual average rainfalls per year. This contributes to the creation of a unique terroir.
The presence here, of red minerals, iron and other micro-elements, contributes to the production of very special wines with superior qualities.
Due to all these qualities of the PGI Ștefan Vodă, most of the winemakers prefer to grow red varieties of grapes.
Since 2011, ”Gogu” Winery concentrates their attention on the white varieties, such as: Fetească Albă, Fetească Regală, Viorica, Riton, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. And they have succeeded to create unique aromas and great quality wines.
Their efforts were appreciated at the international level.This has been confirmed by several golden medals at such prestigious competitions as: Berliner Wine Trophy, Asian Wine Trophy, Mundus Vini, International Wine Contest Bucharest, and others.
”Metafora Orange” is a wine created from the blend of two varieties of grapes ”Viorica” and ” Chardonnay”.
The technology used in this case is a special one, because it is more often used for the red wines. The grapes were ripped manually without being squashed. The fermentation process took 180 days before being pressed.
This wine is special.
The aromas are specific for the varieties, with notes of dried fruits, peaches and raisins.
The wine has a full, well balanced and refreshing taste.
This wine is perfect for dishes with pasta and sauces or cheeses.
