Ukrainian wines are produced according to the newest technologies using the most modern equipment. Special attention is paid to barrique - aging wines in oak barrels. The contact with wood makes the drinks more tannic and aromatic. The most popular grape varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Isabella, Odessa Black, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sukholinski White. The bouquet of Ukrainian red wines is dominated by notes of berries, leather, tobacco and spices; white wines have notes of fruit, flowers, nutmeg and honey. Baked duck, ham, tomato salad with brynza, country-style potatoes, sea and river fish, sweet pastries, fruits are harmonious gastronomic combinations.
