FEW WORDS ABOUT US

WELCOME

It will take just a day to drive thru Moldova from its northernmost point - Naslavcea to the southernmost - Giurgiuleşti. After a distance of several hundred kilometers from this oasis of cultivated crops in the North of Moldova, you will find yourself here, in the South, in the fairy kingdom of viniculture, where the village Gavanoasa is located. In 1975 in the south of the village, in the middle of vineyards the winery, that today became the joint-stock company -JV "VINIA TRAIAN" JSC, was put into operation.

When thirty-three years ago the winery was built on the left bank of the historic River Cahul in the village of Gavanoasa, then probably not everyone understood, how well the location was chosen. As the matter of fact, not far from the Winery-only 4 km away- the Trajan Walls spread. The Trajan Walls (VALUL LUI TRAIAN) for Moldova has the same meaning as the Pyramids for Egypt or Stonehenge for the United Kingdom.

You have to agree, that when in conversation with partners you will not importunately notice: «Two thousand years ago, the ancient Romans have cultivated vine here. We simply continue their traditions», - there is almost no need for any additional advertising. However, in the "VINIA TRAIAN" we do not rely on the fact that a good brand by itself would be sufficient for a good sale of its products. The Board of the Company prudently manages the funds received from the sale of wines by investing in production, product quality assurance and improvement of working conditions for employees.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Grape wine deserves to be not just a drink, but also the Phenomena in human life. This Phenomenon was treated differently in different cultures. Some cults associated Wine with youth and the salvation, with the divine exhilaration of the soul. Greek and Persian poets eulogized it. In their view, wine gives a person a chance for a brief moment to be in a state of being, usually inherent to the gods. In the sacrament of the Eucharist when the believer tastes the bread and Wine, takes communion of the body and blood of Christ (“And he took a cup and thanked him and gave it to them and said; drink all of it; for this is my blood ...” Matt. 26: 27-28).

Wine producers compare their wine with different things: with art, music and characters of people, men and women, a state of mind and for some of them wine is even the meaning of life.

A true understanding of the wine comes from the context in which it was made of, understanding the culture of the region where it was born. You may not remember the name of the wine, but if you remember with whom did you drink it, then the taste of the wine would be never forgotten.

We treat wine as an art praising the freedom of Bugeac steppe, that is why we are investing in its production not only ancestral traditions and achievements of modern technology, but also the our souls.
