Wine of Moldova supports Chisinau International Marathon

This fall, Chisinau International Marathon has the honour to be supported by Wine of Moldova. The fifth Chisinau International Marathon will be held on 29 September, and straight after it, we’ll start getting ready for another cool holiday: The National Wine Day 2019.

The National Wine Day 2019 celebrates the 18th anniversary

In all these years, we celebrated the product of our national dignity by organizing this symbolic for Moldova and unique for the whole world event: the National Wine Day. In 2019, this holiday of millennial winemaking traditions comes with a new anniversary edition, which shall be more extended, in terms of space and time of conduct, more tasty, more fun and more “international”.

The date remains unchanged: the first weekend of October, which is 5 and 6 October. This means that the holiday will start a week earlier than the oeno-touristic wineries of the country will open their doors for the guests, which is 28 September till 13 October.

For the first time in the Wine Day history, the Wine Town will extend beyond the Great National Assembly Square and will include the square of Nasterea Domnului Cathedral, which shall host the Wine School and the Peasant Yard. Your favourite national and foreign singers: ”Via Dacă”, ”Vița de Vie” (România), ”Luiku” band (Ukraine), Pasha Parfeni, Lupii & Alex Calancea Band, Valentin Uzun and the ”Lykos” orchestra, DJ Nico de Transilvania, DJ Markus Lawyer, will perform on the stage, which will be located on the Eugen Doga Street in Chisinau.

You'll be able to taste the wines by place of origin, because the stands of the 65 winemakers will be arranged according to the regions they come from with the Protected Geographical Indication.

The good initiatives should be continued, therefore, the National Wine Day visitors will be able to purchase a Taster’s Diary. It includes information about the presented wines and the ones offered for tasting, 12 degustation coupons, 2 days holiday schedule, promotional materials, Moldova Wine Tours discounts, as well as tickets for riding in public transport.

In addition, the sustainability concept, which has been included in this event for several years, shall be extended, therefore, the 18th National Wine Day shall be even more environmentally friendly due to the electricity consumption optimisation, renewable energy usage, reduction of waste, waste sorting (separate collection), recycling, usage of biodegradable materials, eco furniture, etc.  

Come celebrate the maturity of the most important holiday dedicated to the Moldovan wine, on 5 and 6 October, in the Great National Assembly Square!
