During the trip we will visit the most famous wineries of Russia, walk around the territory where vineyards are grown, go on excursions to famous wineries, visit mysterious wine cellars, as well as taste the most delicious drinks made of grapes.

Look at this small but cozy family winery! The interior immerse us in the Greek atmosphere, and wines leave an incredible aftertaste. Special attention should be paid to the wine cellar, because back in 1857 it was built by Greek settlers.
