The true Legend

History of KVINT

The history of KVINT dates back to 1897, when the first rectification warehouse was built and launched into operation in Tiraspol. At that time it was specialized in production of 40% alc. vodka from homemade grape wines purchased from the peasants of nearby villages. The production of divins was started 4 decades later — first wine-distilled spirits were put for ageing in 1938.

Nowadays this company with more than 118 years of history holds a leading position among the manufacturers of alcoholic beverages in Moldova. Unique climate, fertile soil, hilly terrain and vicinity of the river Dniester created most favorable conditions for growing best grapes; modern equipment, advanced technologies, original recipes, respect to ancient traditions and passionate work of KVINT professionals — all these factors allow us to produce admirable beverages, which compete with world renowned brands.

The Winery has its own raw materials source — approximately 2000 hectares of vineyards, where we grow more than 20 varieties of grapes.
In our cellars we keep 10 million liters of eaux-de-vie spirits aged from 1 year to 60 years. With this wide range of aged spirits a Master of the Cellar enjoys a greater freedom and flexibility for developing new brands.

Annually we output about 20 million bottles of alcoholic beverages, including over 30 names of divins aged from 3 to 50 years, table and vintage wines, vodkas, gin, hard liquors, calvados.
