A few words about the history of Abrau-Durso:

Emperor Alexander II founded Abrau-Durso estate 150 years ago. In 1870, a perfect terroir for producing sparkling and still wines opened on the sandstone slopes of Lake Abrau, where the first vine shoots of classic European varieties started growing. The Russian sparkling wine traditions emerged there as a result of cooperation between Russian and French experts.

In the twentieth century, with the development of production, the wine house products became world famous, began to be exported, participated in various exhibitions and wine-tasting competitions, won 92 gold, 95 silver, 17 bronze medals and 9 Grand Prix.

Today CJSC Abrau-Durso is the leading Russian producer of sparkling wines. Champagne is made there both in the classic way - in bottles, and by the method of hampanization - in closed reservoirs (acratophores).
