With over 60 countries represented at ProWein, the challenge facing less well-known ones like Moldova, is how to make their voices heard. Meininger's associate editor, Robert Joseph takes part in a discussion at ProWein.
This week, while partnering with the ASI – Association de la Sommellerie Internationale, Moldova’s winemakers also lent a helping hand to their neighbours in Ukraine, justifying the description 'Small Country; Big Heart' by which this country is becoming known.
Moldova, is a significant wine exporter, despite its small population and area. Until now, however, it has often gone unnoticed. This year, thanks in part to the tragic events taking place in its neighbour, Ukraine, that has changed.
Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine raises unhappy memories in Georgia which suffered a similar fate in 2008 - as well as current fears there and in Moldova which will also have to provide sanctuary to Ukrainians who flee across its border
Moldovan winemakers will be out in force at ProWein 2020, showcasing the medal-winning wines that are impressing ever more wine lovers across the globe – and offering you a chance to visit the country.
