Founded in 1996 in Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi, Odessa region, Akkerman Distillery is today one of the largest wineries in Ukraine and a new interesting player in the Ukrainian wine market.
The wine history of this region dates back to ancient times, when six hundred years BC the ancient Greeks founded the first colonies in the Northern Black Sea.
To its potential, the Odessa region is able to compete with Bordeaux, Piedmont, Champagne and the Rhine Valley.
