The Kolonist wine has become the hallmark of the diplomatic corps of Ukraine and delights the Ukrainian diaspora and even the descendants of the German colonists from Bessarabia in distant Canada.

Shabo is one of the oldest terroirs in Europe. Centuries-old traditions of Shabo winemaking formed the basis for the establishment in 2003 of SHABO, a Ukrainian wine complex with a full production cycle.

The products of the “Prince Trubetsky Winery” have gained recognition not only at the domestic but also abroad. Pride of winemakers – an exclusive collection, which collected about 10 thousand bottles of rare and legendary wines.

The culture of Transcarpathian winemaking is unique because it combines Hungarian, Italian and Austrian traditions during historical vicissitudes. It is the result of this cultural alloy that gave such an interesting and colorful product as Transcarpathian wine.

Ambassador Korsunsky also reported on the meeting and on his Twitter account, saying that Ukrainian excellent wines go well with Ukrainian dishes such as Chicken Kiev, Vareniki and Borsch.
