Wine production in Uzbekistan has a very deep history. It is believed that the first grapes were brought here 6 thousand years ago. And even then in Central Asia there was a high technology of winemaking and growing grapes.
The famous Venetian traveler of the middle ages, Marco Polo, who traveled through Central Asia, wrote in his diary:
“Samarkand, Bukhara and other wonderful cities are the places decorated with the magnificent gardens and vineyards. I tasted the wine here. This wine was at least a dozen years old, and it amazed with its excellent quality…”
In 1927, a famous winemaker, Professor M. A. Khovrenko, came to Uzbekistan. He was the first in our country to develop technical methods for the production of fine wines, such as" Gulyakandoz"," Shirin"," Liqueur Cabernet"," Aleatiko"," Uzbekistan "and" Farkhod", and organized the opening of the first winery for their production.
