During the phylloxera invasion (a tiny insect that almost completely destroyed the wine industry in Western Europe at the end of the XIX century), samples of the best grape breeds were transported and planted in some of the most cleanest and safest places on the planet. One of these places was "Askania-Nova" reserve. There remained the gold fund of the best grape varieties, including merlot, cabernet, chardonnay and muscat.

Firstly, it is the ground on which the vineyard is located, including all the factors important for winemakers: the type and composition of the soil; the number, thickness and levels of layers; nutrient content; the ability to absorb and release moisture, warm, reflect sunlight, etc.
Secondly, it is the climate: average and peak values of air temperature and humidity, rainfall amount, availability of fog, photoperiod, etc.
And, finally, it is the vineyard location and its environment: the altitude, the slope of the vineyard to the sun (the so called explication, which means those known "southern slopes" and "western slopes"), the proximity of forests and ponds.

In 1889, the colonists Julius Mayer, Louis Gehler and Jean Jatone obtained 1000 hectares of vineyards in the province of Kherson. These vineyards included 100 arpents (100 hectares) located at the border with the biosphere reserve "Askania-Nova." This reserve was founded by landowner Friedrich Faltz-Fein in the years 1887-1889 and was named one of Seven Natural Wonders of Ukraine.
The "Askania-Nova" reserve is the world-class ecological jewel. It is the oldest wild steppe in the world, where hundreds of plant breeds, animals and birds, many of which are listed as endangered, are preserved due to the unique purity of this region. It the unique Chapil wetland, registered on the International list of Ramsar Convention, which is a huge natural ravine where meltwater is collected. These are the eco-wines "Askania" made of pure grape.
Under such circumstances, the grapes ripen earlier, accumulate more sugar and have low acidity, which creates perfect conditions for wine maturation with a delicate impeccable taste.

– is a drink created from grapes grown in ecologically clean environment, attended in a special way - without using harmful chemicals. Thus the most natural exquisite taste of varietal grapes is preserved. Eco-wine means "Askania".

For that the experts of "Askania" use a unique method of drip irrigation: special tubes are connected to the roots of each plant which allows water income. The same method is used in Israel for growing flowery gardens in a rocky desert. The first harvests impressed specialists much. It appeared that in addition to favorable climate and fertile soil, the unique aquatic ecosystem "Askania" also makes great influence on the taste of grapes which are grown in this area. On the territory of "Askania Nova" is situated the Great Chapil wetland, which is a unique terrain depression (actually, it is a huge natural ravine, periodically filled with melt water) with an area of 4x6 km. It registered on the International list of Ramsar Convention about protection of wetlands.

Just one year after "Askania" wines appeared in Ukraine they were named as brand of the year. The combination of delicate exquisite taste, cleaner production, and the skill of winemakers technology has received well-deserved recognition of the Ukrainian manufacturer.
