The award-winning Purcari Wineries Group is pleased to announce that in late November 2022, the iconic Freedom Blend officially launched in the United States.
Château Purcari’s Freedom Blend (2011 vintage) was launched in 2014 as a manifesto to commemorate 20 years of freedom from the Soviet Union. It was a defiant symbol of solidarity against a paradigm of military aggression; Transnistria in 1992, Abkhazia and South Ossetia in 2008, Crimea and Donbas in 2014. Freedom Blend is not only a tribute to the courage and resistance of these three countries, but it is also an act of gratitude for the heroic fight and resistance of the Ukrainian people.
Bold and full of character, Château Purcari’s Freedom Blend is crafted from three indigenous grape varieties – Bastardo (Magarachsky) from Ukraine, Saperavi from Georgia and Rară Neagră from Moldova. It represents the heart of Georgia, the terroir of Moldova, and the free spirit of Ukraine.
With the Ukrainian border located just 15 kilometers from the winery, Château Purcari has been at the forefront of the refugee crisis and continues to provide essential support and assistance. All Chateau Purcari’s profits from the sale of the Freedom Blend will be donated to support Ukrainian refugees.
