Vladimir Pukish, author, historian, raconteur and Marketing Director of Fanagoria Winery, one of Russia’s largest modern wineries.

Vladimir Pukish has published numerous books and articles about the people of the region: wine, vineyards, culture, language and heritage. He is an accomplished storyteller, and guests are sure to enjoy his anecdotes and stories from the region.

This wine tasting will feature wines from several Russian wineries including some from the 2016 harvest.

The program is hosted by Charles Borden, author of Russian Wine Country: Sleeping Beauty Awakens, an English language book about one of the world’s oldest wine producing regions. Russian Wine Country lies along Russia’s northern Black Sea coast from the Gelendzhik coastal resort area, about 250 kilometers northwest of Sochi, to the Taman Peninsula between the Black and Azov Seas. Greek settlers established villages in this area in the seventh century BC and produced some of the world’s first wines.

Charles is currently updating his book with Vladimir’s assistance, and it will contain additional chapters contributed by Vladimir. For the new 2017 version, Russian Wine Country will be translated and published in Russian in addition to English. The ratings of wines at this event will be used to help future connoisseurs of Russian wines.

This event is part of Russian Wine Country wine tasting series that feature guests such as winemakers and others who live and work in the wine industry in Russia’s principal wine region along the northeastern coast of the Black Sea.

The cost to participate in the wine tasting, and to reserve a seat is 2,000 rubles. The wine tasting will include a selection of wine and snacks.

Guests may also order from the menu for themselves or their guests and friends at the table. Our venue hosts would appreciate the opportunity to serve their well prepared and delicious Russian dishes.
