Vineyard

“The main idea of our winery is to make the wine unique. I grow grape in harmony with the environment and do my best to make our vines to become a part of the ecosystem in which they were brought”, - these are the Pavel Svets words. The UPPA WINERY vineyards are divided into two parts. Each of these parts is characterized by special natural features that allow creating very much different wines.



Cler Polati

This vineyard owes its name to the location on the southern slope. Rows are orientated from the north to the south at a height of 380-410 meters above sea level. Such exposition allows catching maximum of warmth and light. Long ago people from nearest villages noticed how this site is heated by Crimean sun and called it “Polati” in a similar way to an upper deck of a Russian stove.

Cler Numullite

The name of this vineyard refers directly to the UPPA WINERY terroir. Nummulite (from the Latin word “numus” that means “coin”) is a genus of extinct sea organisms. A plenty of shells of such organisms are found at the vineyard. This points to the fact that our parent material used to be an ocean floor in relatively recent geological time (about 145-450 million years ago).

Нуммулит (от лат. Nummulus — монетка) — род вымерших одноклеточных организмов. Нуммулиты имели известковую, пропитанную тонкими порами раковину и вели придонный образ жизни.
