Villa Tinta is one of the first wine enterprises established in independent Ukraine.

Villa Tinta owns 550 hectares of its own vineyards (and also processes grapes grown on 600 hectares of partner vineyards) in the picturesque valley of Yalpug Lake. The unique terroir is expressed in wines from European varieties, as well as local ones – Odessa Black and Sukholimansky. The winery offers several types of wines: Villa Tinta (dry ordinary wines from local and European varieties), Tintarella (sparkling wines using the Charmat-Martinotti technology), Tinta (semi-sweet blended wines).

The quality of wines, in addition to valuable terroir, is ensured by modern equipment and a high level of qualification of winemakers. It should be emphasized that this is regularly confirmed at professional competitions.
