The Wine Day is a tradition to celebrate the end of the harvest season and the start of the new winemaking period in Moldova. The event promotes the Moldovan people millenary culture of creation and consumption of quality wine and conscious and moderate wine consumption, through education. The festival has become one of the most popular events of its kind in the world. But those who attended the Wine Day in Moldova at least once are sure that there is nothing more outstanding out there.



In 2002 the President of Republic of Moldova declared the 2nd Sunday of October to be the National Wine Day. Since 2013, the National Wine Day is held the first weekend of October. Over the years the festival has changed several locations and concepts. With the creation of the National Office of Vine and Wine, as of 2014 the National Wine Day is presented under the country brand "Wine of Moldova. A Legend Alive".
