Beykush Winery

Wine is like an art

Once you are seriously interested in wine, sooner or later the desire to make it yourself comes to mind. It was this passion that led to the creation of the Beykush winery.
Passion alone is not enough to make a great wine. So we turned to science - we studied the soil, climate, precipitation, temperature, wind direction. With collected knowledge we chose suitable grape varieties, planned the planting, built and arranged the vineyard. We had been experimenting for a long time and in a few years entered the market with our wines.

We introduce the advanced world technologies of wine making into our realities and try to do it naturally, without disturbing the balance in the ecosystem surrounding us.

Birds, which are often found in abundance near the water surface, became the symbol of our winery. You can see gulls, cormorants, herons, hobbies, raksha, cranes and owls on the labels of our wines. The toponym Beykush has Turkish origin, in the original language it means “owl” or “king of birds”.

Land, Wind, Sea

The land of our vineyards is a part of the flat watershed plateau between Bugsky and Berezansky estuaries of the Southern Steppe, with formed dark chestnut loamy soils.

Our vineyards are located literally a few hundred meters from the sea and are surrounded from three sides by water, they are constantly touched by breeze.

Neighborhood with estuaries and the sea work as a large natural air conditioner, softening the climate during dry years, and the wind, blowing on the vineyard, does not allow grape diseases to develop.

Sun

Our summer lasts from May to October, the growing season of grapes is about 225 days, and the sum of active temperatures (above +10) is about 3400 degrees. Precipitation is low, not more than 400 mm.

Thanks to the daytime sun, the grapes are gaining the necessary amount of sugar, and the coolness of the night gives the grapes a good acidity. As a result, now we have excellently balanced wines, with the potential for long aging.

Vines

Our vineyards grow in the unique place, on Cape Beykush, whose shores are washed on one side by Berezansky Liman, on the other by Beykush Bay. Beykush vineyards consist of 11 hectares of French and Italian clones of white varieties of grapes - Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Rkatsiteli and red varieties of grapes - Pinot Noir, Merlot, Saperavi, Cabernet Sauvignon.
In addition, there is an experimental vineyard with white varieties, such as Telti-Kuruk, Albariño, Timorasso, and red varieties, such as Tempranillo, Malbec, Pinotage.

Picture about the company

For the first time I tried making wine in 2010. As the result, several hundred bottles of beautiful Chardonnay and a blend of Rkatsiteli with Pinot Grigio were produced.

The quality of these wines turned out to be amazing and a keen desire woke up in me to create super-wines that could represent Ukraine. I founded a small winery to produce Ukrainian wine in small quantities, but of top class quality, the wine, which could compete with wines from France, Italy, Spain.

In 2011, I gathered a team of like-minded people, turned my house in Chernomorka (this place is located on the south of Ukraine, between Odessa and Nikolayev, near Ochakov) into a research laboratory and winery, and in 2012 we planted vines on the Beykush cape. A few years passed, the vineyard grew and began to produce high quality grapes, and now in 2018 we began official sales of our wines in Ukraine.

Artania wines
The legend says that Artania was an ancient country located on the lands of the Northern Black Sea region.
The wines of this series are made according to the principle of the concept of "house wine", when wines from different varieties or plots belonging to the certain winery are blended in one large cuvee. It does in order to show the style of the winery or features of the area rather than the varietal characteristics of individual varieties in the cuvee composition.

Beykush Wines
The series of titular wines of our winery, named after the bay, where both the vineyards and the winery itself are located. This series is designed to reflect the most interesting part of our work - experiments. In it you can find both monosort wines from unusual and rare varieties or particularly successful yields from traditional varieties. As well as unexpectedly interesting blends from two, maximum three varieties, where the character of each of them can be clearly seen and “sounds” in a symphony with the others

Arbina
Arbina wine is made from white grapes, but using red wine technology. Such wines are called orange for their orange color and rich flavor.
Back in the first millennium BC, the ancient Greeks founded the Borisphenid settlement on the territory of the modern island Berezan, which is located at sea at a distance of 4 km from the Beykush winery.

During the time of its peak development, the town was named Arbina. Ancient Greeks gave this region the tradition of wine making. We gave the name to this wine in order to honor Ancient Greeks.

Kara Karmen
This is our special wine, which we make using the method of drying grapes: bunches already cut off the vine are hung in a special ventilated room. In a few weeks, grapes lose moisture, while the sugar content (as a result of alcohol), as well as aromatic, coloring and phenolic substances increases proportionally.
This extra rich wine has almost black color and a serious, strong character.Therefore, we gave this wine the name of Kara Kermen - the name of an ancient fortress located not far from our winery, on the site of the modern city of Ochakov.
