Beykush Winery

Black Sea Wines

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.

Wines

Our wines are often unconventional blends.
or rare experimental varieties that give us excellent results.
We rethink Western technologies for our realities.
and the resulting wines once again show the potential not only of our lands, but also the capabilities of our hands.

    Artania

    Legend has it that Artania was called the ancient country located on the lands of the Northern Black Sea region.

    The wines from this series are made according to the principle of the French wine economy, when in one large cuvee wines from different varieties or plots belonging to the farm are mixed in order to show the farming style or terrain features rather than the varietal characteristics of individual varieties in the cuvee.

    Beykush

    A series of titular wines of the winery, named after the bay, where both the vineyards and the winery itself are located, is designed to reflect the most interesting part of our work - the experiments. In this series, you can find both monosort wines from unusual or 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 is clearly visible and “sounds” in a symphony with the others.

    Arbina

    Arbin Wine is named after the ancient Greek city of Arbin (Ἀρβινα), also known as Borysfenid (Βορυσθενιδα), which was located on the territory of Berezan Island, located at sea, 4 km from Beikush winery.
    This wine is made from white Rkatsiteli grapes, but using the technology of red wines (fermentation with berries), followed by aging in American oak oak barrels. Such wines are called orange.

    Kara Kerman

    Where the modern city of Ochakov is located, in the old days there was the fortress of Kara Kerman.
    This wine is special. The technique of production is called appasimento: the grapes are dried after harvest, loses moisture, and thus it increases the sugar content, concentrates acids, aromas and polyphenols (the latter are responsible for the color and astringency of the wine). The "monumental" nature of the wine received was inclined us to name it in honor of the aforementioned fortress.

Picture about the company

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

Geologically, the land where our vineyards located 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 literally located in 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 serves as a large natural air conditioner, softening the climate during dry years. Wind, blowing on the vineyard, significantly reduces the risk of developing fungal diseases of the vines.

Sun

The sun warms our vineyards on average 225 days a year. Despite of this the proximity of water and constant wind don’t allow the air or the soil to warm up to excessively high elevations (which is very good for the functioning of the vine without excessive thermostress). 
The precipitation level is 400 mm, which is lower than the minimum for the vine, but it gets the rest of the necessary moisture from the abundant morning dew provided by its proximity to two estuaries.Large differences between day and night temperatures favor a more active synthesis of aroma precursors and their preservation before the vintage, as well as the optimal level of acidity in the berries.

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 Bekush 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, Alvarigno, Timorasso, and red varieties, such as Tempranillo, Malbec, Pinotage.

For the first time I came to Beykush to do experiments for a dissertation. Fell in love with craft winemaking, the opportunity to experiment and Eugene's desire to make the best Ukrainian wines. 

Picture about the company

For the first time I tried making wine in 2010. As the result, several hundred bottles of Chardonnay and a blend of Rkatsiteli with Pinot Grigio were produced. As for me, I was surprised by their quality and I realized that we have the potential to create modern wines at the level of leading wine countries.
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.

    Интервью
    Евгения Николайчук, Дима Баранов 01.12.2018
     Основатель и идеолог украинской винодельни “Бейкуш” считает, что они производят вина по качеству способные соревноваться с винами Франции, Италии и Испании. С ним согласны многие потребители и даже сомелье, которые традиционно не очень приветливы к локальным винам. 11 гектаров виноградников в Николаевской области, пара десятков тысяч бутылок - очень маленькое хозяйство по сравнению с украинскими гигантскими заводами. Аккуратность и тщательность процессов на каждом этапе от работы на винограднике, до идеальной чистоты на винодельне. Здесь не стремятся делать дешевые вина, а хотят производить продукт с конкурентным качеством...

    Немалое дело – малое виноделие Фотохудожник Арсен Федосенко
    …«Пино странно ведет себя, наверное ночью подмерз, надо погреться на солнышке», – говорит Ольга (главный технолог, хрупкая девушка), глядя на колбу виноградного сусла. Через минуту 500-литровая бочка капризного Пино выныривает из подвала на улицу… Здесь к вину относятся, как к ребенку, а почти все операции выполняют женские руки. Хозяйством руководят молодые виноделы Ольга Ромашко и ее помощница – Кристина Бохна. Контроль, чистота, технологичность – это винодельня «Бейкуш».
