Moldova culture palaceFormerly known as Moldavia, Moldova lies in eastern Europe. You will find it between Romania and Ukraine. Moldova used to be an extension of the Russian Empire during 1812 but eventually reconciled back to the Romanian lands by 1918. Much of what is Moldova at present is the product of the 14th century.

The country is populated by various ethnic groups which are Moldovans, Ukrainians, Russians, and others such Gagauzians, Bulgarians, Jews, Germans, and others. They constitute the 4.2643 million. Among all European countries, Republic of Moldova is considered to have the most population. The diversity of ethnicity contributes to the culture of the country.

The land of Moldova is very fertile supported with its temperate continental climate. Its lands can nurture a productive agriculture, thus the success of vineyards. "The soil cover consists mostly of chernozyoms (80%), grey and brown forest soils, valley swamp soils."

Although, winter is part of the country’s season, it is by no threat to the vineyards since these vineyards have long been established. Moreover, most of the vineyards are situated in regions that have the model climate.

Dividing Moldova according to its climate produces four agricultural areas. These are the North, Central South and South East. And if you research on the vineyards in Moldova, these four agricultural areas are the central industrials wine producers.
