Grapevine Terraces

Vine terraces make an inseparable constituent of the rich history of Stroentsy Village. At the beginning of the 19th century, the terraces were part of the estate of Prince Wittgenstein, who paid special attention to the development of viticulture. Using the terrain, he arranged stone terraces where table and European technical grape varieties were planted, specialists from Germany being invited to care for them.

Terraces are located on the eastern slope and due to a considerable amount of sunlight yield a rich grape harvest.

The wines produced in the village of Stroentsy were recognized as one of the best remedies for the treatment of gastric diseases and their prevention. Today, grapevine terraces are one of the most significant attractions of the village.
