Classic technique

Genuine Champagne is traditionally produced using the Champenoise, or classic technique. The method of secondary fermentation in bottles, which was created by French wine makers, is an extremely complicated and long process, which includes numerous unique procedures: assemblage, remuage, degorgage, and others.

A full production cycle for wines created using the classic technique has been created and perfected at Abrau-Durso. We have been producing sparkling wine using the classic technique for more than 120 years!

Сhampenoise technique is used for the production of:

Wind pattern is the terroir's decisive factor

It is the wind that brings to the vineyards the tones, notes and aromas of the surrounding nature, on which the regional wine’s specific bouquet and style are based. The rich wind pattern of the Abrau-Durso Valley gathers from all sides and mixes in a natural mountain bowl a variety of flavours – from dry grass and floral aromas from the steppes to the brackish marine and freshwater lake nuances.

All about Russian sparkling wine

Abrau-Durso was founded in 1870 by the decree of the Russian Emperor Alexander II in a picturesque place in the south of Russia on the shores of Lake Abrau. At first, only still wines were made at Abrau-Durso, but 1896 saw the production the first sparkling wines, which subsequently made the wine house famous. Sparkling wine from Abrau-Durso cellars was the favourite drink of the Russian aristocracy; it was served to Russian emperors, later to secretaries-general, and is now served at gala receptions at the Kremlin.
