Odessa’s Countryside and Shabo Winery Tour

This is a tour to Odessa’s suburbs and the most famous winery in Odessa’s region Shabo.

The tour starts with the drive through Odessa’s region: we’ll see local villages and agricultural fields, the Black Sea coast with Soviet time and modern resorts, the Dniester estuary and the point where it connects with the Black Sea.

Following a stop at the local resort area Zatoka – yes, it’s great to stretch the legs after 1 hour drive, walk to the Black Sea coast and get a feel for the local resort life, we’ll continue the trip to the Shabo winery.

Founded in 1821 by the Swiss colonists, the Shabo wine factory is the most famous winery in Odessa’s region and the only in Ukraine center of wine culture. What makes the Shabo wine factory tour really special?

  • You’ll see one of the most modern and largest production facilities in Europe

  • It’s a fascinating journey into the wine-making history of the region: from the ancient Greeks to the Ottomans to the Swiss colonists to Romanians to Soviets to finally modern period – Shabo has quite a story to tell!

Last and most important – you’ll try a selection of the Shabo fine red and white wines :).
