Earlier, at the invitation of the NBVV, six world-class experts from five countries arrived in Chisinau to conduct an audit of Moldovan wines. One of the objectives of this audit was to identify strategies for the sale of bulk wines in the EU and in the world in the context of large stocks as a result of three consecutive high yields registered worldwide.
In the first 9 months of 2019, the Republic of Moldova exported 80.46 million liters of bulk wine.
