The Ukrainian “Wine and Taste Road” united the most interesting places for wine and gastronomic tourism in the Danube Bessarabia. Among them – wineries, cheesemakers, productions of meat delicacies, as well as natural and historical locations in the region. The route starts in Odessa and runs through the whole of Bessarabia. “Road” is a product of the project “Support for the Development of the Geographic Designation System in Ukraine”. The initiator of the project is the European Union, the goal is the development of gastronomic and agronomic tourism.
Centre for ethnographic green tourism “Frumushika-Nova” is one of the locations of the road. The once destroyed and now restored Moldavian village of Frumushika is located near the unique feather grass steppe. The smell of wormwood and rare herbs, shepherds, flocks of sheep, more than 20 species unique birds, an artificial lake, the largest granite monument to a shepherd in the world, a collection of sculptures of socialist realism, an open-air ethnographic museum, wine, Bessarabian cuisine and hospitality – all this awaits the curious tourist just 200 km from Odessa.
