Beykush Winery, the most award-winning winery in Ukraine, is lying on 11-hectare plot on the Beykush peninsula of the Black Sea. It is surrounded by the sea on three sides, which works as a great natural air conditioner, softening the climate in dry years, and the wind reduces significantly the risk of fungal vine diseases. There are mostly French and Italian grape varieties, but also some experimental vineyards with Alvarinho, Timorasso and Tempranillo, Pinotage and local Telti-Kuruk.
