The Shabo Original Collection stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of Swiss immigrants who, in the year 1822, established the Shabo settlement, a historic milestone intricately woven into the fabric of these exceptional wines. This collection, a homage to the rich tapestry of the past, encapsulates the essence of a land that has been the heartbeat of inspiration and the source of unbridled passion for winemakers in Ukraine for over two centuries.
At the heart of this collection lies a commitment to quality, as each bottle of high-quality dry and semi-sweet wines narrates a story that transcends time. The grapes, the lifeblood of these exquisite wines, find their roots in the Shabo terroir, cultivated with precision and care in the estate’s own vineyards. Meticulously selected for their compatibility with the local soils, grapevines sourced from Europe contribute to the unique character of each varietal.
In a nod to the personalized touch that defines the Shabo Original Collection, every wine is allocated its own plot, identified by a distinctive number. This number, coupled with the geographical coordinates, is thoughtfully inscribed on the back label of each bottle, adding an extra layer of exclusivity and connection to the terroir.
The collection unfolds as a narrative in five primary designs, each accompanied by a captivating illustration that delves into the history of the company and the region it calls home. These illustrations, like the wines themselves, possess a unique charm—they seem to “disappear” into the annals of time, symbolizing the transient nature of history and the fleeting beauty of each moment. This artistic choice draws inspiration from the enchanting Dionysus Fountain, a cultural focal point located in the Shabo Center for Wine Culture.
In essence, the Shabo Original Collection not only offers a sensorial journey through the nuances of its wines but also serves as a visual and historical odyssey, inviting wine enthusiasts to savor not just the flavors in the glass but the rich heritage encapsulated within each carefully crafted bottle.
