TIMBRUS is an international project that specialises in producing a brand new wine of premium quality. TIMBRUS’ own vineyards are situated in the legendary Purcari region to the South-East of Moldova.
Manuel Ortiz is a renowned Spanish enologist and a well-known european expert who creates wines for TIMBRUS. He also is a creator of several Spanish wines and a consultant at winemaking companies in Europe, Latin America and Russia.
TIMBRUS is one of the most ambitious projects by Manuel Ortiz. Being a project partner and fully controlling all the processes of viticulture and winemaking in the frame of the project, an eminent enologist aims to prove that the world-class premium wines can be created in Moldova.
The secret of the TIMBRUS’ wines is the correct European approach at all stages starting from planting the vine and finishing with bottling. Such approach shows itself in every detail: choice of the quality planting materials, creating the most favourable conditions for planting and developing of the vine, applying spot-on, smart methods of using natural resources of Purcari terroir as well as aging of wine in barrels made of French and American oak.
Having their own vineyards in Purcari region it enables the TIMBRUS company to successfully grow not only traditional varieties of grapes (such as Merlot, Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Cabernet) and varieties of grape which are rare for Moldova (such as Saperavi, Shiraz, Malbec, Traminer), but also unique local ones (such as Rara Neagra, Viorica, Feteasca Neagra), used for producing the unique author wine.
When creating TIMBRUS wines, the yeast selection grown on vines at TIMBRUS own vineyards at Purcari region is used. Such an approach is more laborious and expensive, in return it allows to reveal the best wine properties in terms of flavor and taste, as well as to discover he varietal characteristics of grapes and the natural abundance of Purcari terroir.
As a result, TIMBRUS wines have genuine European, noble style. TIMBRUS brand, rightly perceived as a personal message from the European enologist, is addressed to all admirers of premium author wines created in Moldova.
