When Moldovans set their minds to something, put their soul into it and add some inspiration, the result can only be called a “work of art”. Whether it’s traditional crafts, delicious local food or remarkable wines, the people of Moldova are known for working hard and bringing to life the most amazing creations.

This year Moldova has a truly memorable presence at ProWein, an International Trade Fair for Wine and Spirits, taking place in Germany, Düsseldorf. The stand – which hosts a record 39 Moldovan wineries – has been designed using entirely hand-embroidered canvas, decorated with traditional ornaments. The installation symbolizes Moldovan winemaking: long-established, passionate, inspiring and aspiring.

To make this exclusive stand, 12 Moldovan artists worked by hand for over 2,500 hours, using 500 needles, hundreds of thousands of strokes and stitches, and over 50 kg of wool, to embroider 130 square meters of canvas.

This unique work of art can be seen and contemplated at ProWein Düsseldorf from 18th to 20th March (Hall 15, Stand G81).

If you’re around, stop by to taste the latest vintages from 39 Moldovan wineries, united under the country brand “Wine of Moldova” which will showcase their products.
