A selection of various refreshments at the Filatov Winery and Museum in Samarkand.

In the mood for some wine-tasting? Believe it or not, Uzbekistan has 14 of its own wineries and most of them are ready and waiting for you to visit and sample the best they've got to offer.

The most famous winery in Uzbekistan is the Filatov Winery and Museum in Samarkand. Opened in 1868 by the Russian entrepreneur D.L. Filatov, the wine from this region soon gained its rightful international reputation at various wine-tasting competitions in 1883. Due to the political upheaval in Russia, Filatov was forced to leave his winery. Before he left, he stored a collection of wines in a secret location within the winery in 1908 that weren't discovered until the building was re-constructed in the 1930s. In 1927, Mikhail Khovrenko became its director and its wine production has continued through the Soviet Union era to this day. Since then, its wine has won 80 international awards and continues to produce award-winning wines.

Today, it produces a wide variety of wines, vodkas, cognacs, and brandies – 16,000 tonnes annually! The museum guides speak English and are always glad to welcome guests to their historic and venerable winery.

Expand your comprehension of wines throughout the world by taking the time to visit one our wineries! The tour itself is relatively inexpensive and Roxana Tour can arrange a visit for you that will be treasured forever!
