Moldovan wine has undergone a complete revolution in improving wine quality over the last decade, with clear proof shown by 740 medals awarded to Moldovan wines in 2019 at renowned international wine competitions. The National Office for Vine and Wine (ONVV) is the main body that manages the Moldovan wine sector, bringing its expertise and technical assistance to vine and grape growing and vinification, and embracing promotion and marketing of quality wines. The moldovan wine industry owes the ONVV the creation of the Protected Geographical Indications regions and the precious national wine and vine register.
