In the northern part, however, it only developed much later from monks in the 11th century. In the Middle Ages, the Genoese, who then owned Sudak, traded Crimean wines across Europe.

Her favorite Grigori Alexandrowitsch Potjomkin (1739-1791) made it arable and also promoted viticulture. The count imported vines from Italy, Spain and France, where the climate was very similar to that in the Crimea. The soil around the city of Sudak was particularly fertile.

The German scientist and academician Peter Simon Pallas (1741-1811), who was brought in from Berlin by Catherine II and who created large wine plantations in the Sudak region, deserves special credit for Russian winegrowing.

Ukraine continues to see Crimea as an autonomous republic and part of its own territory, Russia however, as a separate federal district. The UN declared the referendum invalid by a large majority.
