And in the twentieth century, the winery that had been operating here since the Soviet era thundered: the vintage wines Serednyanskoye, Rosa Zakarpattya, Seductress and Irshavskoye were known throughout the former Union – like the Leanka winery, which produced, and some of them still produce. Although since 1985, with the beginning of the anti-alcohol program, accompanied by the uprooting of vineyards, a decline began – the once glorious “Leanka” is still in the turbulent zone.
