Viorica is a rare light-skinned white grape variety indigenous to the Stefan Voda wine-growing region of Moldova. Viorica is a hybrid grape made by crossing the two red grape varieties Seibel and Aleatico, and paradoxically the result is a white grape. It is a symbol of the Moldovian white wines mainly used in the production of local sparkling and table wines since 1969. Viorica is traditionally vinified off-dry or semi-sweet, giving birth to truly unique and distinguished wines. The grape variety has a strong personality with floral, citrus, and spicy aromas, sometimes also has a touch of honey. It is unfortunately planted only in Moldova, and it is consumed within the country.
