He lived in the XIII century and came to life in the XXI.

“I was inspired by world museums and knew that it should not be about a few old exhibits. It was necessary to create a modern multimedia museum, full of information, but certainly not boring.

We “revived” winemaker Chiz and he will take you on an interesting tour.

Learn about wine in the world, modern trends, see how wine was created in Transcarpathia at different times, and how it is made now.

Wine culture is a history that is pleasant to learn”, says Mr Radomyselskiy.

The Chateau Chizay team created Museum of winemaker Chiz with responsibility for the extraordinary history of Transcarpathia and Transcarpathian wine and with great love.

Gennadiy Gutman, the founder of Chateau Chizay winery, who came up with the idea to create Museum of winemaker Chiz, says:

“Our job is not just to make qualitative wine, but also to return the great glory to Transcarpathian wine.

The region should be returned on the world map as a wine region.

We love what we do and we want to share that love”.

Before cutting the symbolic ribbon for opening of the Museum together with Gennadiy Gutman, the head of Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Igor Bondarenko said:

“Chateau Chizay is a little Italy. What Gennadiy Gutman created together with the team is very important. This is a discovery for the tourist industry of Transcarpathia. Thank you very much! We pledge to support you, because you contribute to development of our region!”

Museum of winemaker Chiz waits for guests seven days a week from 9 am to 8 pm at the address: Berehove, Chizay №1.
