The modern Marengo story begins in 2001, when the very first bottle of Marengo vermouth was bottled at Koblevo winery in the South of Ukraine. However, the idea to start a vermouth production has long been part of our desire and vision since winery’s conception at Koblevo in 1982.

At Koblevo, we have long experimented with different types of European grapes to ensure we have created a truly exceptional blend of flavor and aroma, given our unique geographic location in the South of Ukraine. All of the wine, an essential component for the highest quality vermouth, is produced with great care in an ecologically clean area.

By early 2000, we have perfected the production of wines at Koblevo, which provided us with a great foundation for the future vermouth. However, to create an exclusive vermouth with the true Italian spirit this was definitely not enough. And so we’ve set on a quest to find a combination of flavor and aroma that would be worthy of a premium quality vermouth.

In our research and development we have visited the very cradle of Italian wine making at Piedmont, and got the best Italian vermouth makers to tweak and adjust both the production and the flavor of the vermouth at our winery. This was an exceptional journey for us because we were not merely copying the recipes, but creating something truly unique and inspiring from scratch. To commemorate, as well as bring a piece of Italian vermouth making tradition back home and share it with our customers we have decided to name the vermouth after a small Italian city near Piedmont. The name Marengo was born.

After long research and development, our effort has not been in vain. The unique flavor of our vermouth has been awarded with multiple prizes in both national and international competitions, namely Alcosoft, and Prodexpo international drink competitions, and more recently in 2011 we have won the most prestigious Choice of the Year national competition in Kiev, and 2012 Best Drink International award. Yet, the true testament of the quality of our vermouth lies with our customers who continue enjoying our product and sharing the love for Marengo with friends and family.

Despite our recent success, we wholeheartedly believe that there is a lot more to come. We are looking forward to new challenges and with your help we surely will be able to realize great things in the future. Join in with the party and continue writing Marengo story!
