The ukrainian winery Olvio Nuvo in the middle of a war zone. At the Olvio Nuvo vineyard in Ukraine's embattled Mykolayiv region, workers must dodge the cluster munitions that are strewn throughout the fields while picking grapes.
In 2013, former weightlifter Pavlo Magalias established the Olvio Nuvo vineyard on the slopes of the Southern Buh River in Ukraine. The vineyard owes its name to the ancient Greek city of Olbia, founded in the seventh century, whose ruins are just a few hundred meters away. Since Russia's invasion of Ukraine on February 24, this out-of-the-way, wind-swept spot has lost its usual tranquility.
