The Winemaking on Bakle and in general in district of Chersonese was knocked down by the well-known Prophetic Oleg's victory over hazarami. More precisely, winemaking blossoming in medieval Tavrike has been connected by that in the north of possession of Byzantium have appeared hazary, with them the military alliance for the Byzantian gold has been concluded. They paid off with it with wine makers, bought also all production with Bakly. Well and when Hazaria kaganat has been crushed, to trade became there is nobody. Many of wine capacities and cellars then began to use as crypts.
The Rests tarapanov and davilen Chufut-kale is easy to see on Mangupe, Eski-kermene, Kachi-kalone. Interestingly, as on Mangupe loss of the Hazaria market is clearly traced in an archaeological material. In 1998-99 expedition of professor A.G.Herzen worked on Citadel excavation. In the basis of one of houses of princely servants pressing cargo from a grape press has been laid, and in a floor has been closed up as superfluous itself davilnja.
Upstream Kachi, at village Kudrino the road Bakhchisarai-Verhoreche turns off on the north to Tepe-Kermen , here is to 250 caves. Tepe-Kermen does not suit at all an economic life. Any time it was the military lock, but its basic purpose was preparation for the second coming of the Christ, for a doomsday and revival. The rests of the crypts hollowed in rocks and the caves-kostnitsy hammered once in thousand of skulls and bones, restore before us a certain conveyor of death, like the Italian monasteries of Capuchins. Dead men from neighbouring valleys in the beginning stacked in crypts. After the flesh decayed, bones took out and, having washed wine, densely stacked in storehouses-kostnitsy. They here, really, remained better, than in valleys, thanks to equal temperature of calcareous thickness. The ceremony obmyvanija bones wine too played not last role.
At bottom of vertical breakage of Tepe-Kermen the rests big vinodelcheskoj manors are interesting, numerous deepenings with trenches between them were pressami, graters and capacities for technological operations with a grape mash and mezgoj.
To Estimate their productivity not so it is simple, and here an economic life of other cave complex – Chilter-koba of village close Verhne-garden archeologist V.N.Danilenko has described very in detail and demonstratively. Sacred Feodor's monastery existed here with 8 for 15 centuries. Behind a table in trapeznoj there were places for 12-14 persons, the grain hole has allowed to store about 5 tons of grain, and tarapany and another vinodelcheskoe the equipment allowed to make to 300 thousand litres of grapes a year. A quantity of rods on terraces was grown up by the monks, the run wild rods and now still fructify. But, of course, both grain, and grapes they bought from countrymen of a valley of the river Belbek that gave means for a life of several honeycombs of persons.
"Church" wines now in Crimea in the big fashion, let out their many enterprises of a steppe and foothill zone, making out usually labels with gilt domes on a red background. Into structure of "church" and "monastic" wines (to which the church has now no relation) enter quite often and infusions of mountain curative grasses. In this sense, and also under the sugar maintenance (10-17%) and fortresses (15-17%) they repeat the most valuable wines described by antique authors.
