the Seventh sky of prince Golitsyn
Though Golitsyn also has appeared in виноторговцев environment in minority, its merits before the Russian winemaking in September, 1903 have been noted in honour of the 25 anniversary of its activity in a New World. The congratulatory telegramme from Nikolay II, a welcoming speech from the representative Udelov V. N. Martynova have planned some rapprochement.
By 1912 Golitsyn has achieved rescue from bankruptcy of the child - a New World, having transferred a part of vineyards and a part of cellars in gift to Nikolay II.
Eventually, the basic part of rare wines has appeared in Massandre, and unique works of art in days of Civil war have disappeared completely.
Opposition and cooperation, disputes and reciprocal concessions of experts of Specific department and Golitsyn's Lion define the main lines of elite Crimean winemaking till now. And occurrence of new wines already in the third millenium – both original local, and repeating foreign types – does not put an end in this dialogue. Well and a point in this section puts
