Natalia Georgievna Stanislavska was born on March 12, 1936 in the city of Kerch in Crimea. There, in 1951, she graduated from a seven-year school and entered the Yalta Agricultural Technical School, which she graduated with honors and obtained the specialty of agronomist and viticulturist.

At that time, the range of grape varieties that had high sugar accumulation in the conditions of the Northern Black Sea region and were suitable for the production of high-quality dessert wines was limited. At the same time, the increase in the production of such wines was necessary for wide consumption – Crimea produced a limited amount of dessert wines. Natalia Georgiivna was given the task of identifying grape varieties that are characterized by a constant high accumulation of sugars and can produce high-quality dessert wines.
As a result of a thorough study of the agrobiological and economic-technological features of the introduced varieties of the new selection, Nataliya Georgiivna established that the varieties Bastardo Magaratskyi, Saperavi Northern,
Violet early, Champanchyk Konstantinivskyi annually give a high yield of juice and are promising for cultivation in the conditions of the Northern Black Sea region for the production of dessert wines. These conclusions were tested in production conditions.
