Located south of the central Carpathians, vineyards cover approximately 104,000 hectares. The vineyards are in the famous sunny wine belt (44o–45oN), on the slopes of the mountains towards the plains, but also in the region of southern Oltenia, or in areas close to the Danube.

The local micro-climate and soil create perfect environment for excellent, full-bodied red wines.The records of viniculture tradition near the Danube date back to ancient times (BC).


Visitors of Vinju Mare Winery (since 1898) should taste ancient grape varieties such as sweet white “Tămâioasă Românească 2010”, late harvest or dry red “Prince Vlad Fetească Neagră (Black Feteasca) Grand Reserve 2011”. Dry “Merlot Rosé “is worth to try ‒ it won a gold medal at Cannes (France) in 2012.

Along the 190 hectares of Vinarte Company at Starmina estate, grapes get 1,868 sunny hours for a year. During the period of 2001–2008, 41 hectares were planted with white varieties “Tămâioasă Românească” and “Sauvignon Blanc”, and red varieties of “Cabernet Sauvignon”, “Merlot”, “Negru de Drăgăşani”,“Fetească Neagră” and “Novac”.

The concept of Oprisor Vineyard, based on the birth of the Carl Reh Winery company, was created on the production of wines which would have a new and unique personality. It is a novel attitude, which comprises both the Romanian traditionalism as well as the passion invested in the products and projects, which reflects the spirit of “Carl Reh Winery”.

The Galicea Mare winery, which is located in the immediate proximity of the 50 ha vinyard, has been modernized in the past 2 years. The wine-tasting usually takes place at “Port Cetate” - an old renovated Danubian port for shipping grains.


Domeniul Coroanei Segarcea vineyard and winery are located in the south-western part of Romania, in Segarcea area. Due to the favorable climate, the estate in Segarcea was chosen, among the 12 estates, which the Royal House of Romania administrated at the end of the 19th century, as the only one suitable for vinegrowing.
