Join us on a wine tasting day trip and discover two state of the art wineries in the Dealu Mare region! Here you will learn how grapes make their way from beautiful vineyards into the gorgeous liquid in the glass, in your hands!
This tour will take us on a 90min ride through the Romanian countryside towards a somewhat older Napa Valley of Romania, as how we call our Dealu Mare region. The existence of vines in ancient times on this territory has been confirmed by archaeological excavations, pottery remains and the toponymy. The first written documents related to the existence of vine culture in this part of the country dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries.
We chose this region because of the eclectic soil and the Carpathian Mountains that create the perfect conditions to cultivate exceptional varieties of red, white and aromatic wines. Particularly, Fetească Neagră, which can be found only in Romania. Don’t worry, we’ll be tasting more than 10 varieties of wine (white, red and rose) and we’ll be finding out more about the wine industry in Romania.
And because we realize that wine goes extremely well with food, in between the visit to the 2 wineries, we’ll have lunch at a traditional “Dacian culture” farm to enjoy a platter of home style cheeses and meats or the local soup.
In this day tour, you’ll have time to taste some fine wine, learn about wine traditions, enjoy a homestyle lunch and take in and document on Instagram all the beautiful landscapes we’ll pass by.
