Avincis - Romania

Tradition & Modernity 

This winery is situated on Dobrușa Hill in Drăgășani, Southern Romania and can easily be considered one of the most beautiful wine destinations in the country.

The estate belonged to Maria and Iancu Râmniceanu, appointed officer of the Romanian army, which bought the vineyards and the Neo-Romanian style mansion in 1927. During the communism regime the estate was confiscated and a beautiful page of history was almost erased. Fortunately, in 2007 the great-granddaughter of Râmniceanu family, Cristiana, together with her husband Valeriu Stoica, managed to regain the domain and restored it completely.

Near the beautiful restored mansion, the architect Alexandru Beldiman has built this stunning winery. It is a piece of art, great integrated in the landcape, made of local limestone, glass and gravity friendly interior. The first vintage of the estate was 2011, created by a young Alsatian winemaker Ghislain Moritz together with the Italian Group Giotto Consulting and Gheorghe Lixandru.

Today there are around 40 hectares of vines under production and each parcel is carefully managed. Here the grapes are taking advantage of an outstanding sun exposure. Low yields and great care for vines, reveal wines that are becoming better and better with every vintage.

Local grape varieties include: Cramposie Selectionata, Negru de Drăgășani, Tămâioasă Românească, Fetească Regală, Novac and Fetească Neagră. The other labels include international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Merlot.
