6000 years of winemaking tradition, fertile soils and climatically preferred vineyards make Romania an insider’s tip for quality wines. Merlot is one of the most popular red wine varietals in the world. Romania supplies our Merlot grapes with the perfect growing conditions, i.e. a mild-warm continental climate with sufficient water supply. The Romanian wine regions around Oprisor are on the same latitude as the famous vineyards of Bordeaux in France or of Piedmont in Italy. The relatively mild continental climate provides ideal conditions for viticulture, additionally benefitting of many hours of sunshine a day. In these optimal conditions the quality wines of the Val Duna line thrive and thereby obtain their distinctive flavour.
