Property description
The most important criteria for a good quality vineyard are the soil type, the climate and the orientation towards the cardinal points. Romania is blessed with some places where these conditions harmonize happily, creating a true paradise for viticulture. The Dragaşani area is one of the oldest and most reputed ones, with a series of highly appreciated wines, part of the international contests. Located in the heart of this important area, Drăgaşi Domain is an important, well-known name on the Romanian wine market. Not only thanks to the nature’s generosity, but also because the work has been done with much care, patience and know-how, the wine being the creation of well-known Italian oenologists. The estate comprises 14 hectares of land, out of which 7.5 hectares are harvested with wine grapes, and production and storage facilities are currently insured for more than 40.000 liters. The four varieties cultivated are Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Sauvignon, and the brand under which it is bottled, Pelerin, already counts 10 wines. Drăgaşi Domain proposes a complete sensorial experience. Visually, the impact is overwhelming: the vineyard is located on a sunny slope, covered by the endless green of the hills full of vineyards, with the panorama of the Olt river. Olfactory, the perfume of the wine grapes offers a glimpse of the drink that will be prepared. The taste buds will be delighted in the restaurant, which serves as a tasting saloon as well, where all varieties of wine can be tasted alongside carefully prepared dishes. In the wine cellar, the simplicity of the vineyard is replaced by wooden barricades, metal boilers, glass and brick, and time seems to pass in a different manner. The experience is perfected by the Pelerin House, a traditional guesthouse offering five five-star rooms, finished and equipped with all the element that define modern comfort and refinement. "30 degrees under the sun. 10 degrees in the Sauvignon Blanc glass. You want to retire on the porch, but the crickets will not let you. The steps lead you through the alleys of carefully cut grass, you pass your hand over the chestnut wood of Bari that sustains the vineyard, and you plan to wake up tomorrow at 7 to hear how the beans you are drinking are growing. You notice how the perfectly parallel rows of Cabernet Franc oppose the random game of the grape bunch. Order and chaos. Drowsiness and exaltation. You choose a favourite line, maybe the 23rd, the 56th or the 8th. You smell the rose at its end and you know that you will always remember it." Victor Hugo said that "God created the water. The man created the wine." Drăgași Domain is looking for the new owner to turn it into the expression of the two working perfectly together.
