Stirbey Winery - Rebirth of a tradition

For over 300 years, the Stirbey Family has owned vineyards in the Dragasani wine region. Wines are grown here according to well-developed principles, preserved by each generation. We wish to preserve those principles and pass them on to the future generations.

We are devoted to traditional grape varieties that have evolved over the centuries. They have adapted to the pedo-climatic conditions of the vineyard and only there can they fully develop their personality. Vinifying them separately, we are only producing single grape wines in order to reveal the individual character of each variety.

S.E.R.V.E. Winery - Ceptura

A 6 lines description in “The World Atlas of Wine”, written by Hugh Johnson, was enough to bring Romanian terroir to the attention of Count Guy Tyrell de Poix, a French dentist and wine aficionado, descendant of a winemaking family with a tradition of over 600 years in this industry. Sensing the potential of Romanian wine regions, he left behind the Corsican wine domain he was managing (Domaine Peraldi). He arrived in Romania in 1993, at Ceptura, Dealu Mare, and he was mesmerized by the Feteasca Neagra created by a young winemaker, called Aurel Rotarescu…this is how our story begun. And so, in 1994, S.E.R.V.E.( The Euro-Romanian Exceptional Wines Company) was established, the first and for many years, the only private winemaking company in the country. 1994 is also the year of our grand debut, when we launched the Vinul Cavalerului range, which became an instant success.

We can get to know a Country History and culture by getting to know its Food and Wine. No other two elements can get you the idea of the history of a country as food and wine, reflect all different cultures that crossed our paths from the antiquity to our days.

While Romanian Cuisine has clear Turkish, Ukrainian, Russian, Hungarian, German, Serbian, Bulgarian and other cultures influences, archaeological finds and historical documents place the beginnings of wine culture on the present territory of Romania some 4000 years ago. High quality wines produced in this region were object of trade ever since ancient times. 

Legends of these places say that the country was so rich in vineyards that it is believed that Dionysos, the god of wine, was born in Thracia, on what is nowadays the territory Dobrogea (South-East of Romania).

Wine growing has been known for centuries long in Romania. The country has been favored by its geographical position in South-Eastern Europe, by its proximity to the Black Sea, as well as by the specificity of the local soil and climate.

Alongside France, Italy, Spain, Germany, countries in this area like Romania could also be called "a vine homeland" in Europe.
