The vines of the Dealu Mare, which in Romanian means 'great hill slope', are the most famous and renowned vine growing area in Romania. It's 60km long on a steep hillside which starts from the southeast of the Carpathian Mountains, enjoying the sun from early morning and a good sunlight all day long. After the rain, the vines being on a gentle slope the water drains easily and the wind always dries the grapes rapidly. Famous for its red, the Dealu Mare also produces on its chalkier soils, whites of high quality.
The estate includes 15 hectares which are planted with Pinot Noir. The production of this noble grape variety is rarely over 50,000 bottles per year, which means really small yield. We have chosen to age our pinot noir in stainless steel tanks. Whilst also being certified organic by Ecoart, the vineyard follows the lunar calander with the principals of Biodynamic practice which ansd vinifies the wine in stainless steel to keep the freshness of the aromas.
This Pinot Noir is the result of the dream of a Burgundian specialist, Denis Thomas and a Romanian engineer. They were both convinced that the Dealu Mare was one of the few wine regions that could produce remarkable wine able to compete with the best Pinot Noir wines in the world.
