Murfatlar vineyard

   Benefiting from one of the most suitable natural sites, the Murfatlar vineyard is located in the southeast of Romania, between the Danube and the Black Sea, in the center of the Dobrogea Plateau. It is the place where the vines have lived for thousands of years. Here the sun shines brighter than anywhere, the vines grow vigorously in the arid soil specific to the region, and the rainfall is reduced. All this justifies to say that "Murfatlar is a blessed place".

   The Romanian wine culture has existed for almost 6,000 years. Legend has it that the god of wine Dionysus himself, would have been born on these wonderful lands belonging to ancient Thrace.

   After Dacia was conquered by the Romans in 106 AD, on the coins beaten by the conquerors, the new province was represented by a woman whose two sons offered her grapes.

   Murfatlar vineyard is considered to be one of the oldest in Europe.

   The fame of the vineyard and of the Murfatlar wine has far exceeded the borders of our country, the wines are awarded at a number of international competitions, obtaining over 190 medals over the years.

   In 1907 at the initiative of two Romanian wine growers Gheorghe Nicoleanu and Vasile Brezeanu, noble varieties of western European vineyards are planted, initially for experimental purposes. Gradually the area cultivated with vines expanded to about 3,000 ha.
