Avincis - the Renaissance of Romania

The Avincis estate, situated on a hill in the cultivation area of Dragaşani in the south of Romania, is an ambitious newcomer - and its path leads steeply to the top. In 2007, Bucharest lawyer Cristiana Stoica, together with her husband Valeriu, restored the maternal property once exempted by the communists and turned it into a super modern winery. The young Alsatian oenologist Ghislain Moritz got a free hand in the cellar and has ever since been showing year after year what is possible in Romania in terms of quality. From the Crampoşie Selectionata and Negru de Dragaşani, from Feteasca Regala and Tamaioasa Romaneasca, and from Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Ottonel, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, he now produces more than 150,000 liters a year. All are strong character wines with their own terroir notes and signatures - from a region already famous for the exceptional quality of its wines and has now developed into a new greatness. As evidence of this, Avincis' Negru de Dragaşani has already made it to some top restaurants in London.

In the expanse above the River Olt, tradition and new technology are a perfect combination. The quality standard is very high with the aim to create distinctive wines with their own identity. The winery was built into the Dobruşa Hills according to the most modern criteria, with chic guest apartments and a restaurant included, and could just as well be located in California or La Rioja. A separate product line ("Domnul de Roua") was developed in 2016 for the Horeca area, and another for the retail trade ("Vila Dobruşa"). Due to the growing production, the export is becoming increasingly important for the emerging winery. In Belgium, Great Britain and Japan, Avincis is already represented, while an importer is still being sought for Germany.

If you are interested in experiencing a part of the renaissance of Romania (the country is one of the largest wine-growing regions in Europe with around 200,000 hectares of vineyards), you will have the opportunity to taste exciting wines from a region with enormous future potential and to get to know the Avincis team personally during the ProWein 2017 at stand G37 in Hall 15. There will also be a guided tasting with Carsten Henn at the VINUM stand 13 C39 on Tuesday, 21 March at 10.00.

About us

Company details

Family tradition with a bouquet

The Vila Dobrușa estate is a project that has three dimensions.

First of all, at its basis is the desire to recover the family’s memory.

As a continuation of this family tradition, but also the much richer and older tradition of the Drăgășani vineyard, our project is centered on the viticultural and oenological dimension.

The ambition to showcase indigenous varieties in a dialogue with international varieties has a propitious support in the calcareous and clayey terroir of the Dobrușa hill. The AVINCIS wines combine the essences of this terroir and the light of sunrises, afternoons and sunsets.

The third dimension is given by the architectural and landscape vision that Alexandru Beldiman has put into practice. The subtle play of spatial shapes, the complementarity between the Neo-Brâncovenesc style of the manor and the aspect of the winery, the constantly surprising alternation between rock, wood, glass and metal, the consonance of the entire composition with the cosmic rhythms of the place, from sunset and sunrise until the evolution of the phases of the moon under the geometry of the fixed stars, all of these are the expression of the metaphysical dimension of the project and confer it a type of cultural potential which is capitalized at the present time and will be fulfilled even more in the future.

In its entirety, the Vila Dobrușa project is a space of freedom and communication. Whoever enters this space discovers another Romania, the one of the job well done, of beauty and of harmony.
