A single glass of wine can reveal more than a story; my winemaking history begins with the love of nature.
When you nourish love, passion and respect for the vineyard, you are able to bring out the very best from the vines which will be then reflected within the glass.
This love carried me to the New World, where winemaking was undertaken with innovation and the latest scientific research. During the 20 years that have passed since I finished wine school, I have focused my continued education in chemistry and microbiology with a particular emphasis on the taste and smell – the vital elements for the creation of good wines. Over the years, my passion for wine has developed along with my constant dream that I would one day cultivate my own vineyard. That day has arrived and my dream has become reality.
At Săhăteni, I rely on people who have dedicated their lives to working in the vineyards. Here we make wine for those like us, who skillfully do their job with rigor and passion, people who know their goals. We don’t fabricate a perfect, sweet story without foundation or claim to have the secret knowledge of wine. Good wine depends on the grace of nature, but evolves thanks to the skill and passion of the viticulturists and winemakers. Wine is what we offer you at our best, every year, from our cellar.
This is my belief and it can be found in each and every bottle of wine I make.
