The Story of the House of Wines
The history and philosophy of our vineyard
Our wine cellar is located in Beltiug in the North-Western Transylvania, in Romania. We have exploited 23 ha of vineyard in excellent conditions. In our location we have a 300 years old wine cellar, next to which we built a new wine cellar, where all grapes are processed.
If you want to understand our wines, you have to reconsider all your knowledge or expectations on wines. Our wines are special and somehow different. This is due to the uniqueness of our area our philosophy and not last the people who contribute to the manufacturing process.
As we harvest the grapes in the vineyard, as naturally they are processed into wine. We consciously give up the additives, as yeast or enzymes or other technical interventions in winery. The only thing used in our wine production, are grapes. This is why, our wine is distinguished by its individual/independent character and it differs a lot from the ordinary.
Since 2010 the vineyards have been worked in a ecological way. We give up herbicide, synthesized pesticide and mineral fertilizer. This requires higher involvement and hard work on our side, but this is needed to preserve the uniqueness of our area. Rich species of flora and fauna emphasize the specific of the terroir, and our belief is that in this way we improve the quality of our wines.
The soil and climate represent the foundation of viticulture. In Beltiug, there are different types of clays and a moderate climate – warm, which offers the best conditions for producing white and red wines at the best quality. Having a wide range of slopes, the Nachbil vineyard offers different possibilities in producing individual wines.
