6 Day Vegan cooking, Transylvanian Wine Tasting with Yoga & wellness

Join us this August in a week of learning how to create variety in your kitchen through plant based seasonal, wholesome, healthy vegan cooking, principles of Integrative Nutrition, and clean eating. We will jointly create dishes that can be enjoyed by all and learn how to combine ingredients to create a plate of goodness, a plate that you can be grateful for, that is good for you and it’s not just another meal. No diets, no fads, nothing fancy, nothing fake. Simply home cooking that is plant based, fresh & healthy.

We’ll start each day with sunrise yoga session, breakfast & daily cooking demonstrations and presentations that will surprise and inform you on how to form good habits and how to create a healthy home menu for yourself and the whole family.

Discovering Romania …and its wine!!

Maria Galbeaza, founder and Chairman of the The Wine Tourism Association (“Asociația de Enoturism”) will bring a selection of Romanian wines for us to taste & discover as well as her knowledge and passion for the winemaking tradition of Romania, a truly special and unique addition to our wellness experience right here in Transylvania.

Romania represents an important European wine producing country providing a great historical past and fine customs, most of them directly related to wine. The presence of the vineyards all around the wine regions such as: Dealu Mare, Drăgășani, Dobrogea, Moldova, Transylvania reflect nothing else but the Romanian wine culture.

In terms of wine production, Romania is in the first 15 countries in the world. In Europe it helds the 6th position behind Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Germany.

Some of the wines we will be tasting & enjoying on 2 very special evenings paired with a delicious 3 course vegan menu:

White wines – Romanian white varieties are: Grasa de Cotnari, Tămâioasă Românească, Fetească Albă Fetească Regală, Șarbă, Plăvaie, etc.

Red wines – Romanian red varieties: Fetească Neagră, Novac, Negru de Drăgășani, Cadarcă.
