About us

We love Yoga  & We love Wine, are you with us?

If It’s a yes, you’re in for a re/treat.

Transylvania or even Romania may not be known for it’s wine outside our little country, and that needs to change. We’re doing our part in promoting what we believe is a culture of making wine on par to that of France, Italy or Spain. We’ve invited a local sommelier to explain a little about what why and how wine is made here in Romania, the different textures, colours & tastes of different regions of Romania that we believe are a must try.

And because with wine comes food,  you’ll also enjoy a 3 course menu with each wine tasting complete with nut cheeses & canapes.

About Romania’s wine making culture

Given the strong Southern European influence in Romania’s past, it is no surprise that wine has played a significant part in Romanian culture at various points. Wine and vine production pre-date even the Romans here in Romania; there is archaeological evidence that viticulture has continued here almost uninterrupted for almost 6000 years. If Romania’s history doesn’t automatically suggest it as a likely wine-producing nation, its location does. It occupies much the same latitudes as France’s key wine regions.

Our little country boasts four wine-making regions. The Murfatlar region lies near the Black Sea and enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year. The area produces sweet wines. Farther north and inland, the Cotnari area also produces sweet wines and was a favorite of Stephen the Great, a 15th century Moldavian ruler who even had roads paved to the area to transport the fine wine. The Tarnave wine regions sits in Transylvania, where the high altitude produces fruity, acidic wines. In the south, the Dealu Mare region extends over the sub-Carpathian Hills and is known for its red wines.

Since the 19th century, winemakers from France, Italy and Germany have invested in Romanian vineyards. They introduced their traditional grapes, such as those used to make merlot, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc, all of which now are produced in Romania. But native Romanian grapes also produce distinctive Romanian wines that are popular with locals and tourists alike. Grape varieties include francusa, feteasca alba, tamaioasa, feteasca neagra and babeasca grapes. Winemakers create both dry and sweet wines and feature many fruity, full-bodied varieties. Cadarca, a popular deep-red wine with a clove taste once was the official wine of the imperial court of Vienna in the 18th century.
