At Cotnari, heritage is unmatched. Through the craft of wine, which is over two thousand years old, tradition, art and good will shine, once again, together.

Under the Eastern sun, where the relief takes on majestic undulations, the most precious fruit of the earth looks like a divine promise, the promise to turn into wine. But not just any wine, but of those that are too noble to drink. Cotnari wine is intended for tasting to have the chance to tell you the story of each berry that composes it.
It is good to choose Romanian wines, in general, and as a novelty we have exceptional wines, such as Grasa de Cotnari vinified dry, with an unmistakable freshness and fruitiness, a wine that we can associate with appetizers at the beginning of the meal.
I’m glad that the wine of Cotnari is coming to the fore again. The best-selling wine, Grasa de Cotnari, is known not only on the national but also on the international market. The quality of the wine cannot exceed the quality of the grapes.
Set off from the hills of Cotnari to the whole world, the wines here carry with them a special story. The flavor of tradition bathed in time combines the strong taste of blessed nature with a color that, in the case of white varieties, recalls the clarity of a September afternoon. Fluffy and incandescent like early spring and late fall, the rosé varieties picture the cycle of life and the joy of harvest. The depth and virtue of the red varieties are reminiscent of the warmth of the stories of yesteryear, told at the mouth of the stove under the passion of frosty days.
