.
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes at Lacerta Winery Overview

I warmly invite you to enjoy wine tasting in the wine region of Dealu Mare, on a day tour from Bucharest. The vineyards of Dealu Mare in Prahova County lie on gentle slopes on the southern foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, some 100 km north-east of Bucharest. Dealu Mare is one of the major wine regions in Romania, considered the realm of Romanian red wine. 

Discover and learn about Romanian wines, including wines made from local grapes such as the famous Feteasca Neagra. More than just a wine tasting tour, this is an authentic Romanian experience as we travel through off-the-beaten-track rural countryside in a region that is still virtually unknown to tourism.

“People who discover Romanian wines are astounded at their quality.”
Swiss Ambassador to Romania Jean-Hubert Lebet quoted in news agency Agerpress, 4 June 2014

“The wine tourism in Romania will soon be ‘dynamite'” (William, US)

“The wines we tasted were absolutely fantastic! Romanian wine is definitely underrated.” (Jeroen, Belgium)

“Unlike most wine tastings and tours in the states, this tour was incredibly personal and detailed, introducing us to every step of the wine making process and even letting us taste wine from the barrel at different stages.”(Adrienne, US)
