Brief History of the Winery
Between the period of the two World Wars, the wine cellar was known as the official wine purveyor of the Romanian Royal Family and has since then maintained its status as one of the leading winemakers in Romania. The cellars of the Rhein Wine Cellar were built between the years of 188 and 1892 by a German investor named Rhein. Rhein came to the area with other investors at the time of the building of the Peles Castle which was commissioned by King Carol I of Romania. Today the Azuga Rhein Wine Cellar belongs to the Halewood Winery.
It is still one of the oldest Romanian wineries to make use of the traditional Champenoise method for producing sparkling wines which involves fermenting wine while it is kept in a glass bottle.

In 2006, the Azuga Rhein Wine Cellar winery was appointed the official wine supplier of His Majesty King Michael I of Romania. The Azuga Rhein Wine Cellar is located about 45 minutes away from the famous Bran Castle which is a popular tourist destination in the area. The estate is well known for its welcoming atmosphere and warm hospitality and guests who would like to extend their stay are welcome to book a room and stay a night or two.
