Basilescu winery: a successful story

The story of Basilescu winemaking begins more than 100 years ago when Aristide Basilescu, the son of a well-respected dean at the University of Bucharest, converted an old Beer distillery into a successful sparkling wine business backed by the famous French Champagne maker St. Marceaux & Co Reims. However, this success story ends abruptly in 1949, when the Romanian state seizes all goods and terrains belonging to the Basilescu family.

It was not until 2003, through the reclaiming of the vineyards, that the Basilescu legacy was to be continued and the dream of creating unique and exceptional wines predominantly from Romanian grape varieties could become a reality.

Experience the unique character of the wines at site

Crama Basilescu winery offers personality to its wines through the unique characteristics offered by the terroirs of Dealu Mare and Pietroasa. Dealu Mare Vineyard is being recognized for the refined wines it offers, especially those made from the local Fetească Neagră grape variety. Pietroasa Vineyard is also known for its tradition and the perfect climate for growing vines. But special terroirs are only part of the story of Basilescu Winery wines. From the fruit of the vine to the magic liqueur in the glass, everything is carefully planned so that the result always keeps the same quality standards.

Thus, each step in the production process and each ingredient in the composition of the liqueurs complement each other to provide a touch of magic in each bottle signed Crama Basilescu

Romanian fine wines

The vineyards, manor house, and the new winery established in 2008 represent today the place where old traditions find modern bonds. Whether it’s making first-class champaign or Romanian fine-wine, Crama Basilescu has always been a brand associated with the best Romania has to offer. The Basilescu wines are of truly impressive quality, distinguishing themselves with their elegance and representing where old traditions meet the spirit of modern winemaking.
