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.
