DOMENIILE FRANCO – ROMÂNE

The first BIO vineyard in Romania

The story begins with a visionary. Our steps lead us to Dealu Mare, between Gura Vadului and Săhăteni, where Denis Thomas, owner and winemaker from Burgundy, lays the foundations of the first BIO vineyard in Romania. Assisted by a team of Romanian and French specialists, Denis Thomas takes over and develops a 45-hectare plantation, in an area of Dealu Mare, where the terroir, similar to Burgundy, allows the production of Romanian wines in pure, French spirit.

Mihnea Mihalache and Mihnea Olariu

As of 2020, Domeniile Franco – Române belong to a group of Romanian investors who intend to capitalize on their passion for viticulture and bring the wines closer to Romanian consumers but also beyond the borders. The investor’s mission aims to modernize the winery, expand the storage and vinification capacity, but also develop the BIO plantation that brought Romania, in 2006, the first Ecocert certified wine.

Mihnea Mihalache and Mihnea Olariu

As of 2020, the Franco-Romanian Domains belong to a group of Romanian investors who intend to capitalize on their passion for viticulture and bring the wines closer to Romanian consumers but also beyond the borders. The investor’s mission aims to modernize the winery, expand the storage and vinification capacity, but also develop the BIO plantation that brought Romania, in 2006, the first Ecocert certified wine.

To the 45 hectares taken over from Denis Thomas, the Olariu family added another 40 hectares with vines (a vineyard known in the Gura Vadului area as the “Persu-Eminescu Domains”). Owned before the First World War by Mihnea Olariu’s ancestors (Alexandru Persu was an agronomist engineer, former mayor of the Tohani commune and Ecaterina Eminescu – niece of the national poet Mihai Eminescu), Persu-Eminescu Domains were returned in 2002 to the investor’s parents, Marina and Nicolae Olariu. This is a family story that spans several generations, a story that goes on.

“Nous croyons dans la qualité du vin que nous produisons et nous sommes fiers d’être porteurs d’un travail commencé il y a 20 ans par Monsieur Denis Thomas dans le vignoble de Dealu Mare.”

Mihnea Olariu, Domaines Franco-Roumains

„We believe in the quality of the wine we produce and we are proud to continue the work started 20 years ago by Mr. Denis Thomas in the Dealu Mare vineyard.”

Mihnea Olariu, Franco – Romanian Domains

“Credem în calitatea vinului produs de noi și suntem mândri să ducem mai departe munca începută acum 20 de ani de către domnul Denis Thomas în podgoria Dealu Mare.”

Mihnea Olariu, Domeniile Franco-Române
