The new selection of classic sparkling wine Domeniile Panciu

The avatar of tradition on Vrancea Terroir



A product with an impressive history that begins with the writers of Ancient Greece and Rome first mention of "wine that sparkles" and perfected by the well known monk Dom Perignon from an abbey in Hautvillers (Epernay), which was transformed in a world renowned winery by Claude Moёt in 1743. In almost 270 years sparkling wine has become a product with one of the highest growth rate in the global market of wines.

The history of Romanian sparkling wine begins in the mid-nineteenth century with the agronomist Ion Ionescu from Brad, who first made the wine in 1841 by order of Moldova’s ruler Mihai Gr. Sturdza. Thus, at that time Romania became the fourth country in the world (after France, Germany and Russia) which locally produced sparkling wine. Due to constant work and managerial sense of the oenologist Dr. Eng. Ion Pusca, Panciu vineyard became in 1969, the place where the first classic "Panciu" sparkling wine was created. Later, it became a brand known throughout the country.

Placed on the piedmont steps of the Curvature Sub-Carpathians, the town of Tifesti can be found in the middle of the vineyards, which form Panciu vineyard in the Northern Vrancea County. The particularities of the Sarbilor Hill are the deep calcareous, clay-rich soil developed on friable loess deposits, balanced humidity, moderate temperatures with a mean annual temperature of 10,2 °C and sun exposure with a 3 degree pitch towards East North-East.

"Since 2009 Domeniile Panciu is the heart and soul of the wines produced from more than 120 hectares of vineyards located in this area. I started with a mission that over the years was at the basis of all our activities and decision-making: producing a natural Romanian quality product with continuous capitalization of Panciu vineyard potential. Thus the hard work and dedication of the team capitalized the presence on the market of a portfolio that includes a variety of products from still white wines, rose and red to sparkling wines, all classified into 4 selections Domeniile Panciu, Sagio Panciu, Riserva and Casa Panciu" says Daniel Guzu, owner of the winery.
