Crama SERVE din Ceptura

by Admin


In the 1990s, the great international wine critics knew about Romania that it had once made wine. But nothing more. Romania was a blank spot on the map, and the domestic market oscillated between misleading labels, defective bottles and stocks of so-called old wines from ‘privatised’ warehouses. The few wines that did make a splash on the market were demisexc and demidulci, where the rest of the sugar (or added sugar, often) had the sole purpose of masking hygiene defects.

This was the landscape in which Count Guy de Poix, a Corsican dentist with a passion for skiing, whose family had been involved in wine for generations, both at home in Corsica (Domaine Peraldi) and in the Champagne region, where they owned the famous Piper-Heidsieck, made his appearance. A series of happy events brought together Guy de Poix and Aurel Rotarescu, who became Guy’s disciple and the oenologist who, from 1994 until today, defines the soul of SERVE wines.
After Guy’s disappearance, Mihaela de POIX, together with Aurel and the SERVE team carry on the dream and belief of Count Guy de POIX.

SERVE. Excellence runs in the family. Since 1994.

Today’s episode of the Wines of Romania podcast finds us in the heart of the Great Hill, in Ceptura, the place where the new history of Romanian quality wine began. Our host, Mihaela Tyrel de Poix, continues to bring to the world, year after year, the exceptional wines that Guy de Poix, the founder of the Romanian and Corsican wineries, dreamed of. Not absent from this effort, from the beginning, is one of Romania’s leading oenologists, Aurel Rotărescu. An episode about trust, team and, of course, top Romanian wines.


The taste of a wine differs depending on your mood, your company and where you are when you taste it. So I took one of Romania’s top rosés, Cuvee Sissi de la Serve, for a stroll around Venice. Visit our platform and subscribe to our YouTube channel and discover great wines and new places!
