THE WINERY STORY
Crama Țelna draws its sap from the Alba Iulia vineyard, one of the oldest vineyards in Transylvania. Șard, Țelna, Cricău and Ighiu form the "heart of the vineyard".
The vineyard has a privileged geographical position, at a high altitude of over 600 m, sheltered from winds, cold currents or mists, with a mild climate and long autumns that give the grapes time to ripen.
The entire winemaking process is managed by a team of Italian oenologists and specialists.
Dug 20-25 metres below the hill surrounding the manor house in 1784, the cellar of the Cramei Țelna is unique in the region. Shaped like a letter "U", it is no less than 150 metres long and 6 metres wide. Here, the temperature (10-11°C) and humidity (98-100%) are constant throughout the year thanks to the noble mould and natural ventilation.
