THE WINERY STORY
The history of about 500 years of vine cultivation in Dealu Mare vineyard, determines us every day to keep the tradition of producing quality wines. The 110 hectares of the company’s estate, divided between Urlați and Ceptura, 35 of which are replanted, have the advantage of total southern exposure, which ensures maximum sun exposure throughout the growing season. The varieties grown are: Fetească Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Ottonel, Riesling, Fetească Neagră, Cabernet Sauvignon.

Enoturim (maximum 1250 characters, spaces included): A wine tourism project born in Tohani and located in the centre of Romania, just 90km from Bucharest, the APOGEUM complex is the result of a lifetime of work, vision and ambition. Consisting of a 100 year old manor house, refurbished to its former glory, a wine cellar with spectacular ceramic amphorae, a cellar housing true treasures of Romanian wine and a small manor house specially renovated to accommodate tourists, the APOGEUM ensemble offers wine lovers and travellers the complete oenological experience: 40 accommodation places, outdoor terrace in the vineyard, ballroom, restaurant, tastings at the winery or in romantic tours in the vineyard, picnics in the heights or in the green grass of the manor. Here you can taste the finest wines born in Tohani, among stories of royal love, history and passion. The project took several years to reach its current form and is part of the vision of TOHANI Romania and APOGEUM owner – Virgil Mândru – to make the Dealu Mare area a tourist area par excellence, adding value to the already well represented wine industry in the area.
