Unveil Romania Travel Planner

Follow Romania’s ancient wine road, re-opened after decades of decay. Taste 12 top quality wines along with local cheese & charcuterie and explore old manors, endless vineyards and charming wineries

Bellu Mansion Museum

Enjoy an epic day trip from Bucharest, following one of Romania's ancient wine roads. Re-opened to the public after decades of "hibernation", the road displays beautifully restored manors, cellars, and old monasteries. Along the way, you’ll visit a wine museum and enjoy wine tasting sessions at two prestigious wineries, surrounded by the endless vineyards of Dealu Mare, Romania’s most famous wine region. Short history: Romania is a country with a long-standing tradition in winemaking, and the world’s 12th wine producer, despite losing half of its arable lands and suffering a loss of prestige several decades ago, when communists favored mass production over quality. Nowadays, the country has gone through a process of mass restoration, aiming to reclaim its rightful place among the top 10 wine producers. Itinerary description: 1st stop: Bellu Manor Wine Museum Your guide will pick you up from the hotel and drive you to Dealu Mare. The first stop is at Bellu Manor, a marvel of old Romanian architecture. Built by Baron Alexandru Bellu in the 19th century, the manor is not just a great art collection, but also a wine museum. With a great passion for wine and even owning a sparkling wine factory, the baron stored precious tools in the manor’s great cellar, some of which go back to the 3rd century 2nd stop: Lacerta Winery After learning about the long history of winemaking in Romania, it’s time for some actual wine tasting at Lacerta Winery. Same as Bordeaux and Toscana, Lacerta’s vine estate stretches along the 45th parallel and thus has the ideal climate for producing wines with a rich, complex and silken taste. Lacerta is one of the most modern wineries in Romania, with production techniques based on gravitational principles meant to limit the usage of pumps. You’ll be able to taste 6 types of high-quality Romanian wines alongside small plates of cheese and dry sausages in a fairytale location, surrounded by the endless vineyards covering the hills of Dealu Mare, at one of the most beautiful wineries in the country. 3rd stop: Casa Colinelor - 1000 Chipuri Winery The third and final stop of the day is at Casa Colinelor (Hill House) where the 1000 Chipuri (1000 Faces) Winery is located. Here you have the option of having lunch and after that you can start the guided tour of the property. During the wine tasting, you will admire the beautiful vineyards surrounding the house and you will also be able to see the cellars and production facilities. There will be 6 glasses of wine, served alongside typical wine snacks. All the wines come from 1000 Chipuri, one of the most highly praised boutique wineries from the Dealu Mare wine region.
