Caloian – Rhein Riesling – LIMITED EDITION – A Mineral And Exotic Romanian Treasure

Caloian is a series that, as we have come to expect from Crama Oprisor, is inspired by local traditions. The name Caloian refers to an ancient ritual custom where, on the 3rd Tuesday after the Orthodox celebration of Easter, a doll made of clay or wood is used: the Caloian. Boys and girls get together and dance the traditional dance “hora” until late in the evening. Traditional instruments such as the flute and cimpoi (bagpipes) are often played, and songs invoking rain and abundance are sung.

Reflecting the climatic characteristics and soils of Deep Oltenia, the wines of Crama Oprișorului reveal their unique character. Unlike German Riesling, which is characterized by tumultuous acidity and overwhelming aromatic intensity with nuances of acacia blossom and freshly cut grass, CALOIAN Rhein Riesling offers a unique and refined experience for white wine lovers. Discover the richness of Romanian wine tradition with this outstanding Riesling.


Tasting Description
Comparing Rieslings from Oltenia to those from Germany, CALOIAN Rhein Riesling reveals a treasure trove of mineral-exotic flavors infused with subtle notes of grapefruit and lime peel. The first sip reveals a soft acidity that is surprisingly refreshing, a balanced body and a subtly spicy finish reminiscent of fresh mango fruit and a hint of ginger.


Serving suggestion
CALOIAN Rhein Riesling is the perfect companion for a range of culinary pleasures. Pair this wine with classic dishes such as a Caesar Salad for a harmonious taste experience. Its delicate acidity and mineral-rich characteristics also make it an excellent choice to serve with white fish and seafood. This wine will bring out the flavors of dishes and create an unforgettable gastronomic experience.



The Crama Oprisor winery is located in the Drincea Valley. Vines have been present here since the 15th century. The hills of Golul Drincei form a beautiful viticultural “amphitheater” and this area is famous for producing high quality wines.

The vineyard of Crama Oprisor has a temperate climate with influence of the Danube and Carpathian rivers. The vineyards are located on the north-south slope. The soil has a high clay and humus content.
