“In the traditional Romanian shawl called ”marama”, craftsmanship and modesty meet. The finest cotton or silk fabric was adorned with geometric motifs whose meaning, now almost lost, was similar to that of the signs sewn on the Romanian traditional blouse called ”ie”. Part of the traditional Romanian garments, it was worn with dignity by both the queen and by simple women, on holidays.
For ”Domeniul Coroanei” Segarcea , this symbol has inspired these six wines made from 100% Romanian vine varieties. They bring joy to the man who carries his history and traditions in his heart. And, as a model vineyard of the kings of Romania, we send a reverence over time to the one who consecrated the invaluable custom of wearing the ”marama”, Queen Maria, the one who stood by King Ferdinand at the Great Union.”
“Although the centenary of its discovery and homologation is approaching, the Featesca Regală is not yet fully known. It has been long been believed that its parents are Feteasca Albă and Grasa, but recent studies have rejected this hypothesis. In Segarcea, we have been growing these grapes on an area of 3 hectares, for 15 years, until we discovered the full potential of the variety.”

The vineyard of “Domeniul Coroanei” covers 277 hectares. Its location in an amphitheater open to the south ensures a record number of hours of sunshine per vegetation cycle (from the first buds in spring to hibernation). The soil consists of a layer of chernozem, under which there is a layer of limestone, then a former seabed, this structure gives the wine the acidity that perfectly complements the character of well-ripened wine fruit.
The 277 hectares of vineyards have been completely replanted, with the exception of some old stumps more than a century old, which allowed a unique variety, “Tămâioasa Roză”, to be saved.
The estate has 3.3 hectares of Fetească regală, planted at a density of 5,600 plants per hectare. The pruning method is simple Guyot.
“In all work in the vineyard, we try to stay as close as possible to traditional methods and use the most appropriate solutions, so that we coexist with nature and do not exploit it. From grazing (to prevent excess water after rainfall) to drainage, from a minimum of synthetic substances to more than 30,000 rose nests planted at each end of the row to give us timely warning of impending infections such as downy mildew, powdery mildew or other vine infections, we try to create a harmonious whole and the biodiversity (both flora and fauna) reborn around the vineyard is proof that we have chosen the best path.”
