Minima Moralia can be a definition of the values of our humanity and a wine called Minima Moralia cannot settle for halves of measure, but only seek the simplicity of perfection.
Minima Moralia is the name of the set of values on which humanity was built: stable pillars, strongly anchored, but as high as the universe. And why would anyone want to meditate on the principles of life while enjoying a glass of wine? Because the connection between values and wine is eternal, and wine and morality seem to have common roots.
HONOUR, RESPECT, DEVOTION, HOPE, GRATITUDE, HONESTY are the names of special, barrique and mature blends, as only maturity knows how to polish a character. Meditating on humanity and enjoying the company of these refined characters, you might think that nature and human nature are not so different after all…

„ In this world, the only way to live in honor is to truly be what you claim to be.”
An “alchemical” blend, but one that takes into account the eternal rules that created in the past what was called “regional assortment”. Thus was born a wine whose olfactory debut is explosive, with initial aromas of fine pollen, dried flowers, Sambucus, hay and vanilla. After aeration, the flavours are dominated by honey, fruit pulp and acacia. Gustatory, it confirms the complexity of flavours. A central element, fructose, is surrounded by extreme sensations, on the one hand, the freshness given by high acidity, on the other that of the aromas of a mature wine – butter and vanilla, contained in a solid, round body.
Recommended temperature 11ºC – 13ºC.
The estate has 14.6 hectares of Fetească Albă, 35.3 hectares of Chardonnay, 27.3 hectares of Sauvignon and 13 hectares of Pinot Gris, planted with a density of 5,000 – 5,600 plants per hectare. The arrangement of the plants is from north to south, on a clay-limestone soil. The pruning mode is simple Guyot. The grapes were harvested mechanically at night. For
Sauvignon and Pinot Gris, direct pressing was done, and for Chardonnay and Fetească albă, film maceration was chosen for 12 hours. Part of the Chardonnay was matured in new and second passage French oak barrels for 6 months. For the rest of the varieties, the maturation was done in stainless steel tanks, on fine yeasts
Bordeaux, Burgundy, Piedmont and “Domeniul Coroanei” Segarcea share the 44º parallel, the unparalleled wine parallel.
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.
“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.”
