Aurelia Vişinescu Winery

Winemaker Aurelia Vişinescu and Steve Cacenco established Domeniile Săhăteni in 2003 as a family business.

The winery is located in the heart of the Dealu Mare wine region, well known for high quality wine. The 76 hectares of vineyards are close to the winery, on the hills surrounding the Carpathian Mountains, located in Săhăteni, Naeni and Fintești villages (map 18). Here the white and Pinot Noir grapes are cultivated from the bottom to the top of the hill, where the late harvest reds can be found. The native varieties include: Fetească Albă, Tămâioasă Românească and Fetească Neagră, while the international varieties are more abundant: Sauvignon Blanc, Chadonnay, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon. The aim of the winemaker is to
produce wines that reflect the character of the variety with the strong influence of the terroir. The wines are normally produced in small quantity, being a mix of singular grape variety and blended.

Artisan is the wine dedicated to local Romanian varieties specific to the area of Dealu Mare.
Artisan wines represent the fine balance between skill and inspiration. They bear the fingerprint and personality of winemaker Aurelia Vișinescu. Their aim is not to be perfect or conform to a common standard but to be expressive of the land they belong to. These are wines with an identity, living wines.

Anima is an exclusive wine, created with passion and involvement of mind, body and soul. Anima private collection is a celebration of wine. Dedication and passion for wine are the defining features of the people who work at Domeniile Săhăteni. The administrative office is based in Bucharest, while the production, quality control and logistics personnel are located at the winery. The wines produced at Domeniile Săhăteni are distributed both nationally and internationally.
