Prahova Valley Dry Sparkling Wine
The vineyards at Sebes in Transylvania are situated in one of Romania’s oldest and most renowned regions for its dry white wines. The three grape varieties used in this wine are the result of a superb vintage at Sebes.
Climate / Quality of the soil:
The cooler climate of this region, its altitude (100-600 meters above the sea level), the vicinity of Mures and Secas rivers, the early morning mists and the forest soils (brown and alluvial brown), all ensure a slow ripening of the grapes, thus preserving their delicate aromas and providing the wines with lively acidity.

Three grape varieties contribute to the complexity of blending: Chardonnay for finesse and elegance, Feteasca Regala for refreshing acidity and Riesling for fruitiness. A complex wine, with an elegant texture, silky and creamy. Aromas includes notes of pear, apple and citrus.
