Short description:

 

Documents attesting the vineyard goes back to 1773.

Tohani Romania  has always been a powerful place in the history of the country. In  1930, Nicolae Prince of Romania, the brother of King Carol II, becomes the owner of this vast domain. In these places,he knows the beautiful Doletti Ioana Dumitrescu, the daughter of a landlord of  Tohani. The prince  give up the throne to follow his heart and marries Ioana Doletti, in secret, on 28 October 1931, at the Church and the municipality in Tohani.

In 1948,  Tohani Romania becomes  property of the state and a wine cellar is being built, that is still available for visits and also as a museum. In those old cellars is stored the only wine vault  in the area, with over 100.000 of collection bottles.

In 2000, the company is privatized and goes through an extensive modernization process. A new factory is built with state-of-the-art technological endowments: a new infrastructure is put in place and the vine is replanted on large areas. Albertus Van Der Merwe, South-African winemaker, joins the team in Tohani, bringing a view of modernity in vinification that perfectly complements the traditional wine-making methods of the enologist Ion Marin.

In 2012, Tohani Romania becomes supplier of the Royal House of Romania, an acknowledgment of the quality and values the underpinned  companies evolution towards the status of wine-maker.

From the terroir point of view, Tohani has a cultivated area of 365 hectares that are located on the 45° parallel, like the famous Bordeaux vineyards. Located in  Dealu Mare wine region, developed on 7 hills, oriented towards to the South-East, so that the grapes enjoy 14 more days of sun than in any other wine area  in the country.
