Short description: Siminoc winery, founded in 1995, is located in the centre of the village with the same name. By the end of 2009 the winery had been completely modernised under a FEADR project.
Today the winery has a processing capacity of 200 tons of grapes and a storage capacity of 80 000 L (stainless steel barrels are used). The winery is equipped with: air pressure, steel wine makers, cold fermentation facility, controlled cooling system for filters, pumps and so on.
To obtain a higher quality, the selection of the grapes takes place in the vineyard; they are picked in boxes of 15 to 20 kg in order to avoid their compaction and oxidation of the unfermented wine. Furthermore, before going into production the grapes are sifted out once more. Bottling is semi-automatic with a capacity of 350 bottles per hour. The aging and maturation are done in 225 liter oak Romanian and French barrels.
Vladoi family follows the tradition of vine cultivation at Siminoc. They have inherited an area of about 19 ha of noble vine. The estate is situated near the village Siminoc, Murfatlar vineyard. With a generous exposure to the south, a soil rich in calcareous clays and favoured with a breeze of wind (only 19 km from the Black Sea) the estate has all the necessary conditions to obtain quality wines. Because the vine was very old, it was replaced in 2006 with modern varieties. Today the estate owns 17 hectares of vine, most of which are vines bearing edible fruit. The estate is equipped with a drip irrigation system, and modern equipments are used.
The vineyards include domestic and international varieties such as: Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Ottonel, Chardonnay, Tamaioasa Romaneasca, Feteasca Regala, Italian Riesling Italian for white wines; for red wines: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Feteasca Neagra, Syrah. Vladoi family founded in 2008 an orchard of about 1.5 ha with these varieties: nectarines, apricots, cherries, quinces, plums and apples.
