The Odobesti Vinex Company was founded in 2002, and in 2005 the modernisation and technological refitting for European standards were finished; it can process over 1.000 tons of grapes, and wines are kept in stainless steel tanks and oak casks.
The pride of the company is a cellar dating back to the 18th century, completely restored, which keeps over 3.000 hl of wine for aging, in stainless steel tanks and oak casks.
The company’s specialists grow grapevines on a surface of 65 ha, of which, in the last few years, they have managed to replant 35 ha with young vines, with well-loved varieties of both Europe and Romania, such as: Galbenă de Odobeşti, Şarbă, Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Rhine Riesling, Fetească Regală, Plavaie, Mustoasă de Maderat, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Fetească Neagră.
The Şarbă Odobeşti plain, the location of the Şarbă Winery, owned by the Odobeşti Vinex company, is situated on the foothills of the Subcarpaţi de Curbură mountains, and its vineyards stretch up to the forests of the Crăciuna Monastery and the top of the Măgura Odobeştilor. Its excellent exposure to the sun from the east and south-east ensured by its geographical position, the particularities of its soil, and its balanced humidity make the wines of this vineyard the most sublime product of the work of both nature and man.
Sarba and Galbena de Odobesti varieties are representative varieties which have best adapted to these blessed lands.
Galbenă de Odobeşti, a noble variety, is a natural selection, created without human involvement. This variety has been in these lands since the dawn of times. The best pedoclimatic conditions favourable to this variety can be found on the Şarbă hill, which belongs to the Măgura Odobeştilor piedmont.
This year we aim to bottle AOC selected wines, superpremium wines, on the structure of the “Blazon Domnesc” brand, as well as premium IG wines on the structure of the “Dinastie” brand and in 10-liter BIBs.
