Ghislain Moritz: One of the most significant tools a wine maker has, is marital support.

VINCIS comes from Latin and it denotes victory or [...]

Interview with Victor Deleanu, youngest CEO of a Romanian winery
Compared to the main wine producers in France, Spain and Italy, Romanian wineries are still owned by a first generation of entrepreneurs. The explanation is simple.
