Located in the South-West, in Mehedinti Co, Corcova is a new vineyard which continues an old tradition of winemaking that has lasted centuries. Even though Corcova Winery has only recently entered the market, it is a tradition that begins in forgotten ages. The Corcova wine bears the original footprint of the location and speaks of history, distinction and passion.
The personality of the area is given by the advantageous intertwining of climate elements with the geological specificity, proper choosing of grape strains and especially the care for the wine-making process. The climate of the area is temperate - continental, with sub-Mediterranean influences. During winter moist and warm Mediterranean and oceanic air masses invade the area, thus making this season gentler. Summers are generally warm but with chilly nights due to the proximity to forests and mountains. Corcova wines are special and have that "gout du terroir", owing to the fact that all the necessary elements meet in the same place: the temperate-continental climate with Mediterranean influence - warm and dry summers, gentle winters, with increased rain fall; the soil has a diverse lithological structure and is rich in minerals, specific to the Motru Piedmont. The Corcova Roy and Damvoviceanu team do a careful and responsible work here.
Since 2005, 60 ha of French grape vines have been replanted as well as others from the past (from the old estate of Bibescu ) - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Muscat Ottonel, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Fetească Neagră. Furthermore, the wineries that Prince Antoine Bibescu had built, were completely restored during 2008 - 2009 respecting the architectural design, and they were equipped with modern technology which allows the reaching of European standards and a high-level processing of the grapes.
