We own and manage a surface of approximately 1.150 hectares of vines located in Recaș (Timis county) and Minis (Arad county). Our annual production and storage capacity has increased to 32.000.000 Liters. We are also the biggest wine exporter of Romanian wine, and, as a result, our wines are distributed in countries such as The United Kingdom, USA, Canada, Germany, Japan, The Netherlands, Australia, the Emirates, or Sweden.
In 2019 we became the first Romanian wine producer to receive the Vegan Certificate for all the brands produced at Cramele Recas. The document, provided by Bureau Veritas, certifies the fact that in the whole vinification process (fermentation, maturation, stabilization, rinsing etc.) we don’t use products or components of animal origin.
Over the years, we set a new trend for Romanian wine, based on quality, variety and technological innovation, in order to satisfy the taste and preferences of our consumers, domestic and abroad.
