In the heart of Dealu Mare, in an area with rolling hills, caressed by the sun, we find the Budureasca vineyards – an ancient place, with deep roots in the history of wine culture. The archaeological evidence found nearby suggests that this place has a particularly rich tradition in winemaking since Dacian times.

Budureasca is one of the representative hearths of the multimillenary life of the Middle Paleolithic and Early Neolithic Pretracic, along the Thracian Bronze Age and Iron Geto - Dacians civilization, until the the age of the formation of Roman people: from the free Dacians and Daco-Romans, to the ancient Romans.

BudureascaValley is settled in the first sub-Carpathian hills, 30 km E-N-Eawayfrom the city of Ploiesti. Budureasca river terraces include 31 archaeological sites, the densest ancient human group in Dacia.
Furthermore, the writings of the ancient historians also speak about the wines produced in this area. For example, Homer, the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey stated that the "Greek warriors went into Thrace to find wine".
It is well known that Burebista – the Dacian chief, at his high priest's advice, decided to cut down the grapevine. What is less known is that he took this decision not only to reduce the wine consumption, but also to reduce the foreign interest in Dacian territories.
Additionally, the fact that today’s spoken language has still kept a few Dacian terms, such as: barrel, grape and tendril is another proof of the importance given by the locals to the grape-vine culture.
Nowadays, the wines from these vineyards are well known and appreciated for their unique quality, but also for being able to adapt to the Modern World. These things wouldn't have been possible without the endeavour and the passion of the people who craft them.
On these hills, among the vestiges of the ancient Dacian civilization from Budureasca Valley , we are skilled in the craftsmanship of Budureasca wines in genuine respect for nature, to the liquor itself and also to our customers.
From the noble legacy of these hills we kept pride, simplicity and honesty. For truly noble Romanian wines.

Budureasca vineyards are cultivated on an area of 280 ha, divided into 250 ha of vines which have been replanted in 2010-2011, and 30 ha of old vines. They are located at an altitude of 175-400 m and the climatic conditions favour the growing of black grape varieties. These varieties consume a much larger amount of energy than white varieties in order to reach full maturity and quality and within Budureasca vineyards the climate and soil conditions make available this very extra energy. Black grape varieties need this extra energy for both cooking and especially for the synthesis of dyestuffs.
