THE ICONIC ESTATE
THE ICONIC ESTATE is a combination of history, tradition, experience and passion, dating back to 1892.
The Iconic Estate is one of the largest Romanian bottled wine producers and exporters, having over 60% of the annual production sold abroad. Our wines are awarded by the most prestigious international competitions and we are the first Romanian wine producer to be awarded The Grand Gold Medal at “Concours Mondial de Bruxelles”. Our winery is successfully capitalizing on the potential and diversity of Romania’s most prominent wine regions, owning around 250 hectares of vineyards in Dealu Mare and other wine regions. A part of vineyard is irrigated by drip and it’s certified as organic.
Dealu Mare (or Big Hill), located within Dealurile Munteniei (Muntenia’s Hills) wine region, has deep roots in the history of the region which is called the “land of red wines”. The typical warm, dry microclimate and the rather long autumns favours a slow and thorough ripening of the grapes. There is a long vegetation time of 210-240 days with a maximum humidity of 55-80%. The soil here is strewn with marine fossils and the grapes enjoy the perfect combination of warm days and cool nights.
