Vineyard AVINCIS - Vila Dobruşa

AVINCIS is the symbol of the revival of Romanian wines, marking a return to tradition and a glance to modernity. This is what AVINCIS means for Valeriu and Cristiana Stoica, who have decided to give a new life to the family’s vineyard situated in the sub-Carpathian region, at the gates of the Monasteries in the North of Oltenia.

Even at the very first glance, the location of the Vila Dobruşa, where the Avincis wines are produced, looks like a hill blessed by God. This vineyard suitable in size (30 planted hectares) practically covers the entire hill as well as its slopes gently descending towards the valleys. The exposure to the sun is exceptional, the plateau absorbing the first sun rays and preserving the last ones...
