Bauer Wineries Natural Creativity

Wine and sense of branding

Being a kilometer away from the winery of Stirbey, Oliver has put his heart and soul into making this a successful venture out of his sheer love for the Romanian wine culture. 

He has done a great deal of work to make Bauer Winery a domestic name for the locals with his traditional winemaking skills, putting fair use of the terroir into effect. The tours of the Bauer Winery are generally hosted by him. So, if you want to meet the owner of such a blooming winery in Drăgășani, you can definitely book the tickets to this one because no wine touring experience feels closer than the one given by the owner himself. 

Sited in the hills of Drăgășani vineyard, the Bauer Winery has some of the rarest varieties of wine to offer, which are grown in old plots of land. The vineyard of Bauer Winery is only a short walk away from Oliver’s personal abode and there’s no doubt in the fact that you will be met with amazing food and hospitality, including a taste of their best wines. The tour not only includes serving you with a proper glass of wine but to also fill in the wine enthusiasts with details about the quality and processing of the wine.

Being a fairly small winery, the quality of the wines produced by Bauer Winery is top-notch. Instead of looking into what’s selling in the market, the winery opts for the ones which grow well in their vineyards, therefore producing the very best quality of grapes. The winery surely does live up to its philosophy, which is ‘Natural Creativity.’ Famous wines from Bauer Winery’s specialty includes both red and white wines – Fetească Regală, Merlot, Cramposie Selectionata, Cabernet, Petit Verdot, Negru de Drăgășani, etc.

Bauer Winery
Wine tasting

Bauer Winery was founded in 2012 and is located in Dragasani, Valcea Co., in the heart of Dragasani Vineyard. This newly founded winery was designed in order to make possible using a small amount of grapes to make wine. Extremely rare grape varieties are used, which are gathered from old parcels of land and are well taken care of. The Philosophy of the winery, “Natural Creativity” is the embodiment of our trust in diversity, not in the concept of “the best wine”.

Wine & Food Pairing Basics

Pairing food with a complementary wine makes it taste even more delicious. But is there more to it than matching white wines with fish and red wines with steak? Of course!
Here are a few basic tips for matching meal courses with the perfect wine:

– Pair intense wines with heavy dishes, such as beef and lamb
– Pair lighter wines with light dishes, such as salad or chicken
– Desserts pair well with sweet wines or dessert wines
– Consider whether flavours are bitter, acidic, sweet, salty or spicy
– Focus on sauces and cooking methods, not just the main ingredient

You can either ‘complement’ or ‘contrast’ when pairing food and wine. For example, choose an earthy red wine to complement a rich mushroom dish, or contrast an acidic white wine with a creamy fish sauce. Neither the food nor the wine should overwhelm each other.

    Romanian Currency – A Brief Cost Guide

    The only currency used is the Romanian leu. Despite being a European country, euros are not accepted anywhere in Romania.

    • Set aside approximately 10 – 30 RON per day for attractions.
    • On average 50 – 60 RON for a dorm bed, or 120 RON for a room in a modest hotel.
    • Between 40 – 80 RON a day for food, depending on your appetite.

    If you’re into luxury accommodation and expensive meals, these costs will be higher!

    Tipping in Romania

    Tipping is expected as Romanian waiters are paid a very low wage, so be sure to also factor this in when drawing up your budget.
