Budureasca Wineries The Nobile Wines

Written about in prehistoric books of Ancient Greek poets or authors like Homer, Budureasca Winery is situated in the Southern Subcarpathians, in a portion of the Dealu Mare wine region of Muntenia. The centuries-old vineyard ranges out wide into 275 hectares of the estate, where around 250 hectares of it were replanted but the remaining 25 hectares of old climbers were kept untouched.

Located at a primeval place, the wine culture of Budureasca Winery can be traced back to 2000 BC, during the Dacian times, when many great works of literature had mentioned the Budureasca Vineyards producing some of the great bottles of wine, far more superior than others manufactured locally. 

One of these authors included the renowned poet of the great Iliad and the Odyssey, who had penned down that the Greek warriors would often visit Dacia in search of fine wine. It is known that Burebista, the Dacian King once wanted to get rid of all the grapevines to keep the foreign invaders from taking an interest in his territory. History suggests he had also done so to reduce the amount of wine intake by the Dacians. 

The winery itself boasts of great history as it has the great King Decebal as its logo, therefore keeping the ancient touch as an essential part of the branding. Budureasca Winery is undoubtedly one of the largest wine producers in the Dealu Mare region, which is renowned for having the best conditions required for grape cultivation. 

The winery also covers the ‘Wine Parallel’ region, meaning that Budureasca Winery, identical to the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions from France has matching geographical coordinates. With the southern standing, the vineyards of Budureasca Winery stand on valleys and hills with two rivers of each side, making the soil more fertile for cultivation. The sun always shines way over 2000 hours and the territory consists of fertile elements like limestone and chernozem, characteristics that are hard to find elsewhere. 

While these climatic circumstances are essentially great for nurturing black grapes, however, you will also find numerous varieties of white grapes even with the prolonged periods of daylight. The wine cellar of the Budureasca Winery was established only a couple of years back in the year 2013, with some of the most advanced technological features in the architecture. 

If you have always wanted to treat your eyes with the existence of an underground wine cellar, Budureasca Winery should be the place to go! It has enormous rooms filled up with oak barrels for aging the wine bottles. Top-notch bottles of reds include Merlot, Pinot Noir, the traditional Romanian locally produced wine, Fetească Neagră, Sauvignon, Cabernet, Shiraz, and many more. If you’re opting for the whites, Budureasca Winery’s Fetească Regală, Muscat Ottonel, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Tamaioasa Romaneasca, Fetească Alba, and Riesling are a must-have!

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.
