Here at Chateau Vincarta, we like to get adventurous. We’re champions of premium Romanian wine. Our roving correspondent, Ioana Negulescu, wrote about Georgian wine after her visit there in 2018. And we’ll die in a ditch for Riesling. But what about Albanian wine? Never tried it? Neither had we. Until we tasted two Uka Winery wines.
Matthew and Mirela make a flying visit to Burgundy, taking in a historic chateau winery and a lovely hotel in the heart of Côte de Beaune.
Vincarta’s Mirela Mart interviews Aurelia Vișinescu, pioneer and doyenne of premium Romanian wine.
Wine is liquid hospitality, and our first travel memoir is punctuated by visits to famous wine regions and glasses of delight. Welcome to Rheingau, Germany.
Mirela visits Aurelia Vișinescu, a Romanian wine pioneer and Vincarta idol. We find out what make her premium wines so special.
After visiting Manuel Marinacci, we reached the final stop in our day of Barolo wineries with David Berry Green. The trip ended on a high note with a visit to Cascina Fontana to meet Mario Fontana, a traditional Barolo producer.
We visit Manuel Marinacci, a winemaker in Barbaresco, Piedmont and taste a flight of his wonderful Barbarescos.
Wine buffs know Piedmont for its luscious reds (especially Barolo) but that’s not the whole story. We visited Cornarea in May 2016 with David Berry Green to find out more.
We have the happiest memories of Monte dei Ragni. Of all the winemakers we visited in 2016 and all the wonderful wine nerds we met, this was our favourite. It’s the story we tell when we want to explain why we are so passionate about wine.
