The winery was founded in 1994, being bought by the company Reh - Kedermann (a German winery dating from 1920) that replanted the 250 hectares of vineyards. Cultivated grapes varieties are: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Rhein Riesling, Tamaioasa Romaneasca, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Feteasca Neagra, Shiraz, Dornfelder, Zinfandel.
