"We have always tried to be the ones that adapt themselves to nature, both by working in as less invasive manner as possible and by limiting phyto-sanitary interventions. This is not always easy to achieve, but I did not hesitate in putting my entire financial and human efforts in order to succeed."
While Serban Damboviceanu followed Anton Bibescu's trail when he rediscovered and brought Corcova back to life, Laurent Pfeffer follows Aristoteles Sauget's trail - the oenologist invited by Prince Anton Bibescu to see to the vineyard in Corcova - when, at only 27, he chose to make wine in Romania.
Laurent graduated the Department of Agronomy in Bordeaux and then completed his studies in oenology. He made wine in the Bordeaux region for 4 years before heading to Romania.
His working philosophy is to find the ideal balance between classical wine making principles for each strain and the "terroir" specificity. The search of this balance starts from working the land and the vineyard.
