Attested since the XVI century

Viticulture has probably existed here since the Dacians, since it was an area inhabited and not far from the capital Sarmizegetusa. The old papers attest that the vineyard was first documented since the XVI century. By an act of July 1, 1594, Mihai Viteazu offers Necula two vineyards in Corcova, and by another, from July 8, 1596, he gives Radu, the second bishop, sheeps and vines in Jirov, Cernaia, Cotoroaia and Valea Bună.


Estate of Bibești family

Corcova, as estate of Bibești family, experienced its glory times by the end of the 19th century and in the first half of the 19th century and 20th century. Prince Anton Bibescu hired a young French agronomist to take care of the vineyard, Aristoteles Sauget. He, followed by his sons, made Corcova a heaven and above all, he invented Corcovin and Corcovel, amazing coups based on cabernet.


50 hectares of land

In the summer of 2005, the company bought 12 hectares of vineyard planted by IAS Corcova and about 50 hectares of land planted with degraded vines in the village of Jirov. Both sites had been planted with vines since the estate of the Bibescu family and their suitability for the vines culture was confirmed.


Completely renovated and modernized.

The cellars have been completely renovated and modernized. With the support of the EAFRD (European Fund for Agriculture and Rural Development), the wineries have been equipped with modern machinery and equipment that facilitate processing, according to European standards.


Wisdom doesn't automatically come with old age. Nothing does - except wrinkles. It's true, some wines improve with age. But only if the grapes were good in the first place. ABIGAIL VAN BUREN
