Who we are
I’s a beautiful story, a conversation between friends that became a successful reality. Owned by Michel Roy and Șerban Dâmboviceanu, the business came into being in 2005, when, out of the 470 hectares of vineyards owned by the IAS Corcova, only 18 hectares remained, and the cellars, built by Prince Anton Bibescu in the early 20th century, were in ruins.
We believe that wine is more than what you drink and enjoy. The wine has an undeniable sense of place, and the French have even a word for it: it’s called terroir.
Corcova wine bears the original imprint of the place and speaks of history, distinction, passion. The personality of the terroir is set by the happy combination of the climatic elements with the geological specificity, by the right choice of the grape varieties and, especially, by the attention for the winemaking process.
At Corcova, on the estate of Bibescu family, the wine was the decanter around whom exchanges of ideas, intense experiences, memorable writings were born and an impressive number of personalities coagulated. It is a legacy we take care of.
