The essence of our traditions
Combining the ancient traditions of winemaking with our passion for perfection.
4000 years ago in Thrace, now modern Romania, the Greek god Dionysus, son of Zeus and Semele was born, and with him a new form of agriculture appeared – winemaking.
Four millennia have passed, four millennia of customs and traditions, four millennia of Romanian winemaking, culture and lifestyle.
Senator Wines is a Romanian company proud of this legacy of vine growing and winemaking. Our portfolio includes traditional varieties as well as international varieties of the Terroir.
Established from a passion for wine by two brothers, George and Lucian Neacsu, the company has long been a part of the oldest and richest growing wine region – Vrancea.
Senator Wines developed and extended its vineyards in vine growing areas throughout Romania. We now produce over 20 different types of wine, sectioned into different ranges and designed to suit every palate. Our wines are made from over 20 different grape varieties, hence Senator offers the largest range of Romanian wines.
The company holds over 800 hectares of vineyards in four regions across Romania: Vrancea (Panciu, Odobesti, Cotesti), Braila (Însuratei), Vaslui (Husi) and Caras Severin (Tirol). This offers consumers the best wines from each individual area, thus achieving the highest international standards (as certified by ISO 9001 and HACCP).
Investment in the latest technology ensures all wines are of outstanding quality. From the harvest to the bottle each is prepared with passion. We export to over 20 countries worldwide, the biggest markets being China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore,Vietnam, Russia, Canada, Australia, Mexico, the USA and the European Union.
The source of our Wines
The location, the climate, the landscape, the soil, the grapes and the people are all inherent in our wines.
