AVINCIS wines were officially launched six years ago and since then they have stood as a unique symbol for the rebirth of Romanian wines, merging modernity with tradition. However, their story began in 1927, when Maria and Iancu Râmniceanu – appointed as officer of the Romanian army by Ionel Brătianu – became the proud owners of an authentic neoromanian manor, surrounded by the vineyards of Drăgășani. In 2007, their great grandchild, Cristiana, along with her husband, Valeriu Stoica, decided to return to her family’s lands and carry on with the heritage of redefining the fascinating wine history.
AVINCIS started the year afresh by adding 14 new international awards to their collection with Fetească Regală & Pinot Gris 2015, AVINCIS White 2015 (Domnul de Rouă în Alb), Merlot 2013, Pinot Noir 2013 and the VILA DOBRUȘA palette being among the most acclaimed wine assortments out of their range.
AVINCIS Fetească Regală & Pinot Gris 2015 received a silver medal at one of the most prestigious international competitions – the International Wine Challenge held in London – being the only Romanian wine appraised as such. AVINCIS White 2015 (Domnul de Rouă în Alb) was also rewarded a bronze medal.
At the international Decanter World Wine Awards competition, the biggest one in the wine industry for having gathered thousands of participants in the past 13 years, AVINCIS Fetească Regală & Pinot Gris 2015 together with AVINCIS Negru de Drăgășani 2013 were awarded silver medals, whereas AVINCIS Cuvée Petit – Sauvignon Blanc 2015 and Merlot 2013 – received bronze medals.
“AVINCIS stands for high quality and is a proof of our well-done work, it bears the mark of the passion and perseverance we endow our actions with, now and always. The awards we have proudly won, truly certify and honor the AVINCIS team. Considering this, we aim to maintain our high level of responsibility, by leading forward the AVINCIS tradition and values.” declared Andreea Micu, AVINCIS owner.
At this year’s edition of the Balkans International Wine Competition, AVINCIS VILA DOBRUȘA – Fetească Regală & Pinot Gris & Tămâioasă 2015 won the Best Indigenous White variety Trophy. Moreover, AVINCIS Cuvée Andrei – Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 was rewarded a gold medal for being prepared from very old Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards mixed with younger ones.
Two silver medals were granted to AVINCIS VILA DOBRUȘA – Sauvignon Blanc 2015 and AVINCIS Domnul de Rouă în Alb 2015, followed by three bronze medals alloted to AVINCIS Domnul de Rouă în Roșu 2015, AVINCIS Merlot 2013 and AVINCIS Pinot Noir 2013.
Apart from the large variety of international awards, AVINCIS also received a Diploma of Excellence, at the second edition of RO-Wine – wine festival which took place in Bucharest on the 20th and 21st of May, collecting over 350 types of wine, appertaining to inland and international producers.
