Carastelec Winery is the first investment in Romania aimed at producing mostly sparkling and semi-sparkling wines. It is located in Crisana Region, which is one of the oldest wine producing regions in Transylvania, close to Magura Simleului Mountain which is a crystalline island in North West Transylvania. The region of Carastelec, marked by this Mountain, has a particular soil from which grapes can extract minerals required to make elegant and sophisticated wines full of fineness, fresh and fruity, typical of the varieties cultivated here. And also, this crystalline terroir gives them special personality and typicality.
The winery was founded in 2011, when the 22 ha vineyard was planted. This south-facing natural amphitheatre near the village, on the top of a slope, is a real treasure hill with a specific microclimate which has been chosen by Tibor Gal, one of Hungary leading oenologists, years ago.
