Calusari Pinot Noir
Calusari Pinot Noir is produced by a leading Romanian vineyard Cramele Recas. A medium bodied red with juicy plum and red cherry fruit and a velvety finish.

The winemaking tradition in Romania is a long and noble one. The first records of viticulture in the Banat region date back to the Roman invasion of Dacia in the First Century AD, but legend tells of Bacchaus, the God of Wine, spending his childhood there. More recent history shows that the vineyards used for Umbrele were already renowned by 1447, when the lord of Severin Mihall de Ciorna purchased the vineyards for 32 Hungarian gold florins.

For years the Chileans have propagated the myth that they alone are capable of producing quality, modern single vineyard wines at very affordable prices but the wines from Umbrele demonstrate how wrong they are!

Hailing from the shadow of the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, there has been massive investment in the winery and in new vineyards with the replanting of over 600 hectares. This investment has resulted in beautifully fresh and fruity wines.
