“A single glass of wine can reveal more than a story. My winemaking history begins with the love of nature. When you nourish love, passion, and respect for the vineyard, you can bring out the very best from the vines which will be then reflected in the glass.
This love carried me to the New World, where winemaking was undertaken with innovation and the latest scientific research. During the almost 30 years that have passed since I finished wine school, I have focused my education on chemistry and microbiology with a particular emphasis on the taste and smell ––the vital elements for the creation of excellent wines. Over the years, my passion for wine has grown, along with my recurrent dream that I would cultivate my own vineyard one day. That day has arrived, and my dream has become a reality.
At Domeniile Săhăteni, I rely on people who have dedicated their lives to working in the vineyards. Here we make wine for those like us, who skillfully do their job with rigor and passion, people who know their goals. We don’t fabricate a perfect, sweet story without foundation or claim to have the secret knowledge of wine. Wonderful wine depends on the grace of nature but develops thanks to the skill and passion of the viticulturists and winemakers. Wine is what we offer you at our best, every year, from our cellar.
This is my belief, and it can be found in every bottle of wine I make.”- Aurelia Vișinescu, Domeniile Săhăteni
Made by the most famous woman winemaker in Romania, this is the Romanian soul-ANIMA Fetească Neagră. Fetească Neagră is one of the most loved grape varieties from Romania, a true ambassador in the wine world. ANIMA’s three vintages are the fruits of the vineyard’s most gifted years 2015, 2016 & 2017. They met the artistry of oenologist Aurelia Vișinescu, who crafted them in Romanian oak to gain vanilla aromas and fine tannins. Elegant, full ruby colored body to indulge in the smoky dried plums, figs, wild fruits, and dark chocolate.
ANIMA is an exclusive, limited-edition wine. It reflects the soul and passion transformed into wine. It represents the involvement of mind, body, and soul in the discovery and celebration pf a complex palate full of surprise. Wine made by a woman winemaker, imported, and distributed by a woman-owned company.
