About the winery
The Cotnari Wine House is located in Cîrjoaia, at Vlădoianu Castle, built in 1901 by the former Governor of the National Bank, boyar Vasile Vladoianu, along with his wife Raliţa Bals, descendant of the boy Balş. The building of the castle used an Italian project and materials brought from Italy. As time went by, the domain was assigned various destinations: during the Second World War it was used by the Russian army as a hospital and between 1945 and 1950 it functioned as an orphanage. After 1950, the CAP acquired it being then taken over by IAS Cotnari. In 2000 he was returned to the heirs of law from which he was subsequently acquired. At present, over Vlădoianu Castle has left its mark the passage of time, but in the future it is aimed at realizing a unique project of restoration of the domain, which will give it the brilliance of the time, specific belle époque.
