At the end of 2019, 12 well-known and experienced wineries from the Dealu Mare wine region came together around an idea: to deliberately create a higher standard of quality for their production, in order to highlight what is specific to this area.
The self-assumed regulation provides for the existence of three categories that can bear the mark of recognition for top wines. All this must:
- have at least 25% of the indigenous Fetească Neagra variety;
- use grapes from plots which were declared and selected in advance, where the age of the plantation is at least seven years;
- come from plots where the production of grapes per hectare has been voluntarily reduced compared to the legal provisions in force;
- be subject to a supervisory and control committee set up by the initiators for this purpose.
