The wine trail through Muntenia and Oltenia is an excellent opportunity to spend a weekend in a different way if you come from Bucharest, Sibiu, Pitești or Craiova and don't know what to do somewhere relatively close to your city.

The route goes from the plains to the high subcarpathian hills to reach a less explored tourist area in Romania, but particularly beautiful - the Oltenia Subcarpathians, at the foot of the Căpățânii Mountains.

The range of activities is centred around wine tastings from the Sâmburești or Drăgășani vineyards. The additional activities that can be included in such a route are suitable for both adults and children, and include an amusement park, visits to an ethnographic museum with a specific viticultural theme or the admiration of the Oltenești cule near Horezu.

To add to the atmosphere, we also have a recommendation for accommodation in an olteneasca cottage.

Author’s recommendation

  • The route can be done at any time of the year, as the wineries are open.
  • A possible stop could also be the Balcescu Mansion (Valea Balcească), currently under renovation.
