The Asconi Winery was founded in 1994 and has since then remained a family business. Their aim has been to produce the best possible wine, using the best available technology. This they do while maintaining the traditions passed down from generations.
Asconi winery has over the course of 10 years planted their grapes on over 500 hectares of land. All the vineyards are located in the vicinity of the Geamana Village, in Anenii Noi County, located just 10 kilometres from the winery.
Over the years, they have planted different varietals, but the current focus is on the local varietals. The foundation of Asconi wines is built on French varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat. Other varietals include Riesling, Malbec, Pinot Noir and the two local varietals of Feteasca Alba and Feteasca Neagra.
Asconi makes a wide variety of wines ranging from dry reds, whites and roses to dessert Ice Wines and fortified wines. The red wines are full-bodied and aged in 225-litre oak barrels or on oak staves. Often used are American, Hungarian and to a lesser extent French Oak. The white wines are usually in the fresh and aromatic style with the exception of some Chardonnays and Rieslings which are fermented or aged in oak barrels as well.
