Located in the South-West of the country, in Mehedinti County, Corcova is considered a new vineyard for the today consumers, although it continues the tradition of producing quality wine, a practice that begun in this area hundreds of years ago. 


Corcova Roy & Damboviceanu wines are special and have that "gout du terroir", because all the necessary elements meet in the same place: a temperate-continental climate with Mediterranean influence - warm and dry summers, gentle winters, with increased rain fall; soils with a diverse lithological structure and rich in minerals, specific to the Motru Piedmont, that is part of the largest piedmont area in the country, the Getic Piedmont; noble vine with the proper strains, supplied by Pepiniers Hebinger and the careful and responsible work of the Roy&Damboviceanu Corcova team. 

Starting with 2005, 55 hectares of land have been replanted with vines from Pepiniers Hebinger in France and strains dating back from the time of Bibescu's estate - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Muscat Ottonel, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc - as well as Feteasca Neagra. Furthermore, the wine cellars built by Prince Antoine Bibescu were completely refurbished throughout 2008-2009, observing the initial architecture and equipped with wine production machines manufactured by the most prestigious specialized companies in France and Italy.
