Rhein Wine Cellar, Azuga - Halewood Winery


Rhein Wine Cellar, Azuga


Located in Azuga, an attractive small town between Sinaia and Brasov, on the Prahova Valley, in the middle of the majestic Carpathian Mts, the Rhein Wine Cellar (previously Rhein & Cie Azuga 1892) was recognized between the two World Wars as "Romanian Royal House Official Purveyor". The cellars were built between 1888 and 1892 by a German investor, Rhein, who came along with other investors into the area at the time when 14 nations were taking part in building the Peles Castle, commissioned by King Carol I of Romania (Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen).

Currently the Rhein Wine Cellar belong to the Halewood Winery and it is the oldest Romanian wine cellar which uses the traditional Champenoise method of producing sparkling wines (wine fermented while kept in glass bottles). The Halewood wine varieties can be tasted in the cellars, and the tourists can find out how Romania's most famous sparkling wine is produced, bottled, corked and labeled (old labels are on display in an exhibition). Since April 2006 the Rhein Wein Cellar has been appointed "Supplier of His Majesty King Michael I of Romania".
