Murfatlar Romania has opened a new wine production unit dedicated to premium varieties. The new winery, located inside the company’s existing production facility near Constanta, required a EUR 550,000 investment.
As part of its strategy to grow its premium segment wines, Murfatlar has hired Razvan Macici (pictured) as consulting enologist. Macici is famous for being the cellar master of the Nederburg winery in South Africa, a position he has held since 2001. Over the years he has won a large number of industry awards for wines across the range.
In 2010 Macici was behind the official wine of the FIFA World Cup, developing a special edition collector’s trio of South African wines.
