The Winobranie is a grape-growing fairytale in Transylvania, a region of Romania. In fact it is known as the “Queen of Vineyards” because wineries there are famous all over Europe for the quality of their grapes. The Winobranie has been running since Transylvania’s early days. Nowadays Winobranie is one of the biggest wine producers in Transylvania and a popular tourist destination. Even though many people visit Winobranie, not many know much about it or where it is.
The Winobranie fairytale tradition dates back to ancient times. People visiting Transylvania would be taken on a tour of the vineyard by a Winobrani, the original people of this region. After touring the vineyard, participants would be taken to a special tasting room where they would be served a glass of wine. The wine served there was called Polenjukas in polish, meaning “white wine”. Later the name was changed to Winobranie and eventually to WinoBranie, which later became the present day Winobranie Vineyard.
The Winobranie Vineyard in Transylvania is run by two families: Kornati and Bogorzany. The Winobranie Winery is owned by the Bogorzany family. The original winery is located in the village of Dobrinishte near the village of Branice. Today the winery is administrated by the brothers Pawel and Mateus Bogorzany. The winery produces an annual quota of around 800 liters of wine from the original vineyard which can be bought for about one hundred dollars each.
In 2021 the winery was rated as one of the top five wineries in all of central and southern Europe. It is known for having an award winning crop of excellent white and red wines, with particular emphasis on its Zielona ra varietal which is renowned throughout the world for its taste and color. A variety of grape varieties are grown in this vineyard including the famous zielona ra.
The winobranie has a reputation of supplying polish wine to customers throughout the world. The winery itself was built during the Middle Ages and hundreds of years ago was a bustling village filled with merchants and other citizens. Polish soldiers stationed in Germany were amazed at how the people in this small town spoke English. In fact, it is said that the language started fading away from Polish to German after the First World War. The local Polish merchant’s daughter took it upon herself to revive the language and the village began to flourish again.
Wina Bronica is also known for their other wines including Zielona Rady, Wina Bronica and Wina Rychter. All three winobranie locations are situated in and around Krakow. For example, Wina Rychter is twenty miles from Krakow and the other winobranie are located in a distance of thirty-two to forty-five miles from Krakow. In addition to wines, the winobranie also serve a wide variety of food. They feature fine selections of cheese and pastas as well as a wide variety of delicious foods.
All the wineries are supported by the local Polish government, which has a great deal of stake in seeing that the wineries prosper. This includes funds for the upkeep of the vineyards as well as support of the artists who work in the villages surrounding the wineries. A lot of the grapes that are used to make the wines at the wineries are grown on private farms. The owners of these farms get their grapes free of charge, instead of being paid by the winery. The workers who grow the grapes on the farms then help to harvest the grapes and deliver them to the various wineries for their use.
One of the major things happening at the wineries is the yearly wine festival. Every year, people from all over polish come to celebrate this occasion and spend time with some of the winemakers in Krakow. Some of the very popular wine festivals include Akropolisuza, Summer Festival and Wine Walk. Many tourists visit this area each year during their holidays. It is important to keep in mind that even though the wineries are small, the people who work there make a strong commitment to ensuring that they continue to produce quality wine each year.
