Rebirth of a tradition

 

 

 

Since more than 300 years, the family of Prince Stirbey has owned vineyards in the Dragasani wine region. When I discovered it in 1999, I immediately understood why my ancestors chose this place: I fell in love at first sight with the enchanting landscape, the charming people living and working there since generations in their traditions, and with the balance between nature and people.

 

Of love my husband Jakob and I gave rebirth to Prince Stirbey wine estate, but also with the wish to discover the terroir of every single vineyard and the rich potential of the different grape varieties, evolved in this terroir since thousands of years.

 

I invite you for a walk through the vineyards of Prince Stirbey, at the discovery of the place of birth of our wines!
