Wine Tasting & The Royal Peles Castle Full-Day Tour from Bucharest

 

 

    How about spending a full-day in a royal style, exploring one of Romania's wine regions, local grape varieties, tasting sparkling wines and a delicious lunch at the Azuga Rhein Cellars while also visiting one of the country's most famous and impressive castles, Peles Royal Castle in Sinaia?

    Holding the sixth place in Europe for wine production, Romania could also be called "a vine homeland" in Europe alongside France, Italy, Spain or Germany, being one of the world's largest wine producers. 

In the morning, around 08:30am, the guide will pick you up from the hotel you are accommodated, and you will leave Bucharest capital heading to Sinaia mountain resort.

There, we will visit one of the most famous and impressive castles in Romania and one of the most beautiful in Europe - Peles Royal Castle. Built by the first king of Romania – Carol I, between 1873 and 1914, the construction features an elegant Neo-Renaissance style combined with Gothic Revival and striking Baroque, Saxon and Swiss alpine influences.

We will also visit Sinaia Monastery - one of the oldest monasteries in Romania, located only few minutes away from Peles Castle. 

We will continue our way on the Prahova Valley where the Rhein-Azuga Cellars are located, nestled in the majestic Bucegi mountains. Here we will enjoy a traditional 3-course lunch, winetasting and visit of the oldest Romanian wine cellar which uses the traditional Champenoise method of producing sparkling wines, and we will learn how Romania's most famous sparkling wine is produced, bottled, corked and labeled. Since April 2006, the Rhein Wein Cellar has been appointed "Supplier of His Majesty King Michael I of Romania". Here, you will also be able to buy genuine Romanian wines and sparkling wines from the gift shop, if you wish.

In the evening, we return back to Bucharest, where the guide will drop you off at your hotel. End of the tour.
