Constantin George Zamfirescu, founder of Vidalco International, LLC, began with the vision to offer for the first time wines from the more prestigious vineyards of Romania.
Having spent his
summers at his
Grandparent's vineyard in Romania, Mr. Zamfirescu
felt compelled to share his
passion and enjoyment of wines that enriched his
life for years.
Romania is an OLD WORLD WINE
Dealu Mare, Vanju Mare and Samburesti are some of the finest wine regions in the world, but are still "UNKNOWN" compared to other extraordinary wine growing regions like Bordeaux, Tuscany, Rioja, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Napa, Colchagua or Barossa.
Romania has been producing wines for over 6,000 years.
Due to the obstruction of the communist regime that ruled the country in the last few decades, from 1940 up until 1989 the world was hindered from the enjoyment of these exceptional wines.
In 1999, Mr. Zamfirescu founded Vidalco International, LLC in Dunbar, West Virginia.
entrepreneurial spirit combined with the expertise of Vinarte, SRL
and later Halewood Cellars, SA
dream to reality in the fall of 2001 by introducing, educating and familiarizing the consumers with the finest Romanian wines.
