"From ancient times wine from Recas has stimulated and then satisfied the thirst of both mind and body.

The first records of viticulture in the Banat region date back from the period of the Roman invasion of Dacia, in their century AD. Earlier legends tell of the god of wine Bacchus spending his childhood here. More recent history shows that the vineyard of Recas were already renowned by 1447 when the lord of Severin Mihail de Ciorna purchased the vineyards in Recas from Ioan and Ecaterina Magyar, for 32 Hungarian gold florins.

From 1722 until 1786, Recas attracted waves of immigration from Schwaben region of Bavaria, and the partnership of Romanians and the Schwaben people completed the foundations for a wine legend-generous sunshine, hard working and skilled people and the exceptional qualities of the rich land. From that day until present day, the blessing of the legendary gods of wine has continued to protect the destiny of the vineyards in Recas.

The people here have not been satisfied to live on the glory of the past and have invested heavily in the last few years to transform tradition into outstanding wines, through state of the art technology.

The result: excellent wines for connoisseurs, wines that truly reflect the spirit of Recas and fully complete those who choose them."

"Din cele mai vechi timpuri vinul de aici a starnit, si apoi a domolit, setea trupului si a spiritului.

Primele informatii generale despre cultura vitei de vie in zona Banatului apartine perioadei ocupatiei romane asupra provinciei Dacia, secolul 3 dupa Hristos. Legende mai vechi insa spun ca pe aceste meleaguri s-a nascut si a copilarit Bachus, zeul vinului la Daci adoptat apoi de Greci ca Bachus-Dyonisos, si de Romani ca Bachus.

Cel mai vechi document scris despre viile Recasului este datat din 11 Noiembrie 1447, fiind un act prin care Mihail de Ciorna, Banul Severinului, cumpara viile de la Ioan si Ecaterina Magyar pentru 32 florini unguresti de aur.

Incepand din 1772 si pana in 1786 au emigrat in regiune, de buna voie sau datorita saraciei, un numar impresionant de Svabi, locuitori din Bavaria, din zona Ulm, zona in care se vorbea dialectul Schwaben.

Convietuirea dintre romani si germani a completat toate premisele legendei: pamant roditor, soare generos, oameni harnici si priceputi.

Trecand de la traditie si istorie catre prezent, se poate spune ca binecuvantarea legendarului zeu continua sa ocroteasca destinul Viilor din Recas. Oamenii de aici nu s-au multumit sa traiasca din amintiri si au adus in Recas tot ceea ce este nou in domeniul vinului si viticulturii.

Rezultatul: un vin excelent, pour les connaisseurs, un vin sincer, pe masura celui care il alege."
