Press Reviews

Bristol-born Philip Cox is one of the men behind Recas Estate, launched in 1998 and now one of Romania’s biggest wine producers and exporters. This 100 per cent chardonnay orange wine made its debut last year and is produced by macerating half of the de-stemmed crushed grapes in juice for three weeks, before blending it with grapes that have undergone carbonic maceration with no added yeast. This gives the wine its specific orange hue (and name) and distinctive taste. One for the more adventurous wine drinker.
John Clarke, The Independent, 15th June 2018

The Cramele Recaş winery was one of the first to be privatised; canny Bristolian Philip Cox took ownership 22 years ago, alongside a local partner, and now makes 20m litres a year. Cox thinks Brexit is bonkers for Britain, but concedes it’s good for his business: Romania is in the EU, but has not adopted the euro, and this, along with cheap labour costs and the scale of his operation, means his wines have a razor-sharp competitive edge over producers in the Eurozone. And unlike many of them, his 2017 harvest was the biggest ever (this year, he sold both grapes and juice to producers in Italy and Spain whose own crops had failed them).

…Ever-innovative, Cramele Recaş even makes an on-trend orange wine for Tanners called Sole.
