The Iconic Estate will exhibit wines from the Hyperion, Mythological Collection, Rhein Extra, Colina Piatra Albă, Byzantium, Prahova Valley and La Umbra ranges at Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris 2022.
“It is an honour and a joy to participate in Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris 2022 as part of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles stand. The invitation launched by the organizers of the competition is a sign of confidence and reconfirmation of the high quality of the wines from The Iconic Estate portfolio, awarded at several editions of the competition. The Iconic Estate is also the first wine producer in Romania to win the Grand Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2002, with the wine Prahova Valley Special Reserve Pinot Noir 1999. We appreciate the opportunity to exhibit our products in one of the most visible and visited the stands of the exhibition, an opportunity that will allow us to connect more easily with all those who want to discover these wines created with passion and dedication by oenologist Lorena Deaconu Stoian, in the Dealu Mare region” said Corneliu Vîlsan, Chief Marketing Officer, Alexandrion Group.
