There are many ways to tell when the grapes are ripe and ready to pick. One of them is more bird activity in the vineyard.

If you are reaching us by train in a few weeks to help us pick grapes and make wine, you will get of at the Berheci train station. Good news, looks like we will still have great weather, sunny and still pretty hot.

We are excited to announce that we will set up a few ‘trânta’ seminars during the upcoming winemaking season. Trânta is an ancient wrestling style practiced in Romania and the Republic of Moldova, similar to Greek-Roman wrestling, but with its own particular set of rules and moves. A true retreat will not only connect you with the land and nature, but also your own body and spirit.

There’s a natural marriage between wine and nuts that seems to bring out the best in each other. It’s almost as if they were predestined for pairing. We follow this duet up close, as we explore the local specific of Romanian Moldova.

This is Podarcis muralis or the European wall lizard, one of the two species of lizards that can be found at Mamaia Rural Retreat. The wall lizard is a species of lizard with a large distribution in Europe and well-established introduced populations in North America. It can grow to about 20 cm in total length and it hunts flies, worms and other insects. #biodynamicwine #naturalwine #organicwalnuts #moldova #romania #climatechange #prepper #offgrid #offgridliving #tecuci #babeascaneagra #biodiversity #winelord #rawwine #organicfarming #ecologicalfarming

We have numerous wild camomille plants around the vineyard. These plants attract loads of bugs and bees, increasing biodiversity and balancing the numerous relationships between plants, insects, birds and animals on the farm.

Last year we experimented with rose wine and diversified our wine offering. In two months we will be at Mamaia Rural Retreat again, for a new winemaking season. This year’s objective is to make sparkling wine, using the ancestral method of simply bottling the wine before fermentation has ended, so that the CO2 can go back into the wine and make it bubbly. If we bottle too early, the bottle will explode. If we bottle too late, the wine will be flat. We will figure this one out based on empirical observations. Any tips? #biodynamicwine #naturalwine #organicwalnuts #moldova #romania #climatechange #prepper #offgrid #offgridliving #tecuci #babeascaneagra #biodiversity #ruralretreat #mamaiaruralretreat #rawwine #winelord #winelover

We encourage biodiversity at Mamaia Rural Retreat as it maintains a healthy balance between plants and animals and it enables climate resilience. This is Podarcis muralis or the European wall lizard, one of the two species of lizards that can be found at Mamaia Rural Retreat.

Mamaia Rural Retreat is located 13 kilometers North of a small but old town called Tecuci (first mentioned in 1435), in S-W Romanian Moldova. Not to our surprise, the old emblem of the town consists of grapes. Very likely, Babeasca Neagra grapes, a defining grape variety for Romanian red wines that originally comes from Nicoresti, a village close to Tecuci. #biodynamicwine #naturalwine #organicwalnuts #moldova #romania #climatechange #prepper #offgrid #offgridliving #tecuci #babeascaneagra

It has been raining a bit in the last few weeks and our grapes have acquired volume and weight. We are about to enter the dry period of the summer, where grapes will gain more sugar. Mid-September is winemaking season. #biodynamicwine #naturalwine #organicwalnuts #moldova #romania #climatechange #prepper #offgrid #offgridliving

Off grid living is a key premise at Mamaia Rural Retreat. The miracle of harvesting light from the sun not only democratices our access to energy, but it is also good for the planet. We know these are just simple pico solar products and we want to go beyond lighting, but it’s a good start nevertheless. #biodynamicwine #naturalwine #organicwalnuts #moldova #romania #climatechange #prepper #offgrid #offgridliving
