Such visionaries were Nicolae and Aristide Basilescu.
Nicolae Basilescu, born in Urlaţi in 1860, distinguished himself from the very beginning through his extraordinary intelligence and ambition which helped him overcome his social limits. He became well-known as an illustrious personality of the XIXth century Romanian society, being dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Bucharest, holding the leading position for the longest period in the history of this institution, and founder of the Bucureştii Noi district.
Nicolae Basilescu’s noble mission has been inherited by his son, Aristide Basilescu, who held a leading position of the Political Economy Department of University of Bucharest.
As any grand creation is born of a divine awareness, Basilescu wines have weaved their origins from a beautiful love story between young Aristide Basilescu and the young lady Aglae Saint Georges de Posingen, descendant of a family that is documentary established since 400 A.D.. Their love has been a blessing for the Urlaţi’s vinicultural activity as well. During this period they associated with Capşa restaurant and Maison de Champagne St. Marceaux&Co
Integrity, love, revolutionary vision, devotion, are but a few of the underlying elements passed on to Basilescu wines.
