„An authentic wine speaks about science, art, culture, tradition and modernity, at the same time. Just like the history and soul of the metropolis all over the world, the Byzantium range bears in its DNA the tradition, represented by the famous wine region Dealu Mare and the name inspired by the heritage of the glorious Byzantine Empire, as well as the cosmopolitan influences imprinted by the modern and sophisticated portfolio of „The Iconic Estate” wines, awarded at prestigious international competitions. The new communication direction approaches the consumers in a natural manner: the socializing moments in the urban environment are more pleasant in the company of a premium wine”, says Ionelia Crăciun, Romania Marketing Coordinator “The Iconic Estate”.
