Oltenia Hills, or in Romanian, Dealurile Olteniei is the what’s most likely to be seen on the label.

The most important wine making zone within the region is undoubtedly the Dealu Mare. It is perfect for the production of red wine, but there are also an increasing amount of very high quality white wines being made here.
