It happened almost a week ago when Tudy called me:


– Morodan, you haven`t forgot have you?


– About what? What? What? Oh my God, I`m dying here. Did we have something to do? With you, too? God, tell me man, what is it? I can`t rememberrr. 4b



– About our long weekend at the Jidvei vineyards and castle. The instameet, Moroadan. The INSTAMEET organized by #instagramology with A.D.A.R (Asociatia Degustatorilor Autorizati Romania) and Jidvei. He said rolling his eyes, thinking I`m a complete idiot.


 – Ohhh man, I`ve declined a dozen of vineyard visiting invitations this Autumn because of busy schedule, why do I have to go to this one? Besides, on Saturday I have to film for the new episode of the RedesignYourSelf reality show. 


– I`re an idiot. Come after you finish filming. You`ll love it. It`s only a 6 hour drive away. #whattttt?! And you promised!

Damn it! Fine…Why did I promise…!?


So last Saturday, after we finished filming at BSC, I got in my car, turned on Waze and started driving. After almost 7 hours, dressed like in the picture below, I was opening a huge door to enter the Jidvei castle`s backyard.

What followed was meant to remain in my mind like the days when the world stopped for a few moments because:



  •  the people I`ve met – my other instameet buddies and the Jidvei castle staff  – not only they left me with a powerful impression with their good vibes and interesting characters but they proved me that common sense is not dead. And they filled me with so much positive vibes that I can`t wait to see them again.  (Hi Georgescu, Comoara, Mihut, Mihuta, Marian and everyone)9b 


  • I visited the biggest vineyard in Romania, the whole Jidvei domain and my temporary home was in a castle. They`ve got me with this one. #instantobsession



  • Although I knew that Jidvei is the biggest wine producer in Romania, I never knew that the owners did a lot of improvements around the Alba area. Starting with taking care that their over 900 employees get free bread everyday besides their income. And among many others they updated their community by renovating kindergartens, high schools and roads. These kind of actions deserve our admiration and respect. And a wine toast 5b

Dear everyone I`ve met during my stay at Jidvei,


It has been an honor and real pleasure. You`ve left a significant mark into my mind. I`ll remember these days for a long, long time. 


To my At Your Service butler Tudy, thank you for dragging me, for threatening me with your resignation, all in all, for sticking and pushing me to come to this place. It`s been memorable. 6b

    you met some amazing photographers there, I can see. great job, congrats everyone

  4. Manuela says:

    buna, ma bucur sa vad si sa aud ca este promovat Jidvei-ul (parintii mei inca locuiesc acolo). Castelul pe care l-ai vizitat, si care e o minune e in Cetatea de Balta. Exista inca un astfel de castel, la Sanmiclaus , din pacate lasat in paragina , in care am locuit eu insami pana la 14 ani.

    • Ana Morodan says:

      Manuela, ce frumos 🙂 You lived in a castle <3 Este cam trist ca astfel de locuri raman in paragina. Sper caa la un moment dat sa faca cineva ceva. Sau chiar eu. Am eu un plan. 🙂
