Wine, vineyards, grapes, vintage … in Romania (Europe).

With a production of more than 600.000 tonnes/year, Romania is one of the largest producer(9th place).

Romania is also an ‘old’ producer of wine, introduced by the Greeks, some 4.000 years ago, who arrived from the Black Sea in Dacia (present day Romania).

Beside the classic grapes, like Pinot and Chardonnay, they still have their local grapes, like Feteasca and Babeasca.

The principal wine producing regions are Moldavia, Transylvania and the Black Sea region, with wellknown locations as Cotnari, Dealu Mare, Murfatlar and Reca.
