Transylvania Wines import excellent quality wines and spirits from Romania.
When talking about Romania most people would think of Dracula, Nicolae Ceausescu the communist dictator, or Nadia Comaneci the gymnast.
Romania has around 4000 years of continuous wine traditions. However, during the communist era all vineyards were forced into producing bulk wine at the expense of quality. Following the fall of communism and the eventual entry into the European Union, the wine industry has changed beyond recognition and is improving every year. With new state of the art technology, wine makers are able to now produce excellent quality wines in the modern methods. Romania is on the same latitude as Europe’s finest wine regions including Bordeaux, Burgundy in France, and Piemonte in Italy.
As well as planting the more popular international varieties, several indigenous vines are also proving popular. Varieties such as Feteasca Regala (The Royal Maiden), Feteasca Alba (The White Maiden) and Feteasca Neagra (The Black Maiden) are also well worth sampling.
Should you wish to have a tasting of Romanian wine in your own home or venue please contact us.
