When you think of Romania – wine is probably the last thing on your list (behind gypsies, vampires and orphans). Well – the folks in the country know a thing or two about wine production. In fact, they have been producing vino in one form or another since 2,000 B.C. – that’s a pretty good track record, if you ask us. A group of vineyards, responsible for nearly 15,000 acres of vines, has banded together and will try to drum up more interest in Romania labels over the next few years. The region is known for standard varietals – think Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. There are also a few more interesting choices coming out of the vineyards - Feteasca Neagra is a red wine known for its intense ruby color and strong personality. Strong personality? Sounds like most of the Romanians we know. . .
