Customize a Winery Tour of Romania

Romanian wine culture has existed for almost 6000 years and dates back to history's earliest inhabitants. It is argued to be one of the oldest in all of Europe. Legend says that the Tharacian god of wine was born just north of the Danube Delta. When the Romans occupied this area it was often referred to as Happy Dacia (Dacia Felix) because of the richness that the land provided for growing wine. Vineyards throughout Romania have survived the years and still produce these high quality wines today.

Due to its local soil and climate Romania attracted countries such as France, Germany, and Italy to invest in vineyards since the 19C.  Because of this you will find a variety of different vines, such as Pinot noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Romania has 4 major wine producing regions that you can see in the map above. Discover the wines of the gods and find out why vines in this region have been sought after for its richness for years!
