For those who don’t know yet, Romania is a renowned European producer of world-class quality wines. Today, OIV, the International Organisation of Vine and Wine, place Romania among the top 6 wine countries in the EU, in as far as the area under vine, grape and wine production are concerned.

On this occasion, at ProWein 2022, the visitors will have the chance to meet the winemakers and producers of companies located in the best wine regions of tye country.

Noteworthy is the fact that 7 of 12 wineries are coming from the famous Dealu Mare wine region, "the land of red wines" how it is called (CH. Pietrosaratii, Crama Ceptura, Domeniile Alexandrion Rhein 1892, Domeniile Blaga, Domeniile Sahateni, La Vie and Vitis Metamorfosis), part of the larger Dealurile Munteniei wine region, which is known for its typical warm, dry microclimate and fairly long autumns that favour a slow and thorough ripening of the grapes. A wine region in which the winemakers also show a consistent concern for vine sustainability and organic wines production.

Add to this, the other 5 wineries coming from such fabulous wine regions as Oltenia (Domeniul Coroanei Segarcea and Viti-Pomicola Samburesti), Moldova (Vinicola Averesti 2020), Transylvania (Jidvei) and the Danube Terraces (Domeniile Dropia) and you will realise that the wines on show and offer are covering almost the entire country.
