Romania is a country of striking natural beauty with an often-overlooked tradition of wine production. Most of the Romanian viticulture is conducted on hills and well-drained slopes, as well as in valleys that are well protected from harsh winter winds and late spring frosts. In other words, Romania has a plethora of differing microclimates, contributing to a rich diversity in wines. Despite its relative infancy in export markets, Romania is the sixth largest producer of wine in Europe. Exports are increasingly on the up as large retailers such as Waitrose have reported soaring sales for Romanian wines throughout 2018. With a clear focus on producing high-quality wines at an exceptional value, it’s easy to see why savvy shoppers have embraced the delights of Romania’s thriving wine industry.
