The significant Roman influence on the culture has lasted through the centuries, with wine production in prominent roles. 

In the 19th century, Romania suffered from Phylloxera as did most of the rest of the world. When the mass replanting took place, many of the indigenous varietals were replaced with more popular French ones. Today, Romanian grapes are a mix of the French-European stalwarts as well as domestic grapes such as Frâncuşă, Fetească Albă, and Tămâioasă for whites, Fetească Neagră, and Băbească for reds.
