Romanian Wine

Romania has one of the oldest wine traditions in all of Europe, dating back to ancient times before Greek civilization. Indigenous grapes have always prospered, and viticulture followed. Though geographically situated as it is adjacent to Slavic countries, a good part of its culture and language is also Latin-based owing to its southern neighbors.
