Moldovan wine is already very popular in Romania, due to its quality and value. But most Romanians know only a handful of brands.
In an effort to promote their best wines, dozens of Moldovan winemakers and producers are taking part in an exhibition this weekend to present their best products, organizers said.
The wine was flown on a special plane emblazoned with the message: „Wine of Moldova”- a legend alive.”
The Moldovan Wine Vernissage (private view) as it is called will take place at the NORD Events Center by Globalworth, organizers said Thursday.
Forty-five wineries or chateaux are taking part in the event, a mix of large and big companies in a bid to communicate face-to-face with the Romanian public.
To make the occasion even more enjyoyable, Bucharest Jazz Orchestra, Catalin Josan, Pasha Parfeni will entertain participants.
There will be 10,000 bottles of wine offered as prizes and a large number of tasting sessions for people who want to sample the wine before buying it.
A one-day ticket costs 60 RON and a weekend ticket is 100 RON.
Belarus was Moldova’s premier market for wines in 2020, followed by Romania. Czech, Russia and Poland came next— none of the last three are know for wine production.
In the Soviet Union era, Russia imported wine from Moldova and Georgia, due to the climate, tradition and excellent conditions for growing grapes. Its wine are made from local, international and Caucasian variety of grapes.
Last year, Moldova exported 2.99 billion lei (US$168 million) worth of wine products, almost 10% more than in 2020.
