Grape variety is probably one of the most easily understood criteria when choosing a wine. Grape varieties are now clearly stated on most wine labels around the world. Among them, the famous varieties are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Aligoté for white, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir for red.
Both are called international varieties, and as the name suggests, most countries produce wines of that variety. Of course, Romania is no exception, producing many international varietal wines.
However, many newcomers to Romanian wine, seeking something new, choose local varieties from the start and are unaware of the wonders of international varieties grown in Romania. Why not put up with the allure of indigenous varieties at first and start with international varieties?
If you have tasted similar varieties in other countries, it is not only easy to imagine the image of the taste, but if you drink while comparing it with that image, you will know the potential of Romanian wine.
