The history of wine in Romania goes all the way back to the Daco-Roman period. French influence also contributed to the development of the Romanian wine market by bringing new types such as Merlot, Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon. Unfortunately, Romanian wine production was reduced during the Communist regime because of the decision to eliminate foreign grape varieties.
The vineyards in Romania are spread either in the form of a continuous chain or scattered in vineyard regions. There are seven wine regions, specifically: Crisana and Maramures, Muntenia and Oltenia, Transylvania, Banat, Moldova, Dobrogea and the Danube terraces. These regions consist of approximately 40 vineyards, and over 160 wine centers famous for their products. Romania’s total vineyard area peaked in 2019, totaling approximately 182,600 hectares. This is the largest vineyard surface recorded in the last ten years. Of the total vineyard area in 2018, over 14,000 hectares were destined for the production of a Romanian wine variety called Feteasca Regala.
Wine tourism in Romania and the variety of wine-related events in the country, such as the International Wine Festival and the Bucharest Cheese and Wine Show underline the fact that the Romanian wine market is constantly growing.
