Romania has an impressive wine-making past. Archaeological finds have shown that primitive wine-making was in existence some 6,000 years ago. The ancient Greeks and the Romans made Romanian wine more widely known.
Today Romania has 275,000 hectares in cultivation for wine-making and produces about 8 million hectolitres per annum (approx. 10% of French production) which places it in the European top ten of wine-producing countries. The climate and the geology in Romania is very beneficial for wine growing.
