"Like Greece, Romania has a 3.000 years history of wine production. What might come as a surprise is the fact that this country remains one of the world’s greatest wine producers, with more than 500.000 tones annually. The main wine-growing regions are Cotnari, Tarnave, Murfatlar and Dealu Mare. Despite the fact that most local grape sorts have been destroyed by diseases, the modern wine production using established sorts deserve to be tasted", the source reads.
The first podium position went to Switzerland, the second to Ukraine, and following Romania are Canada, Brazil and England.
