Romania

Sandwiched between Bulgaria and Ukraine, this large country is on the same latitude as Bordeaux and Burgundy. The resulting climate, combined with a culture that is Latin and therefore more conducive to wine than its Slavic neighbours, points immediately to fine wine production. Postcommunism however, the transition from quantity to quality has been slow. One beacon of virtue is Cramele (Winery) Recaş which makes well-packaged, modern-style varietal wines at very reasonable prices. This winery was formerly owned by the state but was bought out by its management and is now as advanced as any in Western Europe. It is found near Timișoara which is in the furthest west of the country near Serbia, a mere seven hours’ drive from the capital, Bucharest!
