Romania - Wine Country

Romania has one of the oldest wine making traditions in the world, it's viticulture dating back more than 6000 years. Legend says that Dionysos, the god of wine, was born in Thracia, on what is nowadays the territory of Romania. Romania or Dacia as the Romans knew it, had a well-established wine culture.
