Wines of Romania introduces the world to Romanian wine

Wines of Romania is a private project focused on the development and promotion of Romanian wine both domestically and internationally. Founded by Marinela Ardelean, wine expert and co-organizer of the RO-WINE festival, the project is a digital universe dedicated to local wines, wine lovers, buyers, producers and investors.

The Wines of Romania team consists of wine experts, journalists, marketing and communications specialists who have the same goal – to introduce Romanian wine to the world, increase its visibility and support Romanian producers. Wines of Romania offers partners various activities through which they can develop new business/export opportunities.
