VINTEST – National Wine Fair of Romania, 2014
The 4th edition of the Romanian National Wine Fair Vintest took place at the Palace Hall in Bucharest, from 24 to 26 October 2014 and it was addressed to our own national wine industry. VINTEST is organized by Lucia Pirvu, a wine expert, who is a wine event organizer since 2004.
Each visitor tasted some wines at all the producer stands and the lovers of the Bacchus liquor found out interesting details about the methods of winemaking and vineyard maintenance. Media partners, delegations from embassies and Romanian personalities were among the visitors.
Vintest represented the last event of the Campaign named I love the Romanian wine (who doesn’t love it? … ), an initiative of the Association for the Promotion of Culture and Wine, supported by Domeniile Anastasia. The campaign was held in 22 wineries, museums and institutions in six winery areas (Buzias, Minis, Mehedinti, Dragasani Dealu Mare and Vrancea).
There were also representatives of the Research Station – Development of Viticulture and Winemaking from Pietroasa, where Tamaioasa Festival was held this year (a wine festival). Pietroasa belongs to Dealu Mare Winery ant it is famous not only for wine but also for the fact that here, in an old quarry, it was discovered The Hen with golden chickens, the thesaurus of Romania.
I have tasted wines from the winery areas Panciu, Sara, Logos Cellars, Dealul Dorului and Boieru, which have dry white wines with fruity flavors. I also admired a gastro show performed by gourmet chefs from the Tourism Association of Chefs and Confectioners.
Participating in such an event as Vintest is a beautiful experience, people are happy when it comes to wine :), warm and friendly. Besides, it gives you the chance to know what wines you’d like for buying in the future.
Vintest is a great opportunity for wine producers to promote their brand and products in order to establish trade relationships with the Romanian Wine Trade. In the same time, it is an occasion to develop the wine tourism in Romania.
