When Vino recently began to embrace international wines, our followers became giddy at the prospect of finding bottles from Bordeaux and Rioja on our shelves. But Romania? It may not be the first winemaking region on your lips but the Eastern European country is in fact the twelfth largest wine producer in the world, producing 545, 700 tons of wine in 2003. Due to the affordability of its vineyards, Romania has become a popular choice for winemakers from more recognized wine nations such as France, Italy and Germany. This 2005 Pinot Noir by Fruvimed Medgidia comes from Romania’s Murfatlar wine region, just off the coast of the Black Sea.
We’ll also be pouring the refreshing white Nosiola 2008 by Endrizzi, a top-class producer of indigenous monovarietals in Trentino. Elegant and clean, this perfect Spring wine has been recognized in L’Espresso and Guida al Vino Quotidiano Slow Food, and by Vini di Veronelli and Vini Buoni d’Italia.
