    Old Town
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Enjoy a private, cozy and informative wine tasting session in the first wine bar to be reopened in Bucharest after the 1989 revolution. Located inside a century old house displaying traditional Romanian architecture, the bar’s elegant interior and the wine bottles positioned like books on shelves create a perfect setting for wine tasting. You’ll be able to taste 4 different varieties of local wines along with a plate of traditional cheese & dry sausages. Thus, whether you’re a casual wine drinker or a true connoisseur, you’ll enjoy yourself as you discover the distinctive “terroir” of Dealu Mare – a famous vineyard region where wine is nicknamed “liquid gold”. Why is this Romanian wine region so valued? Because, same as Bordeaux or Tuscany, Dealu Mare sits alongside the 45th parallel meaning it has a very hot climate until late September. The soils are mostly clay or limestone based which translates into perfect conditions for red wines. Aside from giving details on the wine varieties, your private guide will also tell you about the industry’s turmoil during the communist period: the soviets encouraging mass production over quality, the confiscation of farmers’ lands and how Romania lost half of its vineyards immediately after the 1989 revolution. Nowadays, the country already went through a process of mass restoration and the wine industry is getting back in shape. In conclusion, the quality of the wines combined with the knowledge of the guide & staff will help you understand why Romania is finally reclaiming its rightful position as a top wine country, currently being the world's 13th producer. In vino veritas!

This is an outstanding tour at a reasonable price. Our guide, Mihai, was very knowledgeable about the wines and the meats and cheeses were delicious. We had no idea Romanian wines were this good. But the best part was the knowledge and enthusiasm Mihai has for Romania and
