About Wine Region

According to wine experts, Dobrugea has the best conditions for wine growing in Romania. Its continental climate with warm, dry summers, moderate winters, early springs and late autumns allow for long vegetation periods. Good soil structure and fertility, plenty of sun and low precipitation also make a difference. Outstanding rich-flavoured noble red and excellent white wines with natural sweetness are typical of this region.

 

The Dobrogea region is home to the Danube Delta, a 2,200 sq.mi. wildlife reserve designated by UNESCO as a “Reservation of the Biosphere”, the ancient port city of Constanta, and the seaside resorts stretching along Romania’s 152 mile Black Sea coast. From the port city of Tulcea, day cruises through the Delta’s waterways give travellers a glimpse of the abundant wildlife and the traditional fishing villages. Floating reed islands, dunes and waterways offer shelter to over 300 species of birds, countless fish and 1,150 species of plants. South of the Delta, the historical city of Constanta serves as a major port on the Black Sea. Constanta is a city that combines millennial history with modernism. It is a city that celebrates multi-culturalism, a town where East meets and blends with the West to generate a spectacular and lively spirit.
