About Wine Region

This area reaps the benefits of its perfect microclimate and its viniculture dates back to the 4th century BC, as evidenced by the variety of artefacts discovered in Thracian and Dacian graves. Wine trading on and along the Danube started with the first Greek settlements circa 630 BC. While the Dacian King Burebista (1st century BC) destroyed all the local vineyards to protect his people from the constant invasions by migrating peoples, the Romans were committed to the cultivation of the vineyards.

 

Ostrov is a commune in Constanța County, Romania. The name Ostrov is a word of Slavic origin, and it means “island”. The village itself is not located on an island, but rather on the banks of the Danube.
