CrameRomania.ro, the only bilingual online database of wine cellars în Romania, launches Romania’s Wine Map, a handy tool for all those who want to discover Romania as a wine-growing destination.
Romania’s wine map is aimed at identifying distinct areas in Romania, as well as helping tourists find the wine cellar they want to visit. The map contains an updated list of local vineyards and wine cellars, whether they are larger or smaller, and does not necessarily work as a tourist guide, but rather has an educational purpose, being an instrument by which wine lovers can discover wine cellars and wine areas from Romania.
Focus on the wineries
The emphasis is on wine cellars that are involved in wine tourism: over 70 wine cellars present on the map open their doors to tourists, 14 of them offer accommodation. The map will be constantly updated.
“We are launching a new wine map as we want to promote Romania as a wine-growing destination and to support the local wine cellars. We have a huge potential to be exploited and we contribute significantly to the development of wine tourism through our CrameRomania.ro and ReVino.ro projects, as well as through the wine cellar tours and the events we organize,” says Alina Iancu, project manager.
Small guide of local varieties
The map also contains a small guide of local grape varieties representative for Romania. Thus, tourists will have the opportunity to learn the history and particularities of some grape varieties such as Feteasca alba, Feteasca regala, Feteasca neagra, Tamaioasa romaneasca, Grasa de Cotnari, Cramposie selectionata, Negru de Dragasani, Sarba or Busuioaca de Bohotin.
The map is printed in 1500 copies and is available in both Romanian and English, in open A3 format and A6 closed. It can be purchased online or from wine cellars, wine bars or specialized stores.
CrameRomania.ro is the only bilingual online database of wine cellars in Romania. The nonprofit project, created and developed by wine enthusiasts, aims at developing wine tourism and increasing the curiosity of those who travel to Romania’s wine, wine cellars and vineyards.
