Romanian wines assessed by eight international experts in Mures

A jury made up of 8 international experts assessed Romanian wines for the first edition of “The Wine Book of Romania.” On August 26-27, the international jury convened at Valea Verde in Cund village, Mures County, in order to assess approximately 250 top-quality wines from Romania and the Republic of Moldova. The results of their assessments will be included in “The Wine Book of Romania,” the first guide that will bring together wines from the two countries’ vineyards, a book that will be published in March 2016.
The jury consisted of three Masters of Wine – Caroline Gilby (United Kingdom), Rod Smith (France) and Luiz Alberto (Brazil) – and important wine experts such as Paul Robert Blom (international wine taster, Netherlands), Helmuth Koecher (President of the Merano Wine Festival, Italy), Zoltan Szoverdfi-Szep (President of the RovinHUd, Romania), Cosmin Grozea (international wine taster, Romana) and Mi Yeun Hong (journalist and international wine taster, Korea).

“In April-August I personally visited around one hundred wineries in Romania and the Republic of Moldova and I tasted approximately three thousand wines. From every producer, I selected between zero and five labels for young wines and at most four labels for wines older than ten years. We have exceptional wines in Romania and that is precisely why it is important to get to know them and to promote them, something that will bring immense benefits to the Romanian wine industry. As a Romanian, I am happy that specialists from the highest level will be able to get to know for the first time local wines such as: Cramposie, Sarba, Busuioaca, Rara Neagra, Tamaioasa Romaneasca and many others,” Marinela Vasilica Ardelea stated.
The first edition of “The Wine Book of Romania” will be launched in March 2016 (the bilingual Romanian-English version) and will represent a complex guide of top-quality wines from Romania and the Republic of Moldova for the wide audience and for specialists and importers alike. The book will be sent to cultural institutes, Romanian embassies as well as to the most important international fairs and festivals.
Marinela Vasilica Ardelean, the initiator of this project, is one of the best-known and most-awarded wine specialists and a veritable ambassador of Romanian wines abroad. Last year she published the “50 Romanian Wines Meet 50 Italian Dishes” bilingual book, a volume that won second place this year at the Gourmand Drinks Awards competition and a special mention from the International Wine and Vine Organization. Marinela Ardelean is teaching at the Italian Chef Academy and has taken part, as jury member and jury president, in multiple national and international wine competitions.
