Default Romania, Moldova wine? wineries?

Hello,

I am planning a trip to Romania and Moldova, have any of you being there?

Can you please tell me what are considered the best wines and wineries?

What are the wine regions called?

What are their grape varieties?

Thanks,

Mario

Look for Bull's Blood, it's from Hungary and Romania.



Egri Bikaver, you mean...
And it's Hungarian, not Romanian.
Good wine.

The E. Bikaver is certainly Hungarian. We discovered this wine at
teh International Wine And Food Festival at the Epcot Center years ago
(1993?). The nice European ladies there advised that this was a style of
wine produced in Hungary and Romania, and so called due to it's intense
red color. It's a blend of four varietals, two of which I can't even
pronounce. There's more than one label of Bull's Blood in the region,
but the Bikaver is all I've been able to find stateside.

Egri Bikaver is Hungarian for ... Bull's Blood ;-)

All the above is correct except the "Hungary and Romania" part ;-)
I don't know of such a wine in Romania!
I've drink it at the Taverna (uca Vaci) but never in Romania.
But hey, I am not a specialist (although I have about 60 bottles of pre-1960
wines) so maybe a Romanian friend could help us here.

I believe that just "Bikaver" means Bull's Blood. "Egri" is a
reference to the town of Eger, and "Egri Bikaver" means "Bull's
Blood of Eger."

Probably, I am not sure as I don't speak Hungarian:-)
If some Romanian friend who speaks Hungarian could help us...
