HARVEST WINE FESTIVAL BY ROWINE
The last summer edition of RO-Wine | The International Wine Festival of Romania noted a series of absolute records in the history of the event so far – in number of exhibitors, visitors, wines tasted as well as gourmet dishes served. With the event becoming an attraction for foreign weekend wine tourists as well, organizers felt it is time to plan a horizontal development of the festival and decided to introduce to both local and European customers an “en primeur” tasting event focused on Romanian wines, but with a consistent presence of Italian and French wines as well.
Harvest Wine Festival, a gathering celebrating the new harvest wines, will take place in Bucharest on September 28-29, within the Timpuri Noi Square complex, focusing on the red wines of 2018 and the white wines of 2019, wines still a few steps away from unveiling their true potential, but already able to describe what the 2020 wine market will taste like.
„After the fourth edition in Bucharest we were able to demonstrate the truth of an old saying – after three editions, every event becomes a destination. I’m glad to say the we became a destination for foreign wine tourists, who came specifically to attend our wine festival. The new Gourmet section we introduced this year was also more successful than we hoped, therefore the necessity of a horizontal development of our events became apparent. We have a beautiful space, which already became a gastronomy hub for Bucharest, a place where interesting things happen all the time, and we felt that it was time to open that space for a broader audience through our wine events. The encounter between gastronomy and oenology was postponed for too long. I think it’s the right time to step up and be more involved in this rapidly growing market”, added Liviu Popescu, co-organizer RO-Wine | The International Wine Festival of Romania .
