The third edition of RO-Wine | The International Wine Festival of Romania took place on 19 and 20 May 2018, at Fratelli Studios! An edition in which the wine was, again in the spotlight, for two consecutive days!

To count a few of the distinguished guests: Nicholas of Romania and Alina-Maria of Romania, Dan Bittman, Andi Moisescu, Adrian Despot, Răzvan Exarhu, Ilie Năstase, Lili Sandu și Silviu Țolu, Cezar Ouatu, Ciprian Marica, Ioan Andone, Marius Florea Vizante, Zoli Toth, Gabriel Liiceanu, Cătălin Striblea, Ștefan Lungu or Cosmin Tudoran.
”This third edition of the Ro-Wine festival was truly fascinating and the results are beyond expectations! We were overwhelmed by these two dreamlike days full of unique events, beautiful people, eager to find the excellence in premium wines. We had many foreign guests, who were also drawn by the unique wines that could be found at the festival. There were buyers from Japan, Belgium, and Holland mostly looking for local varieties, while the Romanian consumers were fascinated by the extreme wines and the ones available in 1,5 and 3 L bottles, as well as the newly launched Romanian wines.”, said Marinela V. Ardelean, RO-Wine organizer and The Wine Book of Romania’s author.
