Moments to expect during the Bike & Wine Tour in Bucharest:
Premium winery visit & tasting
We will visit a typical wine cellar in the famous wine producing region of Dealu Mare in Prahova. Privately owned by a premium wine producer, we will enjoy a delicious wine tasting, learn about the history of wine producing in the region and grape varieties. You will also be served a light snack of traditional cold cuts and cheeses.
A bike ride in Romania's vineyards
The hills of Dealu Mare are filled with vineyards. Besides the picturesque views, biking in the area you will pass local roads with little traffic, meet locals and see how they live and stop at a very old, small wooden church, hidden from the world. A peaceful, almost idyllic life. With delicious wine!

We really enjoyed the day in the countryside with our guide Oana. She accommodated our special requests and worked hard to make sure we enjoyed the day. One of the best wine tastings we have experienced anywhere in the world - a passionate host, great wine and good food! All in all, a highly recommended day.
