Moments to expect during the wine tour in Transylvania:
Sibiu walking tour
We start our trip with a short walking tour of Sibiu, European Region of Gastronomy in 2019. The city has a vibrant multicultural scene but also has a special place in Romanian gastronomy and wine-making. Local producers take great pride in their roots and products so this will be a perfect introduction to our trip!
The hills around Sibiu were historically known as part of Transylvania's Wine Land. People used to harvest only white grapes and produce specific types of wine: Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Royal Maiden. We'll visit a family-owned local vineyard, have a walking tour and learn about their wine-making tradition, the family business and old stories from the area!
A delicious wine tasting
After all this walk & talk, time to get to the practical stuff: we'll enjoy a guided tasting of 5 types of wine from the region, accompanied with home-grown and locally-sourced Romanian snacks and appetizers that go very well with the wines. With such beautiful views of the area, I'm pretty sure you'll want to have a 2nd, even a 3rd glass of wine :)
