The 1980s is a much maligned decade. But it wasn’t all bad. Yes, there were acid-washed jeans, but there was also Quantum Leap and Airwolf. OK, that didn’t help, did it? In the UK, the 1980s may not have been the golden age of fashion, but the great value for money offered by Romania’s Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon meant it was the golden age of Romanian wine. Unfortunately a bloody revolution and a downward economic spiral all but destroyed the dream. But Romanian wines are back. As one of the largest wine producing nations in the world and with a winemaking history dating back of 6000 years, these wines should not be underestimated. The great thing, that hasn’t changed since the 1980s, is that Romanian wine still punches well above its price bracket.
