Romanian wine gains PDO status

The European Commission has approved an application for PDO status for wine produced in Însurăței in southeastern Romania, joining 38 other registered wines in the country.

Romanian wine from Însurăței vineyard is now protected under EU law following a decision by the European Commission this week.

The wine is produced in Brăila county, in southeastern Romania, and can be white, red or rosé. The European Commission states that the vineyard has ancient origins and has done much in recent years to boost its ecological credentials with the aid of EU funding.

As such, the vineyard is also certified as organic, according to a statement by the European Commission in Romania.

The vineyard joins 38 other PDO-registered Romanian wines, bringing the total number of EU-protected Romanian wines (PDO, PGI and GI) to 52.

The EU protects over 1,750 wines which are listed on its e-bacchus database. France has the most PDO wines, with around 380.
