Romanian Bio-Red Wine
From La Sapata in eastern Romania close to the mouth of the Danube River in the Black Sea comes this red wine made from the local grape variety Băbească Neagră. It is an ancient grape variety that can be dated back at least to the 14th century. Literally translated, Băbească neagră means “Grandmother’s Variety”, which is perhaps a bit misleading, as the grape variety mainly produces lighter red wines with great freshness. This also applies here, where you get a fresh and fruity red wine. 3000 bottles have been produced.
Colour: Ruby red
Aroma: Aromatic and red fruit with cherries and plums
Tasting notes: Light to medium-bodied with a focus on freshness and plenty of cool, juicy fruit
Serving suggestion: Served at 16-17 degrees for lighter dishes of e.g. pasta, light meat or cheese
La Sapata Crama Delta Dunarii is located in the Danube Delta in the eastern part of Romania. The delta flows into the Black Sea to the east, and to the north the area shares a border with Ukraine. The climate in the Danube Delta is characterized by cold winters and hot, dry summers. Romania has a long tradition of wine production, and here you can find both well-known, international varieties such as riesling and merlot, and local specialties such as babeasca neagra, feteasca neagra, feteasca regala and a number of other hard-to-pronounce (but excellent) grapes.
La Sapata cultivates its approximately 20 hectares organically and with respect for the nature around the fields, but they also have a goal of social sustainability. In recent decades, the Romanian rural areas have been gradually depopulated as more young people travel to the cities, and La Sapata therefore works with an “ethical commitment” to curb the large emigration by creating jobs for the local population in the rural areas.
