Along with established producers, whose presence at RO-Wine has become a tradition – Averesti, SERVE, Jidvei, Gramofon, Vintruian Group (Caii de la Letea & Domeniile Prince Matei), wines from small but surprising will also be available, such as Valeaeden or Domeniile Pripa. The most important wine distributors and importers will present the wineries with top picks from their portfolios, and everything will be "seasoned" with gourmet bits, pastries, speciality coffee and craft beer.
