Home made wine, traditional Romanian way
It is very important to know that many Romanians follow a tradition of producing their own wine. This happens more on the country side, but basically many Romanians who have bigger vegetable gardens or who just want to enjoy some shadow from grape vine would make their own wine. They are often proud of their wine. Even though the quality greatly varies, you should at least try to be polite if you are asked to taste somebody's home made wine, and appreciate the effort your host has undertaken.
