Moldovan winemakers performed over Prut last weekend. It happened at the Moldovan Wine Festival organized in Snagov, Romania.
This year, the event gathered over ten thousand visitors, twice as many as last year. In addition to wines, guests also discovered the music and gastronomy specific to the Moldovan people. 32 winemakers from the Republic of Moldova participated at the festival.
