Moldova Wine & Food – Here’s Your Invitation! #WinePW

Moldova Food & Wine Pairings – Traditional and Creative
August 2019 I had the pleasure of being included on the first press trip sponsored by the Wine of Moldova. After the trip I approached my contacts in the organization to gauge their interest in collaborating with our Wine Pairing Weekend group of bloggers, and here we are! On July 11th, our Wine Pairing Weekend blogging group will be sharing our suggestions for combining wine from the little known wine country of Moldova with foods traditional or wildly creative.

Two of the wineries in Moldova have underground wine cellars so large, they have city-style maps, street names and you move around by car or bus!

Moldova Wines
If I told you Moldova is tucked in between Ukraine and Romania, would you be able to find it on a map? I didn’t think so! If you’d like to learn a bit more about Moldova Wines, here’s a link to an overview. If you need a little guidance on Moldovan foods, here’s a link some good ideas. My favorite on our trip was plăcintă, a dough filled with a number of tasty foods ranging from cabbage to cheese to potato, yum!

If this has piqued your interest in Moldovan wines, good! They’re not so easy to find in the US, but here’s a reliable source and one of the organizers of our event – Wine of Moldova USA.
