Abel’s Wine Bar offers you a wine tasting in Bucharest

To understand Romania, you should taste its wine.

When visiting Romania, it’s a shame to skip one, very important, part of romanian culture and tradition, that is still a mystery for most foreghn visitors: wine.

Almost 200.000 hectares of vineyards, over 100 wine cellars with tradition and award winning wines in global contests, more than 12 native vine varieties unique in the world, and thousands of years of wine tradition. Yes, you read correctly, thousands of years of wine tradition. Actually, Romania has one of the oldest wine tradition in the world – more than 6000 years of viticulture and it is believed that Dionysos, the God of wine, was born on this land.

Now that we’ve captured your attention with facts and beautiful history, how about some wine tasting? To understand Romania, you should taste its wine.

When visiting Bucharest, stop by Abel’s Wine Bar, located in Old Town and one of the few places where you can enjoy a wine tasting in Buchareste and sample some of the country’s most exquisite wines.

At Abel’s you’ll find a variety of romanian wines that can be enjoyed in a wine flight, or can be relished by full glass or bottle. This is one of the few places, where old school wine etiquette is still followed. After a friendly chat with the Wine Guide about your preferences in wine, you’ll be offered to try the wine before accepting the pour, regardless if you would like to enjoy a single glass of wine or a hole bottle.

When choosing a wine flight experience, along with amazing taste of reds, whites, roses and sparklings the Wine Guide will unveil the legends of the vineyards, tell stories about the people that created the wine and their secrets of the wine making. It is not just drinking wine, it is sensory experience with a incursion in romanian culture and tradition and fascinating insights into the world of Romanian wine production.

The experience is deliciously enjoyable and educational in the same time. You’ll feel like having a guided wine tour of Romania, without leaving Old Town Bucharest.

Abel’s wine menu offers more than 100 labels of wines from both New World – South America, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand – and the Old Continent. Thus, if you care for variety, you can taste some of the best wines from all over the world. And, if in the process you’ll fell in love with a certain wine, Abel’s have all their menu wines on special take away price, so you can take home your newly founded favorite wine bottle and enjoy it with your loved once.

Stop by anytime during the week or make a reservation for the weekend. We will gladly welcome you with romanian hospitality and great wine.

Vin Nero d’Avola

Vin Nero d'Avola

Nero d'avola

Nero d’Avola este cel mai important si cel mai cultivat soi din Sicilia. De multe secole un volum foarte mare de Nero d’Avolo s-a produs pe insula. Soiul are o importanta istorica deosebita pentru Sicilia si numele sau din prezent se trage de la orasul Avola, localizat in zona sudica a coastei. Zona a fost un punct important de comert in perioada Evului Mediu. Nero d’Avola a fost folosit frecvent sa adauge culoare si corp vinurilor italiene de o calitate mai slaba.

Tradus, Nero d’Avola inseamna “Negru de Avola”, o referinta la culoare foarte inchisa a strugurelui. In  secolul XX, Nero d’Avola a fost folosit deseori in cupaje. In secolul XXI , norocul strugurelui s-a schimbat considerabil si Nero d’Avola devine tot mai popular si comercializat.

In functie de procesul de vinificatie, din Nero d’Avola se pot realiza vinuri cu mult corp si un potential de invechire foarte bun sau vinuri tinere si fresh.

Un vin tanar din Nero d’Avola are note de prune si fructe rosii, in timp ce varianta mai complexa (baricata) ne poate oferi note de ciocolata si mure.

Nero d’Avola este un vin taninos cu o aciditate medie si un corp puternic. De asemenea, poate fi si foarte delicat atunci cand este plantat la o altitudine mai mare, unde temperatura mai joasa restrictioneaza nivelul de alcool.

Daca iubesti un vin rosu sec, cu mult corp, precum Cabernet Sauvignon sau Syrah, te vei imprieteni repede cu domnul “Negru de Avola”. Pentru noi a fost dragoste la prima degustare.

Datorita culorii sale generoase, din Nero d’Avola se poate produce si rose. Cativa “pioneri” ai vinului, au inceput sa cutive Nero in California si sudul Australiei.

Va asteptam cu drag sa incercati un pahar de Nero d’Avola la Abel’s Wine Bar.

Armagnac, ce o fi ala ? parca am auzit de el. E Cognac ? Nu e frate!
Am adaugat in meniul nostru de tarii – Armagnac. Este o chestie noua si pentru noi, asa ca ne-am documentat putin. Va facem un mic rezumat.

Armagnac-ul se produce in regiunea Armagnac din Gascony, sud-vestul Frantei.

Este distilat din struguri la fel ca Cognac-ul. La Armagnac se folosesc traditionalele aparate de distilat de tip “turn” in timp ce la cognac (precum si la whisky) se folosesc aparatele de tip “oala”.

Armagnac-ul este apoi baricat in butoaie de stejar inainte de a fi imbuteliat in sticle. Productia este supravegheata de Institut national de l’origine et de la qualité (INAO) si de Bureau National Interprofessionel de l’Armagnac (BNIA).
Armagnac a fost printre primele zone din Franta care a inceput sa distileze bauturi alcoolice, dar volumul de productie este mult mai mic decat Cognac-ul si de aceea este mai putin cunoscut in afara Europei. In plus, Armagnacul este in mare parte produs si comercializat de producatori mici, iar productia de Cognac este dominata de branduri mari.

 

 

Cum se bea Armagnac-ul ?

Se savureaza cu inghitituri mici. Unele persoane pot alege sa puna o picatura de apa (la fel ca la single malt-uri) pentru ai deschide si mai mult aromele. Aerati paharul, la fel ca la vin, dar aveti grija cat bagati nasul in el. Gradul de alcool incepe de la 40%, asa ca va cam poate arde parul din nas! Incercati cu o singura nara deasupra guri paharului.

Soarbeti un pic si lasati-l sa se plimbe pe toate papilele inainte de inghitire. Vaporii vor incepe sa ajunga prin zona olfactiva. Uneori instinctul este de incordare sau de tinere a resarmagnacpiratiei – relaxati-va si dupa ce ati inghitit, inhalati pentru aprecierea finalului.

Armagnac este cel mai bine savurat alaturi de un pahar de apa, o ceasca de cafea sau cu un trabuc bun.
