… Our work gives us a great advantage over other wine enthusiasts since we have the opportunity to taste regularly all kinds of wine, without buying them. We taste at our customers, in fairs and exhibitions, at our friends’, and also every Saturday in the oenology club, to which we belong … Actually we have been wine tasting for the last 10 years…
We taste and we take notes. Moreover, Casa Moldova wine was conceived and launched during a wine tasting … We kind of shot a pigeon and killed a crow! And since “experience is valuable only when it is transmitted”, we will share with you! Give it a try!

Radu Nichita Macovei – founder and director of Casa Moldova

My name is Radu Nichita, some people call me Radu, others call me Nichita – it all depends on the country, companion, circumstances or degree of joy, elation, or intention. I am neither an oenologist, nor a sommelier. Set apart from specialists, immersed in my world, I would like to talk as simple as possible about the wine that is tasted or consumed at the table, surrounded by friends and buddies. With a bit of luck, I will try to post some videos and interviews from the world of wine, hoping that I can offer you pleasant and simple discoveries. With one condition: do not take wine seriously! … With regards to drunkenness, being a great wine amateur, I am convinced that by revealing the secrets of wine, and cultivating the pleasure of wine tasting, we can fight against excessive consumption. As they say here: “la modération a meilleur goût”.

Sometimes my language will seem technical and difficult, but still I do not fully agree with those who say that we must simplify the information to make it accessible to people who do not have a degree in viticulture, oenology, food industry, etc. I believe that we must begin to educate wine consumers so that they understand terms such as maceration, fermentation, wine body, viscosity…
