Darko first discovered Romanian wine 27 years ago, while living in Bucharest, and tasted with his friends the well-known local white wines for which he had a real passion: Jidvei, Fetească and Cotnari.

He recommends to his friends the Swabian wine, sweet and rosy, digestive, which resembles Porto wine and which he considers to have a special taste compared to other wines produced in Europe.

“Romanian gastronomy, music and wine are extraordinary and must be promoted”

The strongest memories of the actor who brought him to life in Helsinki are related to the people he met in Romania, the delicious traditional dishes, the music and the local wine, which he thinks deserves its place on the international wine map. He was happy to find well-known labels of Romanian wines on the shelves of stores in Madrid and Barcelona, ​​but he believes that they should be made known further.

Darko believes that Romanian gastronomy, music and wine are extraordinary and could be promoted through events or festivals that bring them closer to a wider audience.
