Left you when i was in the car to Galati.
And even when it’s just 70 km. it took the rest of the day to arrive in Galati, just because of all the nice views and villages along the E87.
About Galati: It’s a real big city with historycal places and buildings but it’s also a city of heavy industry (steel and shipyards).
Never mind that, i’m sure you will like a walk along the Danube Riverbank Promenade as much as i did.
By coïncedence ( it theat exists) i found a big statue of Mihai Eminescu in the central park.
Time to get some to eat and to find a place to sleep.
Well a restaurant was no problem, there are many. I decide to eat fish.
I asked for the wine-card, but the lady who serverd me said no,.. i will bring you a surprise.
The surprise was golden, fresh and dry. She told me the name Feteasca-Alba from Odobesti vineyards. Odobesti is a small village near Foscani.
She told me it’s about 2 hours from there and showed me the card where to find it.
After a good night rest at Galati Hotel i took te car and a map and went to Odobesti.
Found the Tatuna Odobesti where the Mosconi family made me a wine-tasting who i will remember for a long time.
Odobesti is the oldest vineyard in Romania – since the 17th. century.
Besides the white wine i tasted in Galati they also make great wines in french standard, like Merlot and Pinot Noir.
The owner told me also about the Panciu vineyard. An unique vineyard and just 5 km away.
The only place in Romania where they make a white wine, processed after the Champagne method.
So i went back to the car and drove (very careful) to Panciu.
Was a short but nice tour in the green hills, all covered with grapes ( it could be france as well)
The “Champagne” tasted soooo good. Anyway time to get some to eat.
Drove back to the motorway and made a stop in Adjus where i bought sandwiches and caffé.
Felt ok but tired, so no more wine today, will look for a place to sleep and to see where to go tomorrow.
