“In welcoming the publication of this book dedicated to a piece of Romania – perhaps less well known to Italians, but no less important and captivating – we can only wish Marinela Ardelean to continue working with the same competence, professionalism, and enthusiasm that have enabled her to be convincing and persuasive, capable of making the truth of things perceptible and not simply their appearance.”
Dana Manuela Constantinescu
Former Ambassador of Romania in Italy, Malta, and San Marino
“This original initiative of Dr. Ardelean brings together the best of the great culinary tradition of Italy and the oenological tradition of her country of origin. An intelligent action of cultural diplomacy, it contributes to deepening the already intense and profound relations between the two peoples.”
Former Ambassador of Italy in Romania
“Marinela Ardelean fully deserves our congratulations and fondness. She did, on her own, something that entire institutions are not good at. It is a real delight to glance through The Wine Book of Romania, envisaging prolonged tastings and the refined “bouquet” we can offer to the European Oenology. She talks not only about the mercantile potential of a gustatory “value” but also about a present that has to be sipped together with the past; about a potential source of pleasure.”
