Newly launched by the Romanian winery Cramele Recas, the Martisor Pinot Grigio is a wine dedicated to celebrating one of Romania’s spring traditions to honour women.

Martisor is an ancient Romanian tradition when men give presents to the women they love, be they their mother, wife, sister, aunt or daughter. Men give the women a handmade red and white string necklace, believed to keep their loved one strong and healthy.
