Bats Blood is grown, produced and bottled in Banat which is part of the historic region of Transylvania. It is bottled on the same estate where it is grown and picked.
The winery enjoys a Mediterranean climate, cooler than the rest of Romania, and dryer with a longer harvest season, allowing many varieties to ripen easily.
Legend has it that the Banat region of Romania was where Bacchus, the God of wine, spent his childhood certainly the first records of viticulture date back to the Roman Empire when it invaded and annexed the central part of Dacia in 106 AD.
Bats Blood is an award winning Merlot produced and supervised by Hartley Smithers who is one of the worlds most respected wine makers.
Bats Blood is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
