The director general of “Moldova-Vin”, Valeriu Mironescu was appointed as head of the commission. The National Day of Wine was instituted in Moldova in 2002 and is organized under the patronage of the president Vladimir Voronin. The organizers of the event say that the festival aims at reviving and improving the wine field, promoting abroad Moldovan wines.
