Among the Arad brands, I stop at a famous wine, the Miniș Cadarca. Its history begins more than 250 years ago, when a nobleman who owned the Miniș estate knew how to capitalize on the natural resources of the area and through modern techniques for that era obtained a quality wine, which prevailed on major European markets. The beautiful story of this wine began in 1744, when thanks to the initiative of Count Antal Grassalkovich, red wine was first produced from raisined Cadarcă grapes. Since the end of the 18th century, this wine has been appreciated and consumed at the great noble courts. The success continued throughout the 19th century when the wine was awarded several times. It is currently a brand of the Arad vineyard, being produced and marketed by several companies.
