Regional Features & Food Pairings

Novac is grown in Oltenia in the south west and Romanian. Novac is difficult to grow, being sensitive to rain and prone to fungal diseases, with a short harvesting window. In winemaking, the dark-fruit aromas may be lost, so it is often blended with international varieties. Novac pairs well with a wide range of dishes, from red meats to game and rich stews. Its smoky notes make it especially suited to dishes with a charred flavour.
