Recipes from Your Friendly Vampire

Ever since the fourth century B.C., long before tales of Vampires spread
throughout the land, the Transylvanian people mastered the art of producing wine ...

Wines & Drinks from TransylvaniaPlato proclaimed the vineyards of Transylvania to be the finest in the world.

The Wines became of such world renown that in the First Century B.C., King Burebista ordered the destruction of the vineyards to deter the incursions of foreign invaders into the land.

Fortunately, many of the vines escaped destruction, and the memories and knowledge of a wine-loving people refused to die ...

As night falls upon any city, patrons are drawn to pubs and clubs in search of a way to quench their unyielding thirst…similar to the vampires whom have been roaming our streets for thousands of years. Only the finest spirits, wines and non-alcoholic beverages aimed to please the palates of distinguished guests (both the dead and undead) are available through Transylvania Imports and Vamp N.R.G.

Vampire wine is now the top grossing Eastern European wine in the United States. The vineyards literally are in beautiful Transylvania, not far from Romania's second largest city, Timosara, where today there is a pronounced Italian influence.

As the leading wine from Eastern Europe, enthusiasts enjoy the crisp taste of the Vampire Pinot Grigio, which picked up a gold medal at the Long Beach Grand Cru and consistently outperforms the Italian Pinot Grigio that costs twice the price. The light and fruity Vampire Merlot is of course, the company's best selling wine. The Vampire Cabernet is the winemaker's favorite, and the Vampire Pinot Noir is the owner, Michael Machat's favorite.

Mr. Machat is fond of saying, "There is no where else in the world is it possible to get such a good pinot noir at the price one can buy our Vampire Pinot Noir.”

Equally surprising is the Vampire Chardonnay, which is made in the French style with an abundant fruit flavor and an accent of oak.

Over time a pure, triple distilled Vampyre Vodka originated a succulent red colour with a silky flavor like no other top-shelf vodka. Vampyre Vodka's ancient recipe is the essential choice for dedicated vodka drinkers around the world. Triple distilled in England by G&J Greenall, the distillers of many prestigious spirits, Vampyre Vodka stands above its competition, offering patrons wickedly smooth, red coloured vodka with the viscosity so great that is seems to cling to a Martini glass. It's a great treat for guests at any Halloween Party.
