That is an excelent winery very close tot the capital of Repulic of Moldova. Great tour, a little expensive. Good wines and very luxourious taste halls. We tasted some sorts of wine and all of them were exceptional. You can buy them at a fair price.

We went on a tour of the winery before having the wine tasting. It was really cool to see all the wine barrels and storage of wines, whether it was the champagne bottles or people's personal wine collection. The wine is also very good! We had our tasting in one of the rooms but any room would be great for... More

As other reviewers have said this place is interesting even if you are not into wines. The tours take you through their tunnels to see the kms and kms of barrels and bottled wines. The wine tasting was excellent and if you buy some wine while there it is very very affordable.

A unique and amazing place (for groups mainly), deep down under, tens of kilometers of roads and millions of liters of wine. Dinner with wine-tasting recommended. Appr 45 minutes from Chisinau.

This place is a piece of Moldova. It hosts the biggest caves used for wine storage in Europe and it's history is captivating. A visit to its underground Wine City will give a first hand information on wine processing, Moldovan traditions and latest technologies on wine making. The friendliness of the guides is second to none, and the final wine... More

You'll have the privilege to listen to one of the best storytellers ever. Stories about the greater region of Moldova, various wine technologies and techniques. Consider that Yuri Gagarin himself spent 2 days there. He needed 2 days because he left the second day. It's an overwhelming experience you should not miss. But make sure you have a reservation before... More
