They are just great. The tour is just perfect and relaxed. Wine presentation is friendly and just perfect. Staff is incredible friendly. Food is really good. Overall: they just make us happy and made us come over again. Just go and you will see I’m right.

So, this place is undergoing renovations. They are open to a public for a year now. New owners have a great vision for this place, I hope it turns out good for them.
Reservation for a tour is needed. Do not expect to have your e-mail answered, because the person handling the reservations does not speak English. Ask your hotel receptionists to make a reservation for you at least 2 days before you want to come. The tour however was in English and our guide was amazing. good presentation, perfect English.
We took tasting of 3 wines, because we came with the car.

It's not the easiest to get to (bus from Gara Centru in Chisinau to Anenii Noi bus station and then taxi to the castle), but it's well worth it! The architecture is a pretty cool blend of old (French like castle) and new (Italian architect currently overseeing the renovation). The staff is pretty welcoming and we had a great tour guide who spoke perfect English and went out of his way to give us a great experience. The visit of the castle and production site is very interesting, and it ends on an amazing note in their superb restaurant with a great degustation of their wines. We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of all 3 wines we tasted.
At the moment it's still work in progress, but once finished the whole site should be beautiful. Although it's perhaps even better right now as not very crowded.

Amazed to discover such a nice place in Moldova were people invested recently their time and passion.
The old winery was restored keeping the old history and in the same time having that brand new touch.
They produce as well moldovan wine other there.
The guide explained with a lot of personal investment the history of the place, how they produce wine and what type of wine we were tasting.
Loved the atmosphere!
Practical info:
* the tour is made in romanian, russian and english
* the cheapest tour is 300 mld lei which include on hour tour and tasting 3 types of wine
* the place is ~ 40km from the Chisinau, we had a car, the best option. However i guess there are shuttles as well.
* the place has a nice modern restaurant which offers a local cuisine, we didn't have time to enjoy it
* soon they will have rooms to rent in a hotel

Enjoy!
