Cricova winery is the most visited winery in Moldova! This is really an amazing and huge place must to visit in our country. Cricova – the kingdom of wine, as guests also call it, is a winery hidden from the world in underground galleries and which is located only 15 km from Chisinau.

More than 120 km of underground galleries forming a real maze! Here the streets bear the names of wines and  the wines mature in oak barrels with a volume of 4 to 8 tons. A constant temperature of 12-14 degrees all year round, allows to store wine in perfect conditions. So do not forget warm clothes, it’s cold there!

Here is stored one of the biggest and most unique collections of bottles of wine, the number of which reaches about a million, dating from 1902. 80 meters underground you will visit the amazing cinema in the cave. The production section of sparkling wines according to the classical method “Champenoise Method” is really impressive, where sparkling wine is aged in a bottle for less than 9 months.

After an unforgettable tour at a depth of about 80 meters underground, the tour will be complete with a tasting of 3 types of wine in order to feel the true spirit of the winery.
