If you only have time to visit one winery in Chisinau then make sure it's this one. Very professional service in all respects with guides speaking several languages. Very interesting history of the origins of this place and the wine is quite good too !!...More

I enjoyed touring this winery's cellars better than Milestii Mici, mainly because we had a really interesting tour guide who was full of enthusiasm. The cellars are extensive and there is wine tasting at the end, depending on the tour package ordered. The cellars are...More

Interesting tour, even if the organization is not quite top. You need to prebook, no entrance is possible if you are going directly to the winery. It is surely a nice experience...and the wines are good!

I didn't know what to expect despite having watched a few videos on YouTube. We were warned to dress warmly to avoid the 12 degrees (Celsius). Others in the tour were visibly cold for wearing shorts! The cellars are huge and somehow just bigger than...More

Look,everything was just great, until the time of wine tasting came...Carina, our guide, behaved as if the people who did not choose this opt are garbage! So rude and unfair! She did not even explain to us what to do and how to go back...More

If I understood correctly, this is the world's second largest wine cellar. With medium-sized golf carts, you're wondering underground. It all ends with wine tasting with different cheeses. If you visit the Moldavia this should be a must.
