I could never imagine a wine storage that is. Deep underground to keep wine at the ideal temperature 14degrees, inside a limestone mountain tunnel under ground. Celebrities and leaders - putin, merkel store their wines here! The tasting rooms with their diverse themes and the...More

We had a booked trip to Chisinau. Our trip included the Cricova Winery, too. Our trip started with a tour of the underground in a long open cart. We had great expectations since some of our family members visited a few years ago and they...More

Everyone in Europe knows that best affordable wines come from Moldova. It's almost criminal that we don't have more Moldovan options in Canada. Cricova produces some exquisite wines, and their winery tour will be one of the most awe inspiring wineries you will ever see....More

Really enjoyed my visit to Cricova winery, about 10 miles north of Chisinau. Easy to access using public transport. Use bus No 2 from downtown Chisinau for the 30 min trip north to Cricova for a whopping 4.5 lei (22 cents) on a soviet era...More

Did you go with an organized tour with guide from Chisinau or did you take public transportation and get a guide at the winery? How much time would you recommend for the visit? Thanks. Charles Louis
