Exploring the Underground Wonders of Cricova Winery

When most people think of wineries, they imagine rolling hills dotted with vineyards and cozy tasting rooms overlooking the scenic countryside. However, Cricova Winery in Moldova offers a truly unique and unforgettable experience by taking visitors underground to explore its vast network of tunnels and cellars.

Located in the small town of Cricova, just a short drive from the capital city of Chisinau, Cricova Winery is often referred to as an “underground city” due to its impressive underground labyrinth that stretches for over 75 miles. Originally used as a limestone mine in the 15th century, these tunnels were converted into wine cellars in the 1950s and have since become one of the largest wine cellars in the world.

Visitors to Cricova Winery can embark on a guided tour of the underground tunnels, where they will have the opportunity to explore the impressive collection of over 1.25 million bottles of wine that are carefully stored in the cool, dark cellars. The tunnels are lined with rows of wine barrels, and visitors will have the chance to learn about the history and winemaking process of Cricova Winery as they wander through the underground passages.

One of the highlights of the tour is the “National Wine Collection,” where visitors can see barrels of wine that have been gifted to the winery by world leaders and celebrities over the years. From Vladimir Putin to Queen Elizabeth II, the collection includes wines from some of the world’s most notable figures, making it a truly unique and impressive sight.

In addition to exploring the underground cellars, visitors can also enjoy wine tastings at Cricova Winery’s tasting room, where they can sample a variety of wines produced on-site. From crisp white wines to bold reds, there is something to suit every palate at Cricova Winery.

For those looking for a truly immersive experience, Cricova Winery also offers the opportunity to dine underground in one of their atmospheric tasting halls. Guests can enjoy a gourmet meal paired with Cricova wines while surrounded by the ancient limestone walls and rows of wine barrels, creating a magical and unforgettable dining experience.

Overall, a visit to Cricova Winery is a must for wine lovers and anyone looking to experience the unique underground wonders of Moldova.
