Milestii Mici, Chisinau

4.3
Registered with Guinness World Records as the home of the largest wine collection in the world, the cellars at Milestii Mici are so big that you have to drive your car inside to tour them. The cellars cover 55 km (34 mi) of tunnels within more than 200 km (124 mi) of natural limestone galleries. Drive down avenues of cabernet, chardonnay, and sauvignon while your guide gives you the history of the cellars and secrets of wine production. The last stop is the tasting room, where you can taste a variety of wines produced by the winery. You will need to book tours ahead of time, and your car must have space for a guide, who will join you in your own vehicle to narrate the tour.

  • If I hadn't visited before cricova probably would have remained much more impressed. Here they won't see anything like the wines but only their record collection of bottles. Excellent typical restaurant with music and native foods, but nothing more. The underground tour is fast and without anything worth mentioning. If you have to visit a winery best cricova, as an organization, history and contents.

  • Great guided tour of the largest underground storage of wine in the world. Fun wine tasting and great guide. Yes, there are things I'd change to make it more visitor friendly... but overall, it's a must visit if visiting Moldova.
  • I wouldn't recommend coming here if you want to taste wine. There are rules here which I do not understand. My friend and I went to a tasting which includes 5 wines and food. However the 5 wines never happened. Since we are only two people we were only able to try two wines. Which were chosen for us. If I were a business I would want to have my guest try the five wines as advertised or have them simply try the five wines to get an understanding of what they can buy. The two wines we tried were not great. We had to ask our tour guide for more bottles. She was a bit hesitant but was able to get us two extra bottles. The two extra were not great either. The wines didn't compare to other vineyards we went to in the region. The food was average but we came to drink not eat. The service was excellent in the eating room. The tour could have been more informational but other than that it was not what we expected. I wouldn't recommend coming here if you want to try a variety of wines in a small group. The more people you have the more wines you can try. So come here in a big group. The experience was memorable.
  • Nice tour through the tunnels of the winery. Professional tour guides
  • Very good, very fine!
  • Deiving undergeound between wine barrels while a guide explains you about wine and history was a great experience. The place is huge with 200km of underground roads. You also get to see a wine reserve housing thousands of the best wines ever made and, provided you ask for it, get the chance to taste some of their wines. (If you've never been wine tasting don't worry, they also instruct you on how to do it properly)
