  • I really impressed when i saw this place. I couldn't expect that much.. i bought a collection wine and it was amazing.. I wish i could come in summer cause really cold place.  more »
  • A great excursion. Very informative. Disappointing tasting. I'm just not a big fan of Moldovan wines. And everything else is very interesting.

  • A beautiful place to visit in Moldova. A unique experience. Fine wines, very tasty. The place is old, but held up well. Council Butoias menu, with subterranean cellar tour, but you have to have your own car or taxi. Finally there is a tasting of 3 wines: a white, a red and a raisin wine accompanied by some (placenta). Should also buy wine directly there. I had a great time. Very good;))

  • 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.
  • Top wine cellar's! Impressive in every way!
  • 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)
  • The staff at this place is not very turist friendly. We tried severals time to book a tour her without success, so we drive over there to book a tour in person. We was told to wait 3 hours to the next available tour, we waited in line and when the 3 hours was past they told us it was fully booked. So we wasted 5 hours at this place.
  • Amazing wine cellars. Largest in Europe! The subterranean restaurant is gorgeous.
