Cricova national wine collection

Cricova Winery: The Kingdom of Wine of Moldova

During our trip to Chisinau and the north part of the Republic of Moldova, we had an opportunity to visit a winery. Our Moldovan friends insisted that this is a must-do when in Moldova, so we listened to their recommendation.

Considering Moldova’s long standing tradition in producing wine, there are a few estates that have opened up in a museum style to showcase wine making methods but also their amazing cellars and wine collections. Cricova Winery is one of them.

We visited the underground galleries at Cricova, learnt more about the traditional process of making sparkling wine, saw the National Wine Collection and enjoyed a wine tasting experience. We share more about our experience below.
