Cricova Wine Tour and Monasteries

Cricova Wine Tour is intended to offer you a chance to visit the second largest wine cellar in the world (120km) and see their vineyards just nearby. Good climate (300 sunny days a year) and fertile soil create favorable conditions for growing elite French grapes (Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Merlo, Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Muscat) as well as the local ones that's why Cricova Winery is famous for its splendid wines, especially Champagne. They organize guided English-speaking tours in the electric car along tunnels, streets that are named after particular wine (Cabernet, Dyonisis, Sauvignon, Champagne etc), a visit to the Golden Collection and elaborately designed wine tasting halls, they also show you a movie about this remarkable winery. The tour culminates in wine tasting! After Cricova we will move on to Old Orhei cave monastery carved into a limestone rock in Middle Ages (fantastic setting) and then to splendid Curchi monastery located in a nice, green area. This tour is perfect for photography lovers. A Must!

A Recent Review of this tour

I did two tours with Valery and both were excellent. Valery did everything he had promised - and actually even more than that. Communication was very easy and in addition to seeing all the interesting sights of Moldova, I had very interesting and informative conversations with him. Highly recommended!
