The Largest Winery and Oldest Monastery in Moldova


This tour is designed to give you a chance to visit the largest winery in the world Milesti Mici (200km) registered in the Guinness Book of Records in 2005. It also boasts the largest collection of up to 2million bottles. This tour is done in my car. You will be able to see a waterfall a reminder of Ancient Times when Moldova was underwater, Golden Collection and Guinness certificate. Wine tasting is provided at the end of the tour. Then we will go to the monasteries located in the north-west of the country. Hincu Convent was founded in 1678. It has a nice flower garden kept in great shape by the nuns as well as lawns well-looked after and a statue of Christ. You will enjoy seeing the biggest cathedral in Moldova whose façade is completely finished, but still awaits to be painted inside. Then we will move on to Capriana monastery which was founded in 1429 and is considered the oldest in Moldova. It represents a large complex with two beautiful churches. We will see other nice churches on the way. A Must!

A Recent Review of this tour

If you want a warm and friendly guide who knows so much about Moldova - the history, the culture, the environment, the roads, etc. - then you want Valery Bradu as a guide. We just had one of the best days ever with Valry because he made sure we were entertained and involved in the tour. He went that extra mile for us and we highly recommend him.
