Moldova is renown for its wine, and Milestii Mici offers a wonderful opportunity to experience that reason first hand. At a total length of around 200 km and with nearly 2 million bottles, it rightfully boasts having the largest wine cellars in the world. I was picked up promptly at my AirBnB and ferried along with one other passenger to the winery, which is about 20 km from the Moldovan capital Chisinau. We teamed up with a guide and drove underground until we reached a location where we left the vehicles and proceeded, along with a dozen or so others, on a 20-30 minute walk through the cellar. NOTE: Bring a jacket. It gets chilly underground. The extravagant wine enthusiast can even rent a spot in the cellar in which to store those more precious bottles. At the end of the tour, we were led to a tasting room, given three generous jugs of different wines to try, accompanied by some tasty savory snacks and serenaded by musicians. The whole thing was very convivial and was a perfect introduction to the Moldovan wine scene.
My only regret is that I can't seem to find their wine here in the US.

I really enjoyed my tour. The driver did not introduce himself or speak English so could not tell me about Moldova. I only knew I had the right car because it had Best Moldova on it. In the winery we had an English speaking guide,

Our driver, Viktor, picked us up at our hotel in a clearly marked van. There had been some snowfall the night before and it was snowing pretty heavily on our trip to the winery, but Viktor got us there safely. Once we got to the winery, a tour guide from the Winery got in the vehicle with us and gave us the tour, in English. We were able to get out of the vehicle and take pictures on a couple occasions and also walked through some parts of the Winery. We had a sampling of three wines, a white, red and port plenty of wine for three people. It was also served in crackers, cheese, dried fruit, nuts. Great tour. Small gift shop on site.

The wine tasting was the best part. Driving through the underground streets was unique but too fast.

The Winery is amazing. It is quite an experience going to wine cellar with a car. The tour guide was very informative. The lunch itself was excellent. We got a chance to taste 3 different wines and shared lots of fun with our group members.
