Milestii Mici Cellars

MILESTII MICI” is the oldest storehouse of the “divine liquid” – Wine. Having its particular glamour, this natural wine deposit – the largest of the world – appreciated in the lime galleries at a depth of 40-85 meters in the seventies of the last century. Over 50 km of the underground galleries are transformed into wine warehouses in the Milestii Mici Village (almost 20 km south Chisinau). Now, as many years ago, the underground kingdom still excites the visitors. The lucky guests who get into it have the rare opportunity to travel the darkened avenues and streets with rows and niches, where precious bottles are carefully laid down, where barrels are placed. Covered with the attributes of antiquity – spider web and grey dust – they attract all looks, just like a magnet. In order to make the time travel even more exciting, all those who wish are given the map of the wine depository, sealed with wax. The same map is present on the labels.

The constant annual temperature of +12… +14 C0 and the high moisture level offers favorable conditions to store the high quality wine.

The wine collection consists of over 2 million bottles. The grapes collected on the vineyards around Milestii Mici village are of special quality. The wine made out of these grapes has a rich and noble taste, which is stored then in the stone subways for many years. Cabernet”, “Cahor”, “Muscat” or “Aligote” – each of them bears the mark of the creator, his soul, energy and inspiration, though all of them are perceived as a part of the universal history of winemaking, as a part of the Moldovan culture.
