These unique tunnels carved in limestone have been in Cricova since 15-th century when they were dug out by hands to build Moldova’s capital city - Chisinau. These tunnels were converted into a large subterranean complex of wine roads, as deep as 100 meters in Post-Soviet occupation of Moldova. The porosity of the limestone creates a perfect environment to store wines, where the temperature is about 12 degrees Celsius (about 53 Farenheit) all year round.

During Cricova winery tour you will witness first-hand the unique process of making Champagne as they call it or Sparkling Wine - Cricova is one of the few wineries in the world that produce sparkling wines according to the traditional Champenoise method! You will be shown the endless lines of pupitres (or also called simply racks) holding the bottles at a 45 degree angle. Once a day a team of 4 women shake tens of thousands of bottles a few degrees in such way that the angle gradually increases. You will also see the bottling station, where you can witness the process of disgorgement - the sediment being frozen and then removed from the cap and will learn how Champagne is made in its traditional method - very different from still wine. These days Cricova has several impressive presidential style wine tasting rooms and some more traditional ones decorated with typical Moldovian artefacts and national instruments, which you will be able to see yourself on a tour to Cricova cellars
