Wine Tasting in Moldova?

by kringenwally »

Who knew that Moldova even had a wine region!

There were decades when all you could get was Moldovan wine behind the Iron Curtain. I'm still pulling a sourpuss face at the memories from Prague in 1968 for example, and still now, if you're in, say, Prague or Bratislava in a cheap student hang wanting a glass of wine with your pizza, chances are it will be Moldovan, although the quality seems to have improved somewhat, as I noticed on my last visit a couple of years ago. I'm sure they now make good stuff, too.

All I know about Moldova is that it was named the unhappiest country in the world by Eric Weiner in his book "The Geography of Bliss" . A great read by the way. Who knew that Moldova even had a wine region!

A friend, a big wine afficionado, will be visiting Moldova and wants to do a wine-tasting itinerary while there. Does anyone know if this can be done and what's the best source of info for Moldovian wines? Thanks

How did you get to the Cricova winery?  It doesn't look like it's easy to get there by bus from Chi?in?u.  I don't want to hire a private driver or taxi/Uber at all so didn't know if the winery actually had buses from town to there at all?  I would rather get there and do the tour myself than with an all day tour company...

One tip, just ask the natives if they have some home home-made wine! Usually it's much better than the wine offered in wineries and markets
