The tunnels themselves date back to the 15th century, when the property was used as a limestone quarry to build Chisinau and the surrounding towns.

After WWII the network of tunnels provided the perfect climate to age Cricova’s wines. Every passageway gets its name from the wine that is stored there.

Cricova Winery and Cellar is one of few in the world that produces sparkling wine in accordance with the classical French method of mixing only the best grapes from different vineyards, a practice started centuries ago by the Monk Dom Pierre Perignon.
