It is not so much a winery, but a kingdom of wine.

They are so spacious that guests can drive around in a car or explore by bicycle.

The size of this warehouse can not be overstated.

Although only 35 miles of the warehouses are in use, the owners still feel it is necessary to put "street names" to prevent guests from getting lost.

The underground wine kingdom was previously a limestone mine that became the great winery in the 1960s.

When the mine closed, it became the perfect winery for the neighboring vineyard as the limestone walls retain moisture and keep the temperature cool, which are the ideal conditions for vintage red wine.

And the Milestii Mici winery produces some spectacular reds, some of which have a value of hundreds of euros.

Moldova once produced almost half of the wine produced throughout the former Soviet Union.

Its moderate climate of the Black Sea, low hills and fertile soil make it one of the best places in Europe to grow grapes.

And the country also houses the Cricova winery, which also contains an extensive network of underground tunnels.
