The Republic of Moldova is internationally recognized for its wine successes, but also for the records in the wine industry that bring us fame all over the world.

Mileștii Mici wineries hold the Guinness record for the largest collection of bottles in the world, with an impressive figure ranging from 1.5 to 2 million bottles of wine!

The collection is housed along 55 km of underground tunnels, at a depth of between 30 and 80 meters. Humidity and temperature are naturally kept stable in the limestone tunnels. Therefore, the collection is not only a Guinness World Record holder, but also an example of a sustainable cellar.

Equally impressive are the cellars of the Cricova state winery, 18 km north of Chisinau. At a depth of 60 meters, 120 km of tunnels, also excavated from limestone rock, house the second largest collection of bottles in Moldova (1.3 million), which includes priceless wine treasures, some dating back to the 1902.
