Welcome to Moldova

Old Orhei and Branesti cellar with 3 types of wine tasting


The excursion will start with visiting one of the most remarkable monuments of the dim and distant past - Old Orhei (wiki https://goo.gl/B28X5v). On the eastern outskirts of the fully stocked wood, In a valley formed by cliffed rocky banks of the river Reut, at the Cape Pestere ("cave"), it was the city - Old Orhei.

About the history of this place speak not only the legends. During 20 years there had been found more than 200 old structures: handicraft workshops, storage rooms, cellars, houses, tools, coins and many others. But as it turned out, Old Orhei is not the most ancient settlement that existed in that area.

Old Orhei also is famous for the cave monasteries located here.

The tourists who come to enjoy the beauties of this wonderful place, necessarily visit the cave monastery, called „Pestere”.

It is located 60 m above the river and offers unseen views of the entire historical complex.

After visiting Old Orhei, the tourists are heading to the Branesti Cellars - a true underground factory of quality wines.

''Branesti Cellars'' Winery was founded in 1996 in Branesti village, Orhei district and is located 48 km far from Chisinau. The factory covers a distance of 75 km at a depth of 60 m below ground.

An excursion here gives you the opportunity to taste homemade red and white wines, sparkling wines and delicious traditional dishes.

Not so far from the cellars is the tourist complex "Stone Age" - a complex network of underground galleries where the complex's restaurant is located. In the near future there will be organized a new underground hotel. The first of its kind in the Republic of Moldova.
