The Biggest Wine Cellar in the World!

Posted by AdrianSmith, Aug 21, 2014.

Hey all!


I just published a new article on my blog that goes into a little depth about the largest wine cellar and wine collection in the world. Tunnels are over 100 miles long, although only 34 miles are used. At a depth of 80 meters underground there are nearly 2 million bottles stored in this collection!

Enjoy! :)

Looks fascinating  although I don't think I have ever had a Moldovan wine

I have a bottle of Romanian Merlot from 1989 in my cellar.. can't say I'm too optimistic. :P

Certainly won't come anywhere close to what we are used to.

My brother-in-law gave me a bottle of Moldovan a few years ago (it was given to him by a Russian co-worker, BiL doesn't drink wine).   It was dreadful.

DV, what kind of wine, and what kind of issues with it?

Have not, to my knowledge, had any Moldovan wine. So unfortunately this massive bunker complex, that happens to house wine at the moment, isn't as interesting as it might otherwise be. Probably my loss.

Am I wrong in assuming, AS, that you haven't actually visited the place?

It was red and I'll have to think hard on the variety.  It certainly wasn't French.  It was sweet and reminded me of McGuigan's Black Label or something like that.  I couldn't drink it.  I believe Moldova has some very decent wine though.  Any of the really good stuff probably doesn't get too far (like South Africa and many places, New Zealand..)
