Overview

The tour visits the country’s capital, villages and main historic sites, and explores its winemaking tradition, in a short but intriguing week that can’t avoid contemporary geopolitics.

On this short trip basing ourselves in Chisinau, we will take in some of the most important historical sites including a 13th century cave monastery at Orheiul Vechi. Visit the fascinating breakaway republic of Transnistria with its capital Tiraspol which has a distinctly Soviet feel. The focus of the tour however is to explore the culture of Moldova through the medium of its excellent wine and cuisine.

Hearty lunches are included from Days 2 – 5 leaving the evenings at leisure for you to explore independently and maybe take in a bar or two. Moldova is the 11th largest wine producing nation in Europe and the history of wine-making stretches back some 5000 years. We explore the astonishing and vast underground wine cellars of Cricova contrasting with smaller wineries with of course opportunities to sample excellent local wines.

For those seeking knowledge of ancient viticulture, combined with history and a culinary adventure in a little known land, then this short tour should be high on your list.
