Sept 13, 2009: Wine Cellar

Not just any old wine Cellar, the world's largest wine Cellar, verified by Guinness.
20 miles from the capitol of Moldova, the State Enterprise Quality Wines Industrial Complex “Milestii Mici”, has a wine Cellar that stretches over 200km. But only 55km are in use so far, holding over 2 million bottles.



Moldova has been making wine for 5000 years. They've also been mining limestone for buildings, all over Europe, for centuries. In 1969 the government starting bringing the wine from all the vintners to this central location at the mines, to be tested, evaluated, stored in huge Oak casks, the bottled for shipment all over the world.

Quote:
In the "Golden Collection" Milestii Mici the wines are protected as babies, educated as difficult adolescents. Here come only the best wines, reaching special, delicious tastes. After several years of storage in the collection the wines acquire rich bouquets and aromatic notes – vanilla, cherries, blackberries, prunes and even astringent cardamom.

The local microclimate (constant temperature and humidity) beneficially acts on their gustatory special features. The visitors of the site should know that good collection wines in Europe became the same attribute of success as the classical objects of luxury. One could even rent a place in our collection, where to store and to mature the own wines.
Hmmm, sounds like communism. FREE THE GRAPES!

Just once....

I am an extremely causal wine drinker but just once I would like to try something extraordinary. Never really thought about that until reading this entry....
