Wine Tasting in Moldova?

by Mango »

A friend, a big wine afficionado, will be visiting Moldova and wants to do a wine-tasting itinerary while there. Does anyone know if this can be done and what's the best source of info for Moldovian wines? Thanks

All I know about Moldova is that it was named the unhappiest country in the world by Eric Weiner in his book "The Geography of Bliss" . A great read by the way. Who knew that Moldova even had a wine region!

There were decades when all you could get was Moldovan wine behind the Iron Curtain. I'm still pulling a sourpuss face at the memories from Prague in 1968 for example, and still now, if you're in, say, Prague or Bratislava in a cheap student hang wanting a glass of wine with your pizza, chances are it will be Moldovan, although the quality seems to have improved somewhat, as I noticed on my last visit a couple of years ago. I'm sure they now make good stuff, too.
