Milestii Mici is a small settlement, located 20 km south of Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. It might not look like much , but it sits atop the greatest wine cellar in all of Europe.
Milestii Mici has become internationally famous for its impressive wine collection, known as the Golden Collection. It has been acknowledged by Guinness Book of Records as the biggest wine collection in Europe. The cellars of Milestii Mici hide approximately 2 million bottles of wine, of which 1,5 million are collection wines.
The cellar complex under Milestii Mici is also the biggest one in Europe, stretching over 250km. At this point only 120 km are in use, so thereâ€™s enough room for more wine. The most expensive bottle of wine in the cellars of Milestii Mici is worth 480 euros.
I canâ€™t imagine how anyone can find their way around this giant catacombs, let alone a specific bottle of wine.
