There are few wineries in the world that still produce sparkling wines according to the traditional Champenoise method and Cricova is one of them. During this tour you will explore its endless galleries, remarkable wine collection, a winemaking museum and even the underground church. After learning the remuage and degorgement process, you will have the rare opportunity to taste few types of white, rose and red sparkling wines.

Cricova is a unique underground complex that got renowned for both its huge labyrinths and excellent wines. For the last 60 years it creates the sparkling wine by the method of the famous monk Dom Pierre Perignon, which requires secondary fermentation in the glass and subsequent cuvée ageing. The wine maturation is done fully in the underground cellars, boasting 120 km in total length. Here, endless lines of stands are holding the bottles at a certain angle, waiting to be shaken every day, so they could become crystal clear. Currently Cricova is home to 1.3 mln bottles and 640 types of wine. The oldest wine in the collection and the only one of its kind in the world is the wine „Easter Jerusalem”, produced in just one batch in 1902. After the guided tour you will be invited in one of their tasting halls for a memorable sparkling wine tasting. It is here where the sommelier will tell you about the story of the bubbles in your glass.
