Day 1: Begin your adventure at the first, and the best, Wine Bar in Chisinau, Carpe Diem, and enjoy a relaxing evening with great people and wines. You will stay overnight in Chisinau.
Day 2: This morning you will explore Chisinau, the capital and soul of the Republic of Moldova. You will visit the Central Market and soak up the vibes of the city and chat with some of the local vendors. This huge open-air market has been the scene of lively haggling for fruit, vegetables, fish an dairy products since 1825. After lunch you will head to Moldova's biggest forest, Codri, to visit Poiana Winery whose philosophy is to harness and preserve the unique natural resources of the secular area in which it is located. Here the vines are still cultivated in the traditional way and the unique landscape gives birth to legends.
The valley is called the "Buddha Valley" and here you can enjoy a yoga retreat or take a walk around the lakes or through the vineyards.
Dinner will be served at the terrace opening an amazing view on the surroundings and you will stay overnight at Poiana Winery.
Day 3: Today you will head to the south of Moldova and enjoy a day of wine and outdoor activities. You visit the small family owned winery of Et cetera where, for more than a decade, three generations of the Luchianov Family have taken care of the land, which pays back with great harvests. Here you will be greeted and guided by the winemaker and enjoy your lunch in a relaxing atmosphere with the best wines in the heart of the vineyards.
This afternoon you can either bike or hike through the vineyards to get to a Purcari Cellars founded in 1827. Nestled in the countryside unfurling between the Dniester River and the Black Sea, the estate, built in the style of a French chateau, lets you experience the atmosphere of calm and luxury and discover the innermost secrets of the creation of the legendary Purcari wines. Guided by an artist, treat yourself with a wine art class to capture the view and the unique emotions of the place.
