TOURS AND WINE TASTING

PURCARI CELLARS

This is where it all began. Founded in 1827, Purcari Cellars are a refined treasure.

Vintage wines from 1984, the Queen Elizabeth II Collection dating from 1947 (labeled in English – innovative for their time), and several other jewels highlight the cellars.

The historic fingerprints left by the monks that built cross-shaped cellars, and their elaborate rituals blessing the wine also come alive.

In Purcari cellars you will find among the meticulously-arranged array of French barriques, the matured and perfected diamonds of Purcari – Negru de Purcari, Rosu de Purcari, and Alb de Purcari.

There are private storage areas dedicated to the wine collections of our friends, and we would be overjoyed to have you share your collection with us, and allow Purcari to be part of your personal treasure!

In the cellars of Purcari you can admire over 100 sections where can be kept more than 8,000 bottles of wine being available to all wine lovers. The sections are given in rent, so those interested in collecting wines, are able to keep them in time and for another generation.
