Château Vartely

Wine in Moldova

This up-and-coming winery, established in 2008, offers not just very good whites and reds, but excellent food and cosy accommodation (rooms from €83) in one of 12 pretty wooden bungalows, just 50km north of Chişinău. Tours and tastings here are more intimate affairs than at the big wineries and are led by knowledgeable guides who speak great English. Reserve ahead.
