    lots of shops: Wine

    by Lion_Beat Written Aug 27, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Realy good quality wine can be found in wine shops in Moldova.
    If you are an expert you should now that already, if you are just a wine lover you will appreciate the wines, if you are a newbe just take my word for!

    What to buy: From the big range of wines in Moldova I would reccomend you:
    - Cabernet-Souvignon (from lots of producers)
    - Ialoveni (it's a Heres and can be found only at Ialoveni store and at factory - best heres in the world)
    - Cricova Champagne
    - Bucket Moldavii (desert wine)
    - Aligote

    What to pay: The prices are realy low. Dont be surprised to pay less then 1 dollar for the best wine you ever tryed... :) The general price range is 0,5 - 5 dollars for a regular bottle of wine.
    But you should keep in mind that YOU have to buy it from an original wine store!!!

    When in Moldova you may visit only wine cellars and fallow wines' tastes.:) One of the most popular is Cricova. The best way to buy or taste it is to go to their Wine Producing Factory which is famous in the whole world for its unique underground labyrinths (probably the biggest in the world!). The Wine Producing Factory “Cricova” is by all means an extraordinary undeground complex with a huge production capacity. Morover, now it is declared also to be an object of national patrimony, under the direct state’s and UNESCO protection.In the year of 2002 “Cricova” had the honour to be granted the supreme state award - «The Order of Republic», as a sign of acknowledgement of its remarkable contribution to the development of the Moldovian economy and for its special accomplishments in the field of the wine production industry.

    If you net feel like visitng Crivova you may buy wines at their shop, just in the center of Chisinau.

    Cricova: Moldavian wines & spirits

    by josephescu Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There’s not much shopping to do in Chisinau, except for the Moldavian spirits - wines, brandy and champagne. Try all famous brands, but don’t miss the Cricova. They have a shop on the main commercial street on the right as you go towards Unirii square.

    Street Market: Fresh Moldvoan

    by flynboxes Written Jan 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a neat little outdoor market where you can find the fruits of the local fields. As of this writing a more modern enclosed market place is underconstruction. It's a great place to mingle with the local folks

    What to buy: Wine and Conac or the fresh produce

    What to pay: Wine in the local grocery stores costs a couple of bucks

    Bucuria: Famous Moldovan Chocolates

    by lenoreva Written Mar 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inesa told us this was her favorite shop several times during our busride from Iasj to Chisinau. They mostly sell chocolates (bomboane) and candy, but you can also get soft drinks and bottled water.

    What to buy: Well, it is a bit difficult to know what to get when you don't speak the language. We just used the trial and error method the first time we were there, pointing at different ones, and buying just a couple of each to try them out. Then we met Inesa (pure coincidence!) and she pointed out some good ones, including one I especially liked called "Macul Rosu".

    What to pay: Not that expensive. Small change really.
