Photographer's Note

An artwork in the underground limestone quarry caves at Cricova, now used to store wine at a constant 12c summer or winter. Red wine is made from the dark purple grapes depicted here. Their claret and Merlot was not bad at all. The sparkling wine in a Champagne style was equally good. I was not fussed on the Rose. Not sweet enough and not enough body. But perhaps I have been spoiled because the previous Rose red wine I tried was top quality Portuguese. Cricova town is 15 km north of Chisinau and dates from 1431. It has about 10,000 people.
