Prospects, streets… and only the names they have are unusual: Cabernet, Riesling, Feteasca, Aligote, Sauvignon… to each street it corresponds the name of the wine that is kept in the adjacent niches.

Cricova cellars shelter a remarkable collection of wines – Oenoteca. Here, as in an intern gestation, it was collected a myriad of historic wines, wines with personality, as there is collected a lot of information in a bank of data with a scientific goal or for being experienced, deciphered, enjoyed by the experts.
