Mileştii Mici Wine Cellar Complex

Stretching for 250km (160 miles), of which only 120km (75 miles) are currently in use, the Mileştii Mici cellar complex in Moldova is also the largest in the world. In 2007 Mileştii Mici wine cellars were noted in Guinness World Records 2007 Yearbook, for having the largest wine collections in the world. Overall, the complex holds nearly 2 million bottles. More than 70% of the stored wines are red, 20% are white and about 10% are dessert ones. The most valuable items of this collection, worth €480 a bottle, were produced in 1973-74; they are now exported only to Japan.
