The year of 1953 is the year of foundation of the unique, majestic "Cricova" wine city, known not only in Moldova, but widely abroad. Before the foundation, Cricova underground was a place where sawed stone of shell-rock was mined and used as a building material.The ancestor of wine production, Mr. Piotr Ungureanu and others, discovered a microclimate, ideal for dry and sparkling wines storage. A constant temperature of 10-14 C and high level of humidity of 95-98% always held. After the clearing of sawed stone waste and some insignificant works on deepening, communication and asphaltation, fine wine materials of 50 thousand decalitres annually has been made here.
