"Everyone knows the world's classic wine regions: Tuscany, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Rioja, Napa Valley", writes the American news agency CNN in their web site and continue: "But not all the world's best wine regions have yet been discovered.In fact, some of the finest wine is being made in places you might never even have heard of."
One of the great wine producers on CNN´s list is Moldova. Here´s what the American the wine tasters write about "the most vineyard-dense country in the world":

Though winemaking in Moldova dates back more than 5,000 years, Moldovan wine -- and Moldova in general -- has flown almost completely under the radar.

Sandwiched between Romania and Ukraine, the tiny country's wines are a delight, from indigenous whites like rara neagra and plavai to its crisp, fruity sauvignon blancs and chardonnays.

You'll even find excellent reds in mild, dry southern Moldova: robust, earthy saperavis, as well as elegant cabernets, gamays and pinot noir.

Interestingly, almost a quarter of all Moldovans are winemakers -- it's the most vineyard-dense country in the world.

The country is also home to the world's largest wine cellar, Milestii Mici, which has more than two million bottles.

Visit: Cricova winery produces velvety, medium-bodied Orasul Subteran Rara Neagra, made exclusively with indigenous Moldovan grapes.
