Proof Of Large

 This certificate is from the Guinness Book certifying that the wine cellar is the largest in the world, as of 2007.  It has over a million and a half bottles in it.  The rest of the pictures in this set are of some of the bottles.  The little "houses" are labeled with the year of harvest, the year of bottling, the type, and the number of bottles in that particular set.  All the bottles were laid down after 1968, when the Soviet Union collectivized wine making in Moldova and concentrated it at Milestii Mici.  Milestii Mici is still state owned, but there are many other wineries in Moldova now.

Yes, actually. The homemade wine around here, though.... not so much.
