Chateau Migdal - First Hall

 Chateau Migdal, also known as Chateau Cojusna, is an independent modern winery about ten miles outside of Chisinau.  They export mainly to China, the former Soviet republics, and Africa.  We went on a tour last Saturday.  Our tour guide was not a regular employee, as they have no English speaking guides.  She was a French teacher from the nearby school.  This means our tour wasn't nearly as insightful or in depth as it could have been, but it was still fun. 

There are huge wine aging vats, ceramic lined, in the front cellar hallway.  They're used to age whites and other wines that aren't oaked.

Lots of pretty ironwork throughout the complex.

And, of course, collections of wines in cubbies.
