You can ride the labyrinths of the underground storage in a car. Even more interesting is to walk through the streets of “Cabernet”, “Aligote”, “Feteasca”, see the cathedral ceiling from the shell rock, huge oak barrels exuding wondrous wine aroma, ancient lanterns, and natural springs bursting through from the depths of the mountain rock.
