Castel MIMI Winery is the largest (private) architectural restoration project in the history of Republic of Moldova. This historic estate was founded in 1893 by the last Governor of Bessarabia, Constantin Mimi.
A restoration project that was planned to be finished in 2 years is now in its 6th year and counting. Even though there was a big opening ceremony on 17th of September 2016, there is still a lot of work to be done. According to the current schedule it is expected that by the end of Summer 2017 everything will be finished. Some of the amenities will include a hotel with a big open-air swimming pool, a wine SPA, a big playground for children, a herbs garden, etc.
