For wine lovers this is a must. This place have a good ambiance, super friendly staff and impressive selection of wines.

The place is quite small, but... More

We absolutely loved Carpe Diem, it was our favorite 'discovery' of our time in Chisinau. Superb, helpful and friendly staff with a real love of both wine and life. We did an extended casual tasting, and visited for another shorter tasting and just to chat to the staff about other things to do in Moldova. Highly recommended.

They were all very interesting and surprising! The prices are very reasonable, the selection of wines is wide and the advices are good !! Very... More

I had an hour to kill alone before a long bus journey and found myself here. What a great choice! It was so great to taste a variety of Moldovan wines and talk about Moldovan wine with the bartender/sommelier (?) something which we very rarely even hear about in Australia. He was incredibly friendly and authentic and happy to converse... More

When you enter the door of Carpe Diem you are met in a great way, you feel that you are taken care of by the staff. The staff knows a lot about the wine of Moldova and gives you a good insight on what you should taste. Wonderful experience!!

Moldova is a small country but with a big heart and with incredible wines that are not known in the western european country, If you are in Chisinau take a wine tasting @Carpe Diem and you'll love this country even more.

Small wine bar not far from the city centre with a comprehensive collection of local wines. Even though the number of open bottles for tasting is low (2 whites, 2 reds) the quality is good. Pleasant atmosphere with a knowledgeble bartender who can offer valuable info for those who want to discover the local wine market.
