Overview

Governor Mimi was a lawyer as well as a great admirer of wine. He studied viticulture and winemaking in France, in Montpellier, from where he brought the palace project, later built in Bulboaca village, as well as the grape variety - Aligote. His wines have enjoyed enormous success and were exported even in the most distant countries of the world.

The castle was the first building in the country, built of reinforced concrete, which was a rarity in those days, and its basement housed 300,000 liters of wine stored in oak barrels. Over the years, the building has acquired extensions and beauty was spoiled by thick layers of plaster. After nearly 100 years, Mimi's castle became the property of one family, which in 2010 had begun the reconstruction of the winery, and after the castle, in order to reestablish as much as possible the authenticity and originality of the building. All the works, as well as 123 years ago, were conducted by the Italian architect.

Currently, "Castel of Mimi" is a multifunctional complex in which represents winery, hotel with 22 rooms, 7 houses of "chalet" type, the museum, the art gallery for young artists, the conference hall and banquet halls for different events. Two tasting rooms and 6 rooms in the basement make an ideal atmosphere to taste the wines «Castel Mimi» and unique dishes from the restaurant in the complex.
