The "Wooden Wine Cellar 1777" is a reconstruction of the oldest wineries in 1777 which was maintained until 1985.
The 1777 Wine Cellar Museum in Valea Calugărească, department of the Prahova County Museum of History and Archaeology, was inaugurated on May 18, 2013 and recreates the oldest peasant construction made of wood in the Prahova County. It is one of the most representative buildings from the wine-growing areas of Wallachia and it was built in 1777 and survived until 1985. Its permanent exhibition brings into the publics’ attention the practice of viticulture and winery but also of other activities and traditional crafts that is represented by the re-enactment of a carpentry workshop with a work bench and tools needed for the processing of wood. From the original heritage of the museum we can see a few pieces from the end of the 19th century, a big press, a wine pump made in Germany, a wooden tub used to squash grapes and also a collection of wine bottles and labels. In the attic is displayed a collection of traditional costumes, fabrics, icons all bearing the motif of the grapevine and which bears the name “The Offshoot of life”.
