The visit is very good, the host knows how to explain in detail the history and process of the wine. What is lacking is lunch. The starter is excellent, with local cheeses and sausages of excellent quality. The problem is the main course. A dish called "Papa de Tomatos" was served in large quantities (and I personally thought it was just OK). My suggestion is to replace this dish with pasta (in smaller quantities) and maybe a dessert. As for wine, it's wonderful.

The visit of the small castle was nice although it would have been more complete with a small tour of the vineyard. The lunch at the end of the visit is not to be missed for the quality and genuineness of the local dishes offered. To report the courtesy and availability of our local guide. Excellent wine tasting.

A great tour. Very informative and not a sales event. We felt very comfortable and welcome and learned a lot. The people were incredibly friendly and welcoming.
