I had a great tour at the Monje winery. The tour was led by the sixth generation winemakers and he explained everything very well. With here and there a joke and many details. The wines were very nice to drink. I had one white wine and three red. The explanation with each wine was sometimes a bit hard. The English language of the speaker wasn't that well spoken. The cheeses were okay to eat. After that I spent some dimes in the wineshop.

Amazing wine tasting experience with a lot of different wines and cheeses. However be aware that the tour is in Spanish (not in English). I highly recommend this experience and the view of the place is stunning.
