Very interesting visit. Tania warm and engaging, knowledgeable and kind. Tasty wines in compact, homely family business. Learned a lot about the land, the grapes, the barrels and the family. Highly recommended.

11 of us came here together and all found the tour very interesting and enjoyable. The wines are delicious, particularly the reds and the tapas were an added treat. This is really good value for money. We bought four bottles to take home.
