Didn't do an organized tour, decided instead to hit up the tasting bar. Asked those working their what their favourite wines were, what you can't get elsewhere and ordered some bread, cheese and meat. It made for a fantastic meal and the employees provided some excellent info on the winery and the wines themselves.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to reschedule. The The business was well set up for tours and the tasting was well run. We stayed and lingered in the café with tapas and had a few more glasses of wine. All in all a really great place to visit in this region.

A group of us took an evening tour of the vineyard. This was the first time I had taken such a tour in a European vineyard so was not sure what to expect. The guides were really nice, with excellent English and a good sense of humor. The tour we took lasted around 1.5hrs, seeing some of the older features... More

The explanations were clear and interesting, both verbal and video. The tour covered vineyard to bottle and a fascinating history.

We had an enjoyable time and our tour guide was friendly, informative and did a great job all around. We learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the views, the parts that let me down were the fact that we were in such a large group, so the tour didn't feel as personal as I would have liked and the wine...

Superb place to stop for a couple of hours to take in this old winery and to see the incredible adjoining hotel (good luck getting a room) designed by Frank Gehry. You will have a wonderful time!!!

The wine city is amazing for its luxury hotel designed by Frank Geary who also designed the Bilbao Guggenheim, and there are definite similarities. The wine tour covers the very neat vineyards, cellars and a wine tasting. The tour can be arranged in English but only twice a day so booking is recommended.
