I was hoping this was more eventful. It was basically just a wine cellar with a ton of wine for sale. No wine tasting, no tour. It was really not worth it.
Signage was poor and it was hard to find but an excellent attraction. Don't forget to sneak down the small tunnels away from the wine cellar. very eire. be careful as the floors are slippery
We happened to see this advertised in a magazine and enjoyed our short visit. It is a little difficult to find but the locals will help. I just wish we weren't flying the next day and only had a carry on. We would have loved to take a few bottles with us.
Wasn't really looking forward to anything much, but was pleasantly surprised. It really is a wine cellar: deep, damp, dark and moldy. The cellar is impressive and you can find different barrels of wine: huge, small, old and very very old. There was one that dates back to 1472. Now THAT's really cool. We took about a good twenty minutes... More
Certainly worth seeking out if you're a wine lover or just like something different. A cellar within the Hospital grounds seems forward thinking to me, but these historic cellars offer an interesting off the beaten track diversion as you wander around the city. not the easiest place to find but with help from a local we found it quickly.

I had to ask three people to get there and when I finally got there it was their "siesta time" and I had to come back after 1.30 p.m. So, I marked my way out: First find the hospital, which is not hard to do by looking at a map. It looks like a church from outside, very pretty building.... More
This was an excellent visit and well worth it. Yes it's hard to find, but our local friend knew where it was, so that helped. It's mainly a winery for the locals. There's a bit of history, the world's oldest wine is located here in a barrel that has not fermented. It's free to visit and there's a wine shop... More
Just a short walk from the city center, a bit of history with a nice little wine shop. I'm not sure why others found the cellar difficult to find. Simply walk around to the back of the hospital and there is a large sign.
This was a bit challenging to find, as it's not well signed. You'll need a map. Visiting and seeing the giant barrels is quite interesting. You can even smell the wine in the air evaporating through the wood. This made us very much in the mood to do some tasting, but the tastings only happen once a week, on Saturday... More
After wandering around the hospital grounds several times, we finally managed to find the cellar door. It's free to visit. We enjoyed looking at the old wine barrels. There is no English translation but it's still an interesting sight to visit.
