Good winery with a very good and informative guide. Tresa is a nice and patient guide and taught us lots of things about wine. It's good for children as they serve non alcoholic liquors while adults taste wine.

Great bodega to visit off the main stream just south of Cordoba. The guide was very gentle and knowlegeable of the history and the methodology to produce those fine wines. And of course we had a great time tasting their very unique PX.
