I love love this place. Haven’t had a bad wine and the Alicante Bouchet is my favourite of all wines. The buildings are just gorgeous and the growing process here is amazing to witness.

We were not charged for the wine tasting. It was one of our favorites and sorry we ran out of time to make a second trip there. The wines were very good!
