We tried the fortifieds but did not think they were up to the standard of the other 12 wineries we visited over 3 day period. Disappointed on the service we received. We felt we were not welcomed.

Good small winery, offering some interesting variations on their offerings compared to the usual local wines! A great place to also try some olive oil! Enjoy
