  • We loved our visit to the vineyard... you can go there without a reservation... Free visit... we pay for tasting, 5000ll for 3 wines, 10,000ll for 4 miyenne range wines and 15000llfor 4 more upscale wines.

  • I’m not sure what was more impressive - the collection of amazing wines in the labyrinth of tunnels below the winery OR how drunk we got during a tasting! Amazing history as the tunnels have been used for centuries and for different purposes. Super friendly staff and great show room to take a few bottles home with you
  • A beautiful little winery. The tunnels have an interesting story behind them.
