    We love visiting the Valley of the vineyards to enjoy the view and visit the wineries. Is the perfect place for a romantic stroll.

    Beautiful and fun to wine lovers. Come a long way in recent years, especially in relation to the reception and service to tourists. Also an important evolution in the quality of the wines. I recommend a lot and I always come back.
