Lapostolle Clos Apalta, Santa Cruz

4.5
#2 of 9 in Wineries in Santa Cruz
Sample a classic regional wine at Lapostolle Clos Apalta, a highly regarded estate with an array of attractive vineyards. The modernist architecture of the main building adds a cool, contemporary feel to the experience, while the rolling vineyards, neatly ordered on the hilly landscape, offer plentiful vistas and photo opportunities. Hand-harvested at night, the grapes are de-stemmed before fermenting in 21 small vats, where they remain for two years before bottling. Talk to the knowledgeable staff about winemaking heritage in the area and the history of the winery, and taste the wine before picking up a bottle or two to take away with you. Our Santa Cruz itinerary planner makes visiting Lapostolle Clos Apalta and other Santa Cruz attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    Vineyard tour is interesting, since in this precinct is where they make their wine Clos Apalta icon, called attention to prove it, since they have it not in all the vineyards tasting, I think that's why the high price of the tour. Facilities have great detail, used oak barrels for fermentation, he always saw steel. Our guide, Mitzi, again charm, already knew it another vineyard, everything explained so clearly and accurately.

    We were very well received in Lapostolle Clos Apalta tour. We did the tour of the receiving rooms of the grapes, fermentation, ageing and finally we did the tasting. All very well maintained, a very nice visual and excellent wines. Recommend.

    Excellent our tour alongside Mitzi our guide, although it might seem expensive, worth... a vineyard concerned by the product, good architecture... They explain you everything... Rarely have the opportunity to taste wines icon, and here the tour, paid... Perhaps I miss a small pairing, but it compensates with the full experience

    Very impressive facility with a great tour. Unlike a lot of wineries in the valley, this one is set off from the main road, giving it a more secluded feel.

Where to stay in Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz has become known for providing a glimpse into the country's agricultural heritage, though not at the expense of development. As such, you'll find a good mix of accommodations around the main town and its rural outskirts. Refined hotels and boutique guesthouses dominate the main urban area, along with simpler fare for more budget-conscious travelers located on side streets. Heading out of town, a good number of converted farm buildings and ranches offer characterful lodgings amidst the region's attractive scenery.
