    We visited the winery and taste us a lot of wines, all of excellent quality and vinified under concepts and philosophies very clear, in addition, the environment is bright and 30 metres has a restaurant of excellence.

    It is a very beautiful Winery and the tour is quite interesting, especially the Loreto Guide, which is super without being didactic massante. The tasting was very good and we had the opportunity to taste 5 types of wines. Interesting also the location of "rest of barrels" to fall asleep to the sound of Gregorian chants. Very cool.

    The wine tour was pretty cool, with good guide, as well as a great wine tasting. Already the restaurant let us down with abusive prices, dishes that have left to be desired and below average service. Try to push an extremely sophisticated wine list, composed mostly by old vintages and obviously expensive.

    A nice wine tasting tour. Just like any other however the guide was chatty and explained the whole process pretty well. You learn a bit about wine tasting, and they make pretty good wines, which are mostly exported to the US and Europe. The whole structure that houses the storage, wine tasting room etc is constructed based on feng shui. Worth a visit

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.
