    Barely through the door you are asked kindly to visit the winery. After a few steps of the daylight leaves place to a darkness that leads to contemplation. Still a little further down the walls of bottles of the barrels and the slates coincided which you indicate the years of vintages. You then break the silence by expressions of amazement that you can't remember. Once reassembled the shop you attent to meet your expectations. DO NOT MISS.

    Few cellar are in free access, more reason to take a look. Very nice Humidor monolith, colored to some spot lights, it's fresh and it's nice when it's too hot outside. You have the option to do a wine tasting.

    The Manager was vulgar and moved (sexist joke from my entry in the cellar). Do not recommend!
