  • Architecture doesn't compliment area in my opinion. Also very snooty place won't even let you in to take a photo Expensive tourist rip off.
  • Great tour with very informative video on wine production. It’s worth the visit just to see the Frank Gehry hotel. The wines are good, but you will find better value wines at less famous wineries.
  • Great place for wine testing , unique architecture, friendly and knowledgeable personnel. Highly recommend
  • One of the best, most educational, wines tours I have been on (out of many!).The location is gorgeous, for starters! The tour lasts about an hour and is supplemented by high quality video presentations. There was a tasting of both a white and a crianza red wine. The gift shop connected to the tasting room had neat souvenirs and amazing wines by the glass. For instance, there was a 2010 reserva with a 98 point rating for 8 Euros per glass. Definitely recommend!
  • Amazing setting and architecture. We did the bodega tour. It was very informative although I did find it a little corporate and polished for my liking. But definitely worth a visit.
