Bodega El Fabulista, Laguardia

4.2
#2 of 9 in Wineries in Laguardia
Delve into a cave-like underground winery at Bodega El Fabulista. Located under the home of Félix María de Samaniego, a famous 19th-century writer of fables, this winery's bottles all have fable-related themes. See where the grapes arrive by tractor, are tipped into a concrete vat, and then are mashed by foot like in ancient times. Descend the steep, narrow stairs to the cellars below the town, and explore the cool tunnels where the wine is fermented and aged. Enter a decorated tunnel where you can enjoy a tasting with your guide, paired with explanations on the proper ways to taste and appreciate wine. Wine is sold in the cellar as well. Guided tours are available in English, but you must book in advance. Add Bodega El Fabulista and other attractions to your Laguardia trip itinerary using our Laguardia trip maker site .

  • Highly recommended experience. We went with a guided tour, tasting of two wines from the cellar and a representation of the Fables by Samaniego for a very affordable price. Winery owner explained the entire process of making the wine in a very entertaining way so that you understand everything.

  • Highly recommended Winery to visit. In the Centre of the village. You can choose the visit with tasting of wine and cheese which are €11 or only wine that is €7. The wine is very well explained. Very good choice if you're going to Laguardia.

  • We were ten people with children so that they would see a little wine process. An explanation of the House, a quick process and a tasting of their wines (so then buy) was everything. For production reasons we could not see the different rooms, as if we did at other wineries, but the price did not cease to be the same. It isn't bad but there are many better

  • Excellent original winery with so much history. The tour was fantastic and is highly recommended.
  • Great tour through a relatively small win ery and excellent wines!
  • Fun authentic visit. Wine not very good though
  • worth the visit.
  • We Just visited it and we loved the guide that has accompanied us and showed the charm of a winery in the heart of the walls of Laguardia. A special place that you don't have to lose if you want to escape from the "more of the same". It Is more beautiful to taste wines with the woman of a great fabulist!!!
