Bodega El Fabulista, Laguardia

4.3
#1 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 .

  • As Winery to visit is very pretty by the drafts and the layout. The explanations are quite extensive, so great if you're interested. It is a special cellar which defends its model, what is worth. The wines are not of my taste, however I recommend visiting the winery

  • The winery we visited on the recommendation of a friend. The reservation made it itself tomorrow, so it very well and the price (7€) Super! The visit lasted 1 h - 1 h 30' in which you're aware of what supposed to be a small Winery, their pros and cons and understand the philosophy of the fabulist. A winery 100% recommended to learn more history of the wines of this area and in particular from Laguardia. Throughout the visit (Guide, Winery, explanations, wine tasting) 10.
