    The Winery is huge and the tasting of two wines was correct. The problem: 50 people at the same time divided into two groups. Prevents you stop you to ask or see details because we can not delay us to not get together with the other group.

    Interesting visit where you can see the winery under the castle of Peñafiel, and explain the entire process of wine production. The final tasting is all very well, includes new Protos 27. The audio-visual starting with too much self-aggrandizement, taking into account that pay to see it.

    The visit lasts 1:30 hours, but moves very fast and pleasant, our guide primitive Mademoiselle, incredible what he knows and as well that communicates it, ultimately a tasting a couple of wines, verdejo and Protos27 and gift Cup, 10 euros, not bad for the times that run.

  • Lovely bodega! Our tour guide Raquel did a fantastic job explaining the wine process and showing us Protos. As the tour continues you really get a sense of the effort that goes into making a great tasting wine.
  • Good wines, beautiful winery and friendly staff.
  • Visit more than recommended. The Winery is spectacular. Stroll through its long underground corridors full of barrels when you know that you are inside the mountain below the Castle, it is a unique experience. And well that it explain everything: its history, its way of working, etc. And for sale in the tasting of two wines that do in the end, teach you how it is to drink a wine and enjoy this experience adequately. 10.

  • Lovely Protos Winery. It combines the oldest part located under the Peñafiel Castle with new installations of more modern style. I recommend the tasting premium (about €20 person) that if booked in advance (I did it three weeks earlier), since squares are usually cover fast. Payment is made at the winery just before the visit. On arrival was very nice and offered us detailed information about the tradition of wine, process development, etc. At the end of the tour they gave us to taste four different types of wine along with selected inlay in the area. I recommend it as a nice experience.
