  • Paula received us super nice explaining about the wines. The cheeses were delicious, and we bought some wines ...

  • Arriving at the scene found a space destroyed by a climatic event. So far understandable, but what we saw was a horror. Ms. Paula in answering and introduced us to a small grape Orchard totally undermined by the same event. However the dirt and abandonment of the site have been amazing. A lady that helped start the wash the bowls that would be served the wine with a Loofah in a filthy sink fully dirty. The bathroom I daren't comment. The tasting of wines that can be purchased at any supermarket without much reference. The cheeses were served in any bakery. When we were going to the place the desk clerk SISAI, which stayed in warned about what we would find, but as we had already scheduled we just honoring our commitment. HOWEVER I SUGGEST NOT TO MAKE SUCH A TRIP.
