    Well pleased. Worth the visit. In fact I visited twice. My second was off the cuff after visiting the Botanical gardens(also worth a visit), being not that far away.

    Great tour with very friendly staff. Wine tasting was amazing, and was paired with delicious cheeses. Bought 2 bottles of the wine to bring home.

    We enjoyed a short trip around the winery learning about the whole process from planting the vines to harvesting and making the wine. Once the tour had finished we enjoyed 4 of the wines from the winery with canary cheese. It’s not too far from Puerto De La Cruz and well worth a visit.
