This is a most interesting winery - especially being located right in the heart of the medieval town of Laguardia. It's entrance could be somewhat deceiving, in that it almost appears to be just a wine shop - but the tour (pre-booking highly suggested) takes you down into the underground cellars and tasting area. The entrance is just across from... More

A wonderful wine place with a history and great people to share/present it. And the wines are real fabulous (not saying it for the pun's sake). This place (in the heart of the lovely town LaGuardia) definitely worths a visit. If you're a wine lover already you will never regret it. If you are not yet one, you'll become one.

My husband and I have been on many winery tours and for the most part, most tours tell you the same thing. Now and then we come across a winery that prescribes to a new technology or unique technique that's fun and interesting. That is what happened here. They make wine the old fashion way, they stomp it.. I would... More

Once you have walked the streets of LaGuardia and go around the city walls a good place to stop is this family winery. The tour is very interesting and pleasant and they have it in English or Spanish depending on what time you go. The tour is 7 euros and includes testing of two wines. The wines are pleasant and...

I really recommend a visit to this bodega. It is an insight into how wine used to be made 200yrs ago. The guide was lovely - very friendly. Perfect English and I think must have been the owner. She was obviously very proud of her winery and quite deservedly so.

Loved it! Make sure to see the map on the wall - it shows how much cellars are underground the entire Laguardia! Kids can have grape juice, - it has the same color as wine, and is so tasty!

We toured El Fabulista winery with a group. The winery is small, producing less than 50,000 bottles per year, all sold in the region. The wine tasting after the tour proved the quality of their 5 products. The three aging cellars are 20+ feet below ground level and their pressing area is also below ground. The guide said that there... More

If you want to find out about traditional wine making methods, which they still employ, then thus us worth a visit. Unfortunately our tour, which takes about an hour, was in Spanish though, a lovely young woman on the tour kindly translated for us.

We took this wine tour based on a recommendation from our hotel and are glad we did. Our tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable. She explained all aspects of their processes very well and gave us a much better understanding of winemaking in Rioja. We were able to sample several wines and very much enjoyed them. The only downside... More
