Firstly, it was very helpful to be able to email and arrange the visit in advance, and ensure we had an english tour guide that fitted into our itinerary.

Had never been to a vineyard before I visited Yllera. It was a great day out, though a bit of a distance to travel from where we were staying in Madrid. Got to see wine production as it happened. Guided tour was marvellous and the caves/ cellars atmospheric. A plentiful wine tasting of the most sumptuous wines along with cheeses/... More

Even if the tour was in Spanish and I don't speak it, it was really worth the visit and the money. My girlfriend translated the most important parts, and the other parts did explain themselves. The visit took about 3 hours and finished by tasting some wines accompanied by some crackers, cheese and cold cuts. Next time I visit Spain... More

Yllera wine company has very extensive, ancient wine cellars which they have updated to make accessible for tourists, with good lighting and an elevator. They are very beautiful and well worth a visit. The tour included tastings of three wines, plus tapas of ham, chorizo, cheese and bread. It is also possible to have lunch in the cellars with prior...

My wife and I went for a visit and lunch on a Sunday at 12pm and it lasted over 3 hours and was wonderful.

We did not get a chance to visit the Bodega as there was no English tour during the 2 days we were in Rueda. But we did visit their shop and tasted some great wines and bought quite a few! There are also little wine knick-knacks and wine infused cosmetics for sale. The salesman was very helpful, spoke little English... More

It can be challenging to arrange wine tasting tours when abroad but not at Bodegas Grupo Yllera. Yllera's main cellar is 20 meters / 65 feet deep and is a labyrinth (series of confusing paths). Yllera weaves Greek mythology into the picture, which indicated that on Crete, the labyrinth housed a minotaur (half human, half bull fearsome creature). They call... More
