It was an interesting place to come and eat in the outskirts of the town. The food was good and very ethnic. The price was on the higher side for the quality of the ambiance, but the quantity of food with $20 was enough for 2 meals for 2 people. The most interesting attraction of this place is the decor,...

We had miguel as our guide who was just great and able to crack a few jokes always lightening the mood. The information was spot on to our needs. The tasting was also very informative and gave us a wonderful understanding of the different piscos. If I did the tour again I would have avoided tacama winery unless you want... More

Our server was awesome & made sure we had an entertaining time trying the large selection of piscos made here. We visited a couple of other places, but this one was the most enjoyable by far.

We were in Ica for a day to do some Pisco tasting and sand boarding in Huacachina, and our guide took us here for a tour. The guide spoke English, took us all around the factory, showing us how Pisco is made and how it was made back in the day with old techniques. I believe the factory is a... More

Fantastic and very friendly. The tour was not too long especially as the vinyards were not doing much when we visited. We saw the old tools, learnt about the uses and the customs and looked into the botijas. Then came the tasting. There must have been 8-10 samples. Fairly sizeable. The tasting was good fun with the call "Arriba...." if... More

The visit was described as a vineyard tour, but it ended up being a pisco tasting intead. It was good and I did make purchases, but I wish they actually showed the way it's produced including touring the actual cellars and vineyards. The experience was so so. Not what I expected...

The actual tour was very short, although informative and our guide was very entertaining. The main event was the Pisco tasting and this consisted of two wines and five shots of different types of Pisco. Make sure to line your stomach! We were unsteady on our feet by the time we left! Well worth a visit.

It's difficult to get to the vineyards in Ica unless you take a taxi - but even then, they might charge you a lot for the ones that are far away. This was one of the closest, and as soon as I was dropped off, I was approached by one of the people running it. He gave me a private... More

I visited the location during a tour of Ica city booked through my hotel. The tour lasted around 40 minutes and the tour guide walked us around the traditional facilities to show how they make wine and pisco. After the tour we were able to try 3 different types of wine and 2 different pisco shots (both very nice). We... More
