Lovely vineyard in a beautiful setting. The tour was interesting and not too long but only in Spanish. We enjoyed a nice glass of wine afterwards with an antipasti platter, very enjoyable afternoon.

visited and took the wine tour. Quick and straight to the point explaination. That was fine because we enjoyed some time with a platter of cheese, fruit and meats with a couple of glasses of wine. Pretty farm, nice views and an enjoyable and relaxing time.

I wasn't expecting much and ended up enjoying my visit. The tour is pretty standard and in Spanish but the setting is very nice, and how can you be disappointed while walking through a vineyard? The tasting only consisted of one glass of their Cabernet Sauvignon but I believe a glass of any of their 5 wines was $10,000 COP,... More

I have mixed feelings about the tourist trap that is Villa de Leyva. But not about the winery. I heard whispers that Colombia had some good wineries and I was skeptical. I disagree with the views that you do not need to see the tour. For 10,000 pesos I thought it was worth it, just to see how favourably this... More

If you already know the basics about wine, the tour is totally unnecessary. Either way it's a nice place, a vineyard that can be enjoyed as a garden.

if you speak fluent spanish and really want to spend 25 minutes learning all the statistics involved in wine making, and drink a half glass of wine with instructions, by all means pay for the tour. otherwise, use your money to buy a glass of white, one of their meat and cheese platters (not cheap), and sit at one of...

It was a 3-4 hours drive from Bogota airport. On the way the landscape is very pleasant. This medieval town is not big, lined with old colonial Spanish houses and cobbled street,a big square in the center, surrounded by restaurants and handicrafts shops. Those old colonial houses has a special charm.weather is extremely nice there, It's a place worth to... More

In a perfect world 150 miles is not that far, but Colombia has terrible roads, and even worse traffic, so be prepared for a very long ride to get there and return. But once you arrive you will be very pleasantly surprised by a perfectly preserved Spanish colonial town left intact, from the cobblestone streets to the wooden balconies jutting... More

The 150-mile trip from Bogota took us nearly 5 hours because of terrible traffic, but once there, we relaxed and enjoyed the cobblestone streets, historical buildings, enormous plaza, fun shops and an excellent restaurant.This town was made for photographing -- the interior courtyards, impressive plaza, mountains in the background, etc. Given the long ride, it was great that we could...

While somewhat gentrified, still a great destination, especially during the week, without the Bogotano-tsunami. Good restaurants and lots of side streets to explore. After your joyous encounter with keychain vendors and illiterate espresso dispensers (even if they can spell, it still does not mean it's more than coffee in a small cup) also see small villages in surrounding areas, take...
