Pisco Distillery

We visited Vista Alegre on our trip trough Ica couple of days ago. It was really nice experience seeing how the grapes are collected in the wine yards and then processed to create the Pisco. We also tried one white wine, one red and of course Pisco at the end. Really nice tour, 1h approx.

Great Tour
May 2019 • Couples
We toured several wineries in ICA, this is smaller than some others, but the tour guide was great. He spent a lot of time explaining the entire process from taking us out into the fields through the final step of bottling. He answered everyone's question, making sure that they understood what he was saying. I liked the fact that they took us through all the steps, starting with the fields. Other places we were did not do this.

Interesting laid-back tour
May 2019 • Friends
We had jesus as our tour guide and it was really nice. We arrives in the morning and given that nobody also was there, we had a private tour. The tour was very laid-back and jesus gave a lot of information (in english). We could ask a lot of questions and there was absolutely no rush. The premises is also very beautiful! At the end, we were given 2 wines, pisco and vermouth for the tasting afterwards. There was also nobody pushing us to buy anything. We did buy a small bottle of pisco as a souvenir :) recommanded!

Fantastic

This was my favourite winery in Ica. The guide had excellent English and knowledge of wine and pisco. It was a more serious tour and great tastings at the end. It was exactly what I was after. The view was amazing. Lots of good photo opps.

Pisco and Wine

Our tour guide showed us the vineyards and walked us through the process of making their wines and pisco. They have a gorgeous view of mountains behind their vineyard. Our guide was willing to answer questions and provided generous pours for the tastings at the conclusion of the tour.

If you are looking for a winery to just taste wines, this is not for you. If you really want to know how wine and pisco is made this is for you. We started in the fields and went through every step. All my question were answered (I do not speak Spanish) our guide spoke excellent English. One of the best tours I've taken.

An okey bodega
Dec 2015 • Friends
Vista Alegre is situated some km outside of Ica. It's a nice and cosy place. You pay s/. 5 for a short guided tour (definitively best in Spanish - English is so so) and you get to try white and red vine + Pisco. The tour should be longer, but the place has history and a nice view.

Local but interesting vineyard
Sep 2015 • Couples
It is a rural but pittoresque vineyard (just outside Ica). They produce sweet & dry wine and pisco. You had to pay 5 soles per person, but you get decent tasting glasses after the tour.
Our guide Jesus demonstrated a profound knowledge of wine making and explained everything in english for us. The tour is short, but you can ask as many questions as desired. The wines are not half bad, but they were not the best wines we tried during our vineyard around ica!

Rude and Unfriendly

We arrived 10 minutes after the noon tour had started and the woman in the reception area curtly told us that we could not join the tour in progress that had barely started. I asked her if we could pay the admission and sample the wines and she said no. I have never been treated so poorly at an establishment that is supposedly supposed to cater to tourists.

I was very taken aback by her negative and unfriendly attitude and would not recommend going there. Fortunately, I had just had a wonderful experience at the La Tacama vineyard so I did not care that we were snubbed.

Interesting but average
An interesting visit if a little quick as you're whisked around with guide, Jesus. He isn't the most smiley or upbeat of characters but is informative about the various processes and grape types that this place produces.
You get a lot, lot of tastings at this bodega which isn't actually that good as after this first vineyard of several at 10.45am you're on your way to being rather tipsy. But value for money at 5s. The wines themselves are as most Peruvian wines are said to be, sweet and rather blunt, especially surprising a malbec. Wines are cheap but not to our personal taste.
