The tour was fairly quick, which was fine because there's not much to see. The wine was very nice and gave us an opportunity to taste wine that isn't exported anywhere. The woman who did the tour and poured the wine was very nice, a...More

We tasted three wines (our choice, more were available) for around 3euros per person. This included the tour, which was a nice introduction to Pico’s wine production. They make a unique white wine based on grapes grown on the black volcanic rock.

Our guide was very engaging and explained the process of wine making although the winery itself wasn't particularly spectacular. The main event was the tasting. We bought a few bottles to drink while we are on the islands - so best to visit a few...More
