Could be a grocery shop, fruiterer, bottle-shop or bar; whatever avenue takes your fancy! Very impressive range of local products and produce which have been chosen with care. Their fresh tomatoes are to die for! The out-side bar (beer-barrel tables and set- in -the wall...benches) may not have spectacular views, but wine by the glass is of exceptional quality, from local wineries and very moderately priced....and accompanied by complimentary tapas. ++++ Try the very local "Vermouth", similar to a fortified muscat... and enjoyable end to a memorable eveningMore

From the outside it looks like a small bar, with a couple of barrels serving as tables for cushioned benches. When you walk inside it looks like a shop, with all sorts of local produce available. Further inside, there are tables at which you can...have a drink, which will be accompanied by a great tapa: jamón, the tastiest local tomatoes, with a little oil and oregano, the best chorizo picante. All seriously tasty. And once you’ve tasted it all, you go back out through the shop and stock up. Great place.More

Visited here purely by accident but will definitely return. Bodega la Alacena is down a narrow street Calle by the church in Capiliera, went in to try out some of the local wines. We sampled all the vinos de caseras (House wines) on offer all...were good some excellent the rosado was served ice cold from an earthenware jug lovely and refreshing with pleasant flowery bouquet, the red wines(vino Tinto) the Joven was robust and extremely well matched with a tapas of local salami, the crianza was lighter and smoother with red blueberry overtones with gentle acidity matched with the thinly sliced Jamon. The white not sure of the grape variety was excellent and the standout for me with beautiful floral aroma reminiscent of a Gewurtztraminer but slightly more robust sweetness again went very well with the mild sheep cheese tapas. This place has an amazing atmosphere like being invited into a locals house 80 years ago a wonderful feel. We'll be back soon to sample more wine charcuterie and purchase some of the great wines.More
