Winemaking museum in the Alpjuarras mountains near Granada

I was walking down the cuesta chapiz and bumped into David who used to be a Spanish teacher at Carmen de las Cuevas. He told me that he is currently working as a wine expert and general do it all at a vineyard and wine museum in the Alpujarras near to Torviscon. A couple of days ago I went up there for a visit.

There is an organic vineyard of 7 hectares at 1400 metres. The wine was voted the best organic wine in the province of Granada in 2012. There is a very modern, well put together museum explaining how the wine is produced, from the growing of the vines to the production of the wine. There is a restaurant which does a 20 euro menu del dia but this includes a guided tour of the museum and a wine tasting at the end of the museum tour. The setting and views are amazing. On a clear day you can see Africa.

I think David can speak English but as we spoke in Spanish I don't know how good the tour would be in English. He speaks very clearly because he was a Spanish teacher. I already know a fair amount about winemaking but David is an expert and could give interesting answers to difficult questions. If you are a wine buff who fancies an excursion into the mountains it would be a good place to visit.

The website is not very good and has no English version.
