“Never happened”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Visited in the morning and booked an English speaking tour for 13.00. "You must be here on time" we were told. So we arrived at 12.50. The place was locked up no sign of anyone. We waited until 13.00 then found a back entry to the offices, knocked nothing, opened the door and shouted in, eventually a young man appeared. We asked about the tour "Oh yes, I'm your guide." Ran down stairs and opened up the cellar for us. "Please wait for rest of party" and vanished. We waited until 13.20, nothing. We went back upstairs and found our guide again. "Sorry we have to wait for rest of party. Please have a seat." We were offered a very sharp and bitter white wine which we could not drink. At 13.40 we were very frustrated and told "sorry you have to wait for VIP party." How long? "Don't know should be here for 13.00 but we don't know" We left at 13.45 total waste of time and money. Don't go there, just go to a supermarket, get a few bottles of wine at about €4 a bottle and go have a picnic much more fun and less frustrating.

“Waste of Time”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

We read some reviews about this place on here and saw it had a great review so during a trip we went way out of our way to go to it. This was a mistake. The tour is expensive and nothing special. The wines are poor quality at best. They are not even corked. They are sold with screw off caps like a bottle of coca cola. At least they were not expenive for the bottles. The biggest dissapointment was that the tour guide was extremely rude.

“A marvelous stop, had we known of this gem, it would have been our destination!”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

The tour was incredible, very well done, and we felt very well versed in the history and workings of the winery, and quite in awe of it when we were escorted to the tasting room! If only we could have extended our stay we would stayed the week to sample and figure out how to ship back as much as we could have carried! I hate to let the secret out, but, this will be a destination for a romantic getaway soon. I do have a picture or two, but, I haven't downloaded them yet!!
Cheers!
