“A Sunday adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

We learned about the Bodegas Andreu Solé from the January-February 2014 ¡Que Pasa! Magazine, the Puerto Rico Tourism publication. The prospect of visiting a winery in Puerto Rico was intriguing. We went as a group of four couples for the Sunday afternoon meal and visit of the vineyard (with prior reservations, as mentioned in the article). We were seated around a beautiful old wooden table under a large sunshade just at the edge of the bay. Our server, Lisa, explained the various tour, drinks and food options and we all decided to take the samples of wine, sangria and rum, the appetizers, and the main course as well as the visit to the vineyard. Lisa brought us the wine and sangria samples and the appetizers as we admired the peaceful bayside setting and the perfect balmy temperature. We were then to go on the tour of the vineyard, but rain threatened, the tour was postponed, and we decided to have the meal before the tour. This was wise, as a light rain turned into a downpour that lasted for hours. Needless to say, the tour was cancelled. Soon our sunshade fell to the assaults of the heavy rain and Lisa set up tables for us on the house’s protected upstairs balcony. She and the other servers were soon soaking wet through and through, but this only increased their attentions towards us. Some of us chose the churrasco (flank steak) while others had the mahi-mahi or the pork chops. All the food was excellent. With the meal came the wine and the passion fruit sangria, and then some more rum samples. We were only charged for the meal and the wine and sangria. We were all amazed at Lisa’s cheerful devotion to us and we all want to go back and visit the vineyard and enjoy the whole experience again – minus the rain, we hope!

“Outstanding Service, Sangria, Wine & Moonshine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

First of all, many thanks go to our server, Lisa Sambolin, for helping to create a special afternoon for my wife and I. She shared her knowledge of the many varieties of sangria, liqueur, wine, and moonshine (pitorro) that is produced by Bodegas Andreu Sole, as well as the history of the founding family and timeline of the vineyard. Lisa's bubbly personality and charm was a perfect addition to the romantic setting along the Guanica Bay.
We started off with the Chupito Sampler of six liqueuers and four sangria varieties, along with the house red wine. Our favorite was the Passion Fruit, so we purchased two glasses along with two bottles to take home. For entrees, we enjoyed filete de dorado, and filete de salmon... both excellent. During our late lunch/dinner on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, delightful live music was played, and bilingual vineyard tours were ongoing.
Lisa also blessed us with two complimentary special-blend mojitos, as well as a full glass of the house red wine.
On our way out, we met the wonderful Marilu, who is part of the family ownership.
Even if you are not a wine aficianado, please visit Bodegas Andreu Sole... whether for a meal, beverage, or a tour and sampling... you will not be disappointed!

“Excellent Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Went late Saturday night with friends, just before the kitchen closed (11pm). Service was excellent. Tapas were amazing; we ordered cod croquettes, whipped salmon and cheese cones, and sausage slices with bread. We decided to order the sangria and artisanal liqueur sampler at first, and to our pleasure turned out to be a great tasting experience. Their house wine, 12 Calles, is delightfully spicy. Pink sangria is amazing, the best sangria I've ever had. Passion fruit sangria is also great. Perfect live music and open, waterfront area creates a very cool, laid-back social ambience.

“Hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

I went with a group of friends on a Friday night and had a very lovely time. There was a band playing The Beatles music, the ambiance was very cool, the sangría is amazing and the tapas very delicious. Our waiter was very nice. If you are looking for a cool place to go on a romantic date or with family and friends this is the place.

“Relaxing atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Spend your Sunday afternoon in front of the Guanica Bay tasting the only Puerto Rican wine. On Sundays you can visit the vineyard. Taste their red wine, four Sangrías and Six liqueurs. the "parcha" sangía is fantastic.
