A really big surprise. A friendly welcome in the future. We had an assortment of adapted cheeses with 4 different wines. This from soft to harder with both cheese and wine. A wow feeling. We are not red wine drinkers at all, but our Belgian (room temperature) red wines are not at all comparable to those from here in the region, they are even served cold. After tasting a nice explanation about the grapes (even got to taste). And then you get the tour inside the room where everything is processed. And at the very bottom the biggest surprise, very specle space ;). During the tour you will also get to know 1 wine that is processed completely the same but then matures on land and the other under water. Same bottle, but what a difference due to pressure, sunlight and temperature. Delicious, definitely recommend to try them.

Jaime was a great, knowledgeable guide. Day started off rainy and cloudy and he changed the itinerary a bit to delay us to Mt Teide. I worked perfect cause we got the most amazing views. And the winery tour, lunch and wine tasting he chose was spectacular.

Recommended! Delicious wines and matching cheeses allowed to taste and very good explanation. Tour also top and well and clearly explained.

Very nice personal and the tasting itself went very well, everything that one can expect from this kind of service.

Great experience, the guide was really knowledgable and the wines were really good
