The winery, built partly above ground and partly underground, dates back to the beginning of the 16th-century. Since then, every year for nearly 500 years a new vintage wine has been nurtured within its walls.
At the end of the aging process, the winemaker will insist on bottling his red wines without filtration to preserve their character, fruit, and texture. You are welcome to discover the art of winemaking.
Enjoy a sit-down tasting and the stunning view of the vineyards. You will follow the grape’s journey as it travels from the vineyard through the cellar to the finished wine, learning about the history of organic viniculture, the complex process of fermenting the grapes and about the mysteries of oak aging.
