I arrived at the winery today with the intention of just sampling some wines but ended up also doing a tour (in English) with Laura. I really enjoyed learning about the grapes and processes and how they’ve changed over time. The building is also a...More

Thank you for your visit and your comments!
Have a great trip!
This was a disappointing stop for us. Despite booking ahead (and confirming), the tour wasn’t available in English. We tagged along the Spanish tour and tried to pick up what we could — interesting but nothing special and there wasn’t the the detail you’d get...More

My friend and I visited Carmelo for wine tasting and we weren't disappointed. We were given a private wine tour from the Irurtia family followed by a tasting. The winery is very close to the city of Carmelo and you can bike there if you...More
