César loves his trade, and it shows! The tour is really worth the visit. You learn a lot about history, about wine-making... and you even get an accelerated wine-tasting mini course! A unique cellar which has been proudly preserved by the Samaniego family for generations.

What a fantastic tour! The winery is so beautiful and historic, and the wines are top notch while also very affordable. Our guide Mar was extremely knowledgeable but made the tour fun by telling delightful stories. Highly recommended.

Very good tour, very informative and wonderful wine-wish we could buy it in the uk! We will remember the tears of the grape and the heart of the grape every time we drink now😊

We had booked a tour here absolutely blind and based on the recommendation of our hotel.. what a place! Both informative and atmospheric, with great emphasis placed on the traditional values of the place. Set in deep ancient tunnels!

El Fabulista was the first bodega we visited – where we enjoyed a guided tour underground, before going on to taste a selection of the wines. I loved that the bottles' labels depicted fables and we sampled ‘The Deer & the Vine’ and ‘The Fox...More
