Did a tasting here two days in a row and the lovely staff were very informative. Full tasting for 22 euro is hard to beat! Perfect for couples or small group. Very charming rustic setting.

Went with the hubby and had a lovely glass of wine with cheese plate. Staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was great. We didn’t do the tasting, but there were several groups there doing so.
