To be done only if you pass by. We were on our way to Nazca and stopped there for visit and lunch. Friendly staff but not to be recommended.

We went to El Catador as part of a Nazca Lines trip. It was interesting and we got to test some of the wines which were not bad if you like sweeter wines. We did buy some along with some Pisco.

Nice little place to stop for an hour or so. Take a quick tour and sample the wines/pisco and you'll have seen what you need to see.

This was definitely a very touristy place. I didn't plan on coming here but Tacama just closed. The staff was helpful and they offered a quick tour of how pisco is made using the old fashioned technique. After, they poured some samples of pisco that...More
