The winery is open to visitors all year round (after appointment). The visitors' wine experience starts even before arriving at the winery, as the route and the surrounded landscape is filled with images that emphasize the viticulturist character of the region. The tour starts from the production areas of the winery, continues at the cellar and ends at the tasting room where the guest then has the opportunity to taste our wines. Please contact earlier to inform us about your visit for wine tasting (phone/email). There is a tasting fee of 5€ per person. Opening hours: Monday-Friday, 10:00-15:30, after appointment.

Great shop with tour. Wine tasting was excellent a lot of wines for the price of the tasting. Also the wines themselves were well priced. Hard place to find on your own so feel free to ask locals for directions.

Hi, Its a 25-30 min. drive. We rented a car on our vaction and used it to get there as well. I think it's better this way. Great wine and beautiful country road. You don't want to miss that!
