From June 15 to 17, we invite several experts in the world of wine to show them our winery. The objective of this event was to highlight what has positioned us as one of the most awarded wine tourism projects in Spain. Throughout that weekend, all the attendees stayed in our agrotourism and enjoyed many activities.
