A really big surprise. A friendly welcome in the future. We had an assortment of adapted cheeses with 4 different wines. This from soft to harder with both cheese and wine. A wow feeling. We are not red wine drinkers at all, but our Belgian (room temperature) red wines are not at all comparable to those from here in the region, they are even served cold. After tasting a nice explanation about the grapes (even got to taste). And then you get the tour inside the room where everything is processed. And at the very bottom the biggest surprise, very specle space ;). During the tour you will also get to know 1 wine that is processed completely the same but then matures on land and the other under water. Same bottle, but what a difference due to pressure, sunlight and temperature. Delicious, definitely recommend to try them.

Great tour, passionate guide/driver Joel who shared his knowledge of Tenerife’s history with us. My mum and I were picked from our hotel in Adeje and thus had a great tour around the island to the North. Vineyard / Bodega Monje was interesting, a fascinating old building, the wine tasting paired with nice snacks was very good. They organise a variety of unusual events here., check their website. Lunch was at a local Guachinche restaurant Como en Casa, rustic, homely, very busy with mainly locals and excellent food including dishes with a heritage going back many hundreds of years. This was a wonderful tour, educational, cultural, combined with great wines and delicious food.

My wife and I had a wonderful day. The wine tour and tasting was very enjoyable and the venue has amazing views. Great place to spend a couple of hours. The wines are for sale but no hard sell and very good prices. We were

Recommended! Delicious wines and matching cheeses allowed to taste and very good explanation. Tour also top and well and clearly explained.

Great experience, the guide was really knowledgable and the wines were really good
