Good winery with a very good and informative guide. Tresa is a nice and patient guide and taught us lots of things about wine. It's good for children as they serve non alcoholic liquors while adults taste wine.

Great bodega to visit off the main stream just south of Cordoba. The guide was very gentle and knowlegeable of the history and the methodology to produce those fine wines. And of course we had a great time tasting their very unique PX.

Such an interesting tour. We learned all about alvear and the wine of the region. Well worth the trip. We for a bus from Cordoba and it was just a Joey walk from the bus station to alvear. Lovely day trip

I took some friends of mine who were visiting Montilla and did a guided tour with Teresa. We all loved the story behind the winery and the wine making process. The wine we tastes there was amazing and Teresa sorted all our questions out.

Difficult to review fairly as we came here on a Cosmos tour, when temperatures in Andalucia were hitting a record 44 degrees! It was bliss in the huge, dark, cave/ wine smelling warehouse, but I'm afraid I didn't listen to the lady's commentary much! However...More
