It was here we discovered Pattaro, homemade Bolivian sweet wine. It is lovely but don't make the mistake thinking it will taste like wine. I can only describe it like sherry with a lot of sugar! It tastes way better than that sounds.

I really liked this place for the aesthetics - it's mud rubbed walls, hanging vines, a lady cooking over an open fire and then a dining area sheltered with a roof and with an open air view of a vineyard.

The place does get slammed with tours but I found it really lovely. The cool thing was that it's full of local Bolivian tourists.

The place struck me as super disorganized and it took me a while to figure out to order food and drink. Eventually I found out we had to turn right after we entered, buy some tickets and then give that to any of the nice waiter folk.

It's a bit of a drive from Tarija but a lovely little trip nonetheless.

So go and have fun!

the only thing that counts is money and selling there wine. You will come in a small group together with many other groups. Tasting the wine you will have to do with all these groups in a small room. Per type of wine there is only one glas. All have to take a zipp from the same glas. They won't aks you to take a position in the room but they will command you. They treat you as small children. It was humiliating. A very bad exampel for tourism. Spent you money somewhere else.

I went to Tarija alone, so I decided to join a group wine tour. This was of the stops and easily one of my favorites. When you are there you get to try all their wines! They also have a restaurant with amazing views! The staff is also very helpful and sweet ! If you're in the area pay them a visit!

A must when you go to Tarija. Enjoy 11 or so cups of wine to taste, they go from the driest to the sweetest (my favorite). Make sure to save your money to purchase some bottles (in cash - Bolivianos). The wine here is produced by small farmers so you can taste the sweetness from the grapes vividly (Love iT). This place is also a restaurant, so I would advise visiting La Casa for lunch or dinner time and doing the tasting either before or after the meal.
