We arrived to the Stratvs Winery, asking ourselves what we could find in this winery that we hadn’t seen before, and the truth is that we were surprised from the very start.
As soon as you go in you find the first great image of the winery, with the impressive ancient lamps that illuminate the whole area, and where the guided explanation starts.
The visit continues with the different steps taken to make wine, and through the two floors of the winery, with interesting views.
After the visit, you can buy wine in the store, as well as other products, and there is also the possibility to eat in one of its two restaurants or to drink wine in the terrace. I drank a fresh white wine, it was delicious, the wine, the terrace, the moment.
Unfortunately we had already made a reservation in another restaurant so we couldn’t stay and eat, but I would have gladly stayed because the dishes looked amazing.
La Bodega Rubicon is owned by the Grimón Lopez family. It's an 18th century residence, an example of traditional island manor house architecture. There are guestrooms, a winery and 30 acres of vineyards. Since its inception, the winery has been dedicated to producing wines using traditional methods, like century old wood presses, earthen excavated area, and cement tanks for storage. Over time, the owners have restored the warehouses and acquired new tracts of land.
