Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards
Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards Review
A tasting at Gloria Ferrer is an exercise in elegance: at tables inside the Spanish hacienda–style winery or outside on the terrace (no standing at the bar at Gloria Ferrer), you can take in vistas of gently rolling hills while sipping sparkling and still wines. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from the surrounding vineyards are the product of old-world wine-making knowledge—the same family started the sparkling-wine maker Freixenet in 16th-century Spain—and contemporary soil management techniques and clonal research. The tour covers the winery's history and its staff's contributions to advancing wine science; you'll also visit the aging caves and see antique wine-making equipment.
