Fodor's Review

One of the country's oldest wineries, Goyenechea was founded in 1868 by a Basque immigrant family that had the foresight to build not only a solid brick winery, but also 60 houses for the working families, a school for their children, a repair shop, and a chapel. Today fifth-generation families live in the homes, and the school still rings with the laughter of their children. As you pass through the arched caves where wine ages in bottles, you can see the piletas, huge concrete vats that held 8,976 gallons of wine when the industry was focused on quantity, not quality. Family members often lead tours (call ahead or email [email protected] to reserve one in English), and visitors are sometimes invited for wine tastings next door on the family's patio.
