We want to thank you for helping us with the booking at Bárbara Palacios´ ”Barbarot”. We enjoyed the visit at this small winery, and Barberas presentation. She is really dedicated to her work. It was a bonus to be picked up at our address. We realized that we were the first visitors at her winery, so she will surely improve. Overall for the tour and tasting: 7. After we got the right address to Bárbara, the experience with Winetourism.com was good.
