The Maserof Experience - For Lovers of Red Wine

The Maserof Inn Winery & Museum is set high in the Sierra Bernia mountains – a 17th century farmhouse crammed with antiques and relics from a bygone age. It is surrounded by farms and the vineyards from which the splendid Maserof red wine is produced, using the ancient traditions.

In June 2015, for the second time, the group visited the complex where we had a guided tour
by Luisa, a sample of their red wine (actually many samples), followed by a meal in the old dining room.
The owner and chef Caroline cooked us a wonderful meal and even led us in singing afterwards.
An excellent day.
