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 November 2014, the group visited the complex where we had a guided tour by Luisa,
a sample of their red wine, 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.

Photographs by Jacqui Rogerson, John Wilde and Clive White.
