In recent years, wine tourism has experienced a remarkable boom. Aware of this, in 2019 Bodegas Viña Elena began the restoration of the winery and family home, which dates back to the beginning of the 19th century, with the aim of expanding the offer to visitors with new services, including a restaurant in which to finish the tourist visits, with a pairing menu and where the traditional food of the family and also typical of the area acquires a nuance of modern touches.
This is how La Casa de los Abuelos was born, knowing that all wineries have common elements (wine production and aging area, for example), but not a space like this where the old winery, the winery, the dovecote are valued , the barn and the haystack. It shows how a grape harvest was done and how people lived in the countryside in the 1940s, as well as all the tasks that were carried out.
With the values instilled by the predecessors of Bodegas Viña Elena and the love for the family business, now it pays homage to that tradition, from the grandfather to the current generation, feeling proud and grateful. This project is aimed at people who want to live different experiences, who really want to know the territory, the identity, the character and the traditions of the area.
They tell things that can be seen and felt, without artifice, with all the honesty and humility that comes with belonging to an agricultural and wine-growing area.
In the restoration of La Casa de los Abuelos, absolute respect has been had for what exists. All the rooms of the house, their structure and configuration were maintained, and where modifications had to be made, an attempt was made to make the contrast very evident, generating a dialogue between the old and the modern, without hiding or imitating, with the aim of keeping its originality.
As a company open to tourism, it offers basic visits with a guided tour of the winery and vineyards with a tasting of three wines, its own production of almonds and oil, and a typical tapa from the town.
