The Star Pairing is undoubtedly our star activity. It begins in the winery with a guided tour of our subway cellars of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries to finish in our spectacular place "The Garden of Varieties", where we merge the two worlds that we are most passionate about: WINE and STARS. It is one of the most awarded wine tourism activities in Spain. The catered dinner is served at sunset and consists of several skewers specially designed to pair with each wine. After dinner, the stellar pairing begins, in which 5 wines are paired with 5 constellations with the help of luminous glasses and by looking at the firmament.

About the winery
The winery, winner of the Best of the Oenological Tourism Prize, is built on six underground stonework ashlars dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. In them, you will discover our Ethnographic Museum that contains remains of all the cultures and civilizations that have preceded us and that have inhabited the Rioja Alavesa.
In the first one, we can find our Ethnographic Museum, a sample of the development of viticulture in Elciego. The exhibition includes a wide range of objects, from utensils from 6,500 years ago, to implements related to viticulture used in the 19th century.
Note our Chapel, chaired by the Virgin of the Plaza, located in an original altarpiece of the sixteenth century, where we can also see the oldest document that works in the winery and dating from 1583.
Our oldest cellar dates back to 1400. We wanted to leave it unrestored so that our visitors can admire a small sample of how our ancestors worked.
Our special tasting room is located in an underground cellar. From the tasting table you can enjoy a wonderful view of an infinite vineyard also located 10 meters underground.
Finally, we enter the "tunnel of the senses" composed of 5 old tanks and 4 restored fermentation lakes where the visitor can appreciate the colors of the wine, experiment with the aromas, know the ideal temperatures...
