Domingo Molino


A small producer, perched on a gorgeous hillside overlooking the verdant valley, backed by rugged mountains, with vineyards cascading down the slopes. It bottles 21 varieties of wine here, including some bubbles. You can't taste them all, but you can sip several by choosing one of five tasting options, each with a combination of reds and whites.
