Driving right through the territory of century old oak and Chestnut trees we reach the ancient San Miguel Royal Tin Factory dating from year 1725. The Real Fabrica de Hojalata as its called in spanish is officially declared as a Historic Industrial Monument with cultural interest. It still maintains the original buildings; the first blast furnace of Spain, and where the laminates of tin sheets were processed. The San Miguel church has also been restored, as the workers' village.
Completely restored by its current owner it has been converted into a beautiful ecological winery, and the complete production of wine (from grape to the bottle) is done all on the winery itself.
Optional lunch is possible and can be decided on the spot.
Great historic explanation of the full property will be given and ofcourse also about the production of its wine, which we get to taste in its different states of elaboration, before we have get the chance to have a great glass of the final 100% ecological product with a small local "tapa" snack.
Wines can aso be purchased directy from the winery.
On the way back we stop for a coffee in Alpandeire, the born place of the famous capuchin priest Fray Leopoldo, before we get back to base.
