This is probably one of the most outstanding activities you can do when you visit Horche. Believe or not, there are more than 400 cellars distributed throughout the village. Despite of most of the cellars date back to the XV century and the first part of the XVI century, a couple of them still preserve the same appearance as centuries ago.
Nowadays, there are only around 70 which are currently producing their own wine exclusively for the family and friends consumption. This is an organic and 100% natural product fruit of the hard work along the whole year. Since 2012, visitors of Horche have the opportunity of visiting some of these cellars and meeting their owners thanks to the Wine tour.
Horche’s cellars and its wine culture are both an important part of the historic heritage, as well as a tourist attraction, especially the last Sunday of April, when the local Wine Contest is held every year. The Wine tour is open to the public in the morning on Saturday, Sunday and holidays (reservation required).
Duration: 2 hours approx.
