The Bodega is no exception!

Nestled in the back corner of the historic Casa de la Guerra, is an original wine cellar dating back 200 years. Appropriately, the word bodega translates to wine cellar, so it is fitting to name this unique space as the home of the second tasting room for Standing Sun Wines
