The owners of Viña Alicia don't seem terribly interested in walk-up visitors. Their winery is quite anonymous. There's no sign out front. Not even a street address, as I recall. Were it not for the fact that my driver knew directions, I'm sure I would never have found it. But I'm glad I did.
The wines were excellent (all in the very good to outstanding range) and this visit provided me with one of those wine experiences we all prize: an introduction to great wine where you least expect it. In this case, Nebbiolo.
