A Little Trivia
The Bodegas Muga winery is more than just a winery, it is a historical monument to the area. The cellars still contain original machinery from the 15th century, including an old stone press that was used to make some of the first wines produced at the winery. Every year during the harvest, they organize a "harvest festival" where visitors can take part in traditional activities such as grape stomping and barrel rolling. It's definitely a unique and fun experience!
