Bodega de la Ardosa

ardosa1The Bodegas de la Ardosa owes their name to the wine-growing region of Toledo. In the late 19th century, Rafael Fernández opened a chain of wine merchants to sell the wine from his vineyards. No more than four of those establishments remain in business, although more than thirty were opened. Until the 1980s, the business centred on selling wine in demijohns and bottles, although the bodega also had the usual bar with a tin-surfaced counter where wine and other drinks were served. In 1979, Gregorio Monje changed the focus of his business to serving beer rather than selling wine, influenced by recent legislation prohibiting the sale of wine in demijohns. At present, this bodega serves customers an excellent array of tapas and an exquisite Czech beer that is known worldwide.

As well as having the oldest Guinness tap, it is also recognized as the best Pilsner brewery in Spain.
