What is the difference between vineyard, winery and bodega?

The vineyard refers to the plantation where the grapes are grown, while the winery is the part where the wines are produced.

A bodega may not always be in the same location as the vineyard and may process grapes from a different vineyard. 

In addition, when a wine is labeled as vineyard, it means that the winery and the vineyard are in the same place and are processed by the same people, whereas if the wine is labeled as winery, the grapes come from different vineyards.

Whatever the label on your wine, from a vineyard or winery, the quality of the wine doesn't really depend on it. It is up to you to decide which wine passes your palate.
