Enjoy a fantastic day of wine tasting in Utiel-Requena.
Requena is just about a 1 hour drive from Valencia, the trip itself offers some lovely views of the mountains, the orange trees and of course the wineries.
Requena is a wine-producing region with roots deep in history, its old town “la Villa” is declared as a Spanish Heritage site. Visit the old town with its stately homes, splendid Gothic facades and discover the caves that we can find under the houses.
The gastronomy is robust and famous for its artisan cured sausages, bring a visit to an artisanal butcher and let me advise you some restaurants to have lunch.
The wines of Requena are still fairly unknown outside of Spain, but the use of traditional methods and latest technology are creating award winning wines for reasonable prices.
Learn about the wine making process and the secrets of Cava during a visit to a winery.
And of course you will get to do some wine-tasting!
Visit a family winery and learn about their unique wines with personality, often the family members share their dream with you and welcome you to their bodega.
Or visit on of the biggest winery in Requena, discovering the winery on a train ride or enjoy the unique experience to drink Cava at an attitude of 1000 meters with a balloon flight over the wineries!
You can also combine your visit to Requena with a rafting excursion or some time at the beach of el Saler.
As a wine passionate this is my favourite excursion outside Valencia! If you like wine, this tour is for you! Ask me for a personalized program.
And if you don´t have time to visit a winery I can organise a wine-tasting meeting your needs in Valencia!
