Wine Escapade to Utiel-Requena
Just outside of Valencia is the beautiful wine region of Utiel-Requena; well-known in Spain for its red Bobal wines and excellent sparkling wines known as Cava. This is a tour which caters to wine enthusiasts and even to those with a basic understanding of wine. We will get out into the breathtaking Valencian countryside where we will discover a boutique family bodega (or winery), discover some of the wine-maker’s secrets, and have a sampling of the best local wines and Cavas coupled with local snacks. This is more than just a wine tour, as we will explore the citadel of Requena with its friendly people, winding streets, castle, tunnels and caves.

This is a 8-hour experience and we will leave Valencia at 9:30 am and return to Valencia by 5:30 pm. We recommend that you bring comfortable shoes, and the necessary clothes depending on the season (sunscreen in the summer and a sweater or jacket during the winter). The wine region sits more than 700 metres above sea level and so the temperatures would be 5° C cooler than in Valencia. We will have time to explore each place as well as purchase wine if you so intend.
