                        "Wine tours, tastings and historic sites ...more than wine"                                                                                                               utielrequena

 Valencian Cellar Tours                                    



                              **  Requena Winery 1/2 Day  **


  Come with me and discover the wines of Valencia´s "terroir" visiting a leading wine estate.

The D.O Utiel-Requena is the largest, highest (600-900m)  & the furthest inland of the Valencian D.O´s possessing great growing conditions.
It´s the rising star of the Valencian wine regions collecting more than 160 international awards in 2018. G
ood vintages & talented vintners have brought the Utiel-Requena region into a new era. You will encounter elegant, dry herbal rosés, delicate fresh Cavas focusing on chardonney &  rich whites tinged with subtle toast of new oak &  of course powerful, well structured red wines.. notably their unique "Centenary Bobal" vines yielding under 2kg ..complimented by noble grapes  like Syrah &  Garnacha used to create Pago estate wines .  BARRICAS

 These wines now compete with the more well known Spanish  names and often outshine their competition ! 

  We start  in the vines looking at the viticulture techniques, differences like hand vs machine harvesting etc. and concept of terroir. Then a fully guided  visit of the boutique winery explaining how they make their wines and Cava (the Spanish Champan) ....more of a mini 101 wine education with interesting facts from grape to bottle .  

After a tour of the bodega & production hall, we enter the cool Cava cellars and on to the barrel salon; a temple of aging Crianza & Reserva wines.

You then have the pleasure of tasting a selection of the estate´s  Premium wines & Cava´s in the Tasting Salon,  complimented with local cheese, Iberian charcouteria and also taste the estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Wines may be purchased at excellent prices directly from cellar.  *Although we have just outlined the visit here it is far from a typical wine tour one often encounters  and I believe this is a unique wine experience....even for seasoned wine me!
Salud !    

valencian_cellars_Utahguests_2.jpg      Taking a panoramic scenic drive through wine countryside we make a short trip to Requena historic town with a stop at a local artisan shop (cured sausages, honey,pottery etc). Requena has it´s own DOP for embutido with unique recipes like "chorizo marinated in Cava" or "salchichon & walnuts"... local delicatessen at great prices. I confess it´s one of my favourite tapas with a glass of Cava!
