ENJOY A FANTASTIC DAY DISCOVERING VALENCIAN WINES AND CAVA
Let us guide you to Requena, located west of Valencia city, just about 65 km west from Valencia City where you will discover an unique village founded in the Iberian era.The Romans were here too, but it was the Arabs who originally named the town Rakana, meaning the strong, the self-confident.Later called Requena, it has become one of the most important towns specializing in fine vineyards and wine production. It has earned for itself a D.O. (“Denomination of Origin”), meaning a prestigious product classification which is awarded to products that are produced in designated Spanish regions according to stringent production criteria. D.O. labels serve as a guarantee of utmost quality.
During our amazing tour, we will visit a local and family owner winery, where you will discover the culture and traditions of winemaking (valencian wines and cava – Spanish sparkling wine). We will show you the local gastronomy visiting an artisan sausage boucherie where you enjoy the local embutidos (Spanish seasoned meats).
Afterwards you will be able enjoy a stroll through the small town quarter called La Villa which was declared a National Heritage site in recognition of its historic buildings, stately homes, which are situated in walled formerly Muslim precincts known as the Alcazaba, Medina or Arrabales. Underneath the whole quarter, we find a network of the oldest caves in the region. These were used as shelters, wine cellars and even as silos. A tour of these caves will give you an insight into the rich history of Requena.
