Visit the Utiel-Requena Wine Country where the history of Spain comes alive in one quaint village with a Medieval Castle and Moorish Cave visit as well as great wine tastings!
Come with us 50 minutes west of Valencia to sip local wines and explore Spain’s medieval and Moorish history, not to mention the unique country-side dabbled with vineyards.
We will visit the quaint medieval town of Requena, best known for the Spanish wine denomination ‘Utiel-Requena’. There are several wineries, but we will visit the best with a tour of the old winery, vineyards and the production process, including tasting several wine and treats from the region. In the historical center of Requean, we will do more tasting, sampling 3-5 different wines from this region at the ‘Wine Club,’ whilst marvelling at the centuries of history and enjoying the scenery.
Lunch will be a three-course meal of your choice inside a beautiful 300 year old medieval home (dependent on reservations). We will then climb the medieval castle for gorgeous views of the countryside and a step into the medieval past of Spain.
After a short walk around the small town, we will end in the main plaza where we will visit Moorish caves underneath the old town, used in medieval times for wine storage among other things.
If time permits, we may stop at the famed medicinal waters of “Siete Aguas” – a fountain said to relieve drinkers of all ailments, so bring an extra water bottle to fill up on nature´s medicine.
The exact order of the spots to visit may be subject to change, due to opening times and so forth, but we will get to see it all regardless!
