Come with me into Spain's Moorish and Medieval past!

Our main stop is the quaint medieval town of Requena, best known for the Spanish wine denomination 'Utiel-Requena'. There are dozens of wineries, but we will visit the best with a full tour of the winery and the production process, including tasting. In old Requena town, we will do one more tasting, sampling 3-5 different wines from this region at the 'Wine Club'.

Lunch will be at a beautiful 300 year old medieval home, choosing a 3 course meal to your liking. After we will climb the medieval castle for gorgeous views of the country-side 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 also in medieval times, for wine storage, among other things. Step into the 8th century!!

On the way to Requena, or on the way home, we will stop at the famed medicinal waters of 'Siete Aguas'- so bring your ailments for healing!

We leave around 9:30 from your hotel and make a stop in the small town of 'Siete Aguas' or 7 Waters, about 45 min. outside VLC, that has a very famous water fountain that is said to heal all ailments- so ailments welcome.

We then proceed to our first bodega, the 'most expensive' of Utiel-Requena. A lovely old winery in business since 1808, where we get a full tour. We then try a red, a white and a cava, Spain's sparkling wine.

In the old medieval quarter, we will visit a 'wine club' that has a selection of all the Utiel-Requena and Valencia area wines that you may try. Each week they promote a different bodega and on any given day you can try 3-5 of the best.

By this time, you've worked up an appetitie and we go to a 300 year old Meson, to sit on the outdoor patio, weather permitting, and you'll choose your own 3 course meal (not included). Prices are between 12-18€ for a full and lovely meal.

After lunch, we'll visit the medieval castle tower, the Moorish and medieval caves, below the main plaza.
