Utiel and Requena, the Valencian wine villas
The most important wineries in Valencia are located here
We are going to the Valencian Tuscany!
Utiel-Requena, a protected designation of origin, is located less than 1 hour from Valencia and is an area full of valleys and vineyards in which the main economic engine is wine.
This wine tradition dates back to the 7th century BC. and it is one of the oldest in the world.
And this excursion will fully immerse you in the villas par excellence where Valencian wine is produced.
You will discover the wine-making processes and the vineyards’ fields, allowing you, during the season (August-September), to taste the grapes right from the vine and in October, participate in grape stomping.
Utiel-Requena is a gift for the senses, a visual symphony of natural beauty and serenity. Its extensive vineyards paint the landscape with shades of green and gold that change with the seasons, from the lush spring to the golden autumn of the grape harvest. Rolling hills and mountains hug the vineyards, offering majestic panoramas with picturesque villages dotted around.
A place to disconnect and immerse yourself in the harmony of the land and the wine.
On the excursion we will get to know two places, one located in Requena and the other in Utiel: first we will go to the Cuevas de la Villa and then we will do the tasting at the Bodega Vera de Estenas.
Did you know that under the same town of Requena there are some caves from the Muslim era?
A tangle of caves perfectly built as a cellar, shelter and food store in case of catastrophe.
22 caves were excavated between the 12th and 13th centuries and are still intact today.
