November, Wednesday 21st! My advice is to put it in your diary right now, and give me a call 629 388 159 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seats – be quick though, we are already half full!
I have discovered a bodega near Moixent, inland from Gandia, that makes excellent quality wine, amongst the best not just in the DO Valencia but in the whole of Spain, according to Peñin Guide marks (and my own!!), nestled in fact under the mountains atop of which lie the foundations of the ancient village of La Bastida de Alcusses, an Iberian Village which was inexplicably deserted some time over 2,300 years ago!
We’ll visit this ancient settlement with a guided tour of the village and the ‘house’ adjacent which has been built in modern times but using the same methods and materials that would have been used all that time ago to give us a further insight into how the Iberian people will have lived.
Then we visit the bodega, Celler del Roure, with our guide, Pablo, the owner whose family have owned the site for many years. We’ll tour, and taste of course – including a visit to the underground cellar (easy access though) where the earthenware tinaja fermentation vessels are stored, dating back hundreds of years. Please see attached photo.
Then it’s off to lunch at the rather splendid Restaurante Mas de Monserrat, with wine – claro!
We have a maximum of 30 seats available!
All the above for just 40€! It should be a splendid, fascinating and extremely tasty day out!
