Comment from Rotary Fellowship Chairman, Barry Lloyd following Bodega Visit

Hi Colin,
On behalf of the 35 members and guests of the Rotary International
Fellowship we wish to thank you for a splendid day on 13 March when we
visited the Sierra Salinas and Castano bodegas. As Ann and myself have
previously experienced, on day trips and three-day away excursions, your
organisation is supurb both as a host and guide. Added to that, your
knowledge and experience of wines in Spain is unsurpassed on the Costa
Blanca and beyond and your elevation to the International Wine Panel is a
testament to that.
Please pass on our thanks to Raquel for acting as our guide and for her
considerable help and knowledge of how wine is produced, stored and packed
in Bordega Costano.
I can best sum up our day with the following quotes from some of our party:
”Interesting, informative, entertaining and the facilities for tasting the
wine with lunch were excellent.” D A, Moraira.
”Always find Colin’s trips informative, interesting and fun.” A and K J,
”We did enjoy ourselves so much, great wine and nice people.” S and J G,
”A most enjoyable day.” S B, Javea.
The day was rounded off by an excellent lunch and the opportunity not only
to taste some of Castano’s top wines, but also to purchase some at very
attractive discounted prices, as the number of boxes on the coach testified!
Again our thanks for all your hard work in the days’s organisation,
including the enjoyable quiz during the return jouney to Moraira and
Finally, anyone reading this who would be interested in finding out what we
