I’ll be leading a Bodega trip to Bodegas Castaño and their sister bodega, Bodegas Sierra Salinas for the Rotary Fellowship on Tuesday 13th March. It’s a super day out – just 30€ for return travel, a tour of both bodegas with the winemaking process and the bodegas’ philosophy explained in a very user-friendly and fun way, a three course super lunch of local specialities, plus of course plenty of wine, and not any old wine – both bodegas make award winning high pointers in alkl the wine guides! We may have some space on the coach – please contact me if you would like to join us. Leaving Calpe at 08:30 hrs; Benissa at 08:45 hrs; and Moraira at 09:00 hrs. Please call me on 629 388 159.

We both thoroughly enjoyed our trip last tuesday to the Bodega Castaño. Of particular interest was their the manner of ”pressing” the grapes by using their inherent weight and therefore not mechanically bruising and damaging them.
Also their forward looking vision in growing 16? grape varieties with the intention to blend and create new exciting tastes.
The paella meal with plenty of wine to accompany it was a fitting finale to a super day.
The whole was ‘orchestrated’ by Colin in his inimitable and humorous style.
Thanks a lot. We look forward to the next time!!
