Requena has a lot to offer, so much so that we have already selected for you the best to see there.
With the Valencia & Go Tour to Requena, we will pick you up from your hotel in Valencia and take you to Requena where we will do a very complete tour.
Watchful to this very complete excursion to Requena, the city of wine:
For the excursion to this eno-locality, we will pick you up at the hotel where you are staying in Valencia or if it is not possible due to being in a pedestrian area, we will offer you a nearby collection point (pick-ups in the city center, others: consult). After the pickups we will set course for our destination, located 70kms from Valencia.
We will start the route in the “Pago de Tharsys” winery, where we will begin the guided tour of these wineries at 11:00 where their differentiation is Cava, the owner of these wineries is considered the father of the Valencian cava.
Within Pago de Tharsys we will do a tour that will last 45 minutes, where they will teach us the entire process of making their wines and cavas.
After the first winery, we will move to the next one: “Dominio de la Vega”, at 12:30 we will start the tour in its facilities, where they will teach us everything about the grape par excellence in the area: Bobal. During the tour, we will see what products they make and how, all accompanied by an expert guide who will complete the information that we see.
After about an hour and a half visit, at 14:00 we will go to eat.
After lunch, at 4:00 p.m. and to complete the day we will visit the caves of the Villa.
In Requena, there are many houses that have caves using them as cellars, since the temperature is ideal to keep wine, fresh and away from the sun.
The 22 caves under the Plaza de la Villa are from the Muslim era, from the 12th and 13th centuries, and were used until the 17th century, when the private houses and public buildings in the square were demolished. They were discovered in the 70s of the last 20th century.
The way they were built was by excavating the tuff itself, and emptying the clay until reaching the desired depth. It only remained to vault the space and in some cases to raise some partitions. In the tour of the caves the marks of the peaks on some surfaces are recognized in some places.
Finally, we will return to the hotels in Valencia around 5:30 p.m.
19:00 hours end of the day.
