European Wine Tourism day – 8 November Utiel-Requena


European Wine tourism day comes to Utiel-Requena 8 November 2009.
 
Sunday 8 November sees an open door policy at the bodega members of the Ruta del Vino organisation of Utiel Requena. The ruta del vino is a tourist arm of the wine area aimed at promoting the food, wine and other tourist interests such as walking and adventure holidays in the area.
 
Some 20 plus bodegas will open their doors and allow visitors to taste the first production of this years wine vintage. Whilst many will be unfinished wines destined for blending and/or ageing in wooden casks this is a great opportunity to sample the raw product and assess the success of this years harvest which has by all accounts been mixed due to the long hot dry summer.
 
The ten towns that make up the wine route tour are Camporrobles, Caudete de las Fuentes, Chera, Fuenterrobles, Requena, Siete Aguas, Sinarquas, Utiel, Venta del Moro and Villagordo del Cabriel. All are easily accessible and not more than an hour by car from Valencia. Also participating are a number of wine-shops, restaurants and bars as well as museums and other touruist attractions.
