Trip to Requena

Thursday 20th June 

Fifty-one members and guests visited the Unión Vinícula Del Este bodega in Requena to learn about the production of Cava.  The bodega produces eight different types of Cava under the trademark of Vega Meriden and the group was shown the working bottling production line and given explanations of the whole process.  This was followed by a tasting of the various Cavas, with further explanations about the different qualities of each. 
A fascinating and instructional visit.

The group then went into Requena town to have lunch at the restaurant Fortaleza, which is situated just behind the castle and at the edge of the ‘casco antiguo’ old  part of the town.  A convivial and excellent menú del día was enjoyed before the group rejoined the coach for the homeward journey to Jávea. 
All in all, a memorable day out.
