Valencia 2018

23-30 September, 2018

Wine Tour Brand

Valencia has recently stepped out of the shadow of Madrid and Barcelona to become a world class destination in its own right. With its stunning City of Arts and Science (designed by local architect Calatrava), as well as a charming old quarter and a burgeoning gourmet scene, the city is on the rise. 

The region is the birthplace of Spain’s best known dish, paella, and of course is famous for the huge swathes of orange trees that dominate the landscape. Local drinks such as Agua de Valencia (a cocktail made from orange juice, Cava and sugar) and horchata (made from tiger nuts) are not to be missed. Valencia, both the city and region, has the feeling of a place whose time has come to shine and we are delighted to be returning there.
