A special gala dinner to ring in 2019 as fireworks glitter overhead, an excursion to a winery where rare-varietal wines are conditioned underground in clay urns, and Valencia’s vibrant culture await…

This cultural hub is buzzing with a flourishing arts scene and before we return home, we will pay a visit to Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias – an architecturally striking building – where we have a special tasting lined up.

 

Coming into the limelight as a region to watch, a lot of the wines on this tour are not available in the UK. Also visit one of the most aesthetically impressive architectural sites, the City of Arts & Sciences.

Itinerary

Day 1

Upon arrival in Valencia, we are treated to our first taste of excellence with our welcome sampling, which will be hosted by our fabulous Wine Guide. After the wines of this glorious region have been presented, we will enjoy a delicious meal.

Day 2

Our day begins at a critically acclaimed cellar, situated high in the Moixent hills. Celler del Roure stores wine made from rare grapes in underground stone urns, in a cellar that is dug into the natural stone of the surrounding hills. After a winery lunch, we will spend some leisure time exploring the local area or just relaxing. Dinner tonight will be an occasion, as a leg of Spanish ham is carved and paired with wines from the vineyards we visited earlier.

Day 3

This morning we will get to know this beautiful port city a little better with a walking tour, which takes us around streets steeped in history, past visually striking examples of cutting-edge modern architecture and straight into the heart of its undeniably rich culture. There will be free time the rest of the day before we come back together as a group and sit down for our luxurious New Year’s Eve gala dinner, which is followed by celebratory toasts and sparkling fireworks.

Day 4

Today is the first morning of 2019 and we can enjoy a few hours spent at leisure before reconvening after lunch at Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, where we have a very special sunset tasting lined up.

Day 5

Today we say goodbye to our group and catch our return flights home.

From a luxurious New Year’s Eve gala dinner complete with celebratory toasts with sparkling wine to a special culinary experience where a leg of Spanish ham is carved and served alongside perfectly paired wines, we get right to the heart of Valencia’s gastronomic indulgences.

Spanish wines need no introduction. This country boasts a varied climate depending on the region, but there are many incredible varieties to choose from. Our visits on this tour include a unique winery where wine produced from rare grapes is stored underground in stone urns, in a cellar that has been carved into the surrounding hills.
