We arranged an all-day wine tour with Toni Martin, who runs a wine and bike tour agency. We alerted him that one of our six-person group was quite knowledgeable, and Toni rose to the occasion. He selected two wineries in the Requena area, one hour west of Valencia, and provided a van and lunch to create a memorable day of wine-tasting. He knows a tremendous amount about wine in general and Spanish and Valencian wines in particular, and did an outstanding job of explaining the wine-making process and answering questions about varietals and techniques. He also knows the local winemakers, adding a personal touch to the experience.
Our tour included a lovely three-course lunch (with wine, of course!) at a restaurant right on the old square in Requena. We tried the local Gaspacho Manchego, a stew of chicken, rabbit, and dumplings that we would never have known about otherwise.
Toni was very attentive to the needs of our group, which included two people with limited mobility. He is also an avid biker, and runs bicycle tours of the city, although we didn't have time to participate in one.
