I found Valencian Cellar Tours searching the internet. Wasn't quite sure what to expect but the day was excellent. Toni Martin took us door to door from our hotel to the wineries. In Spain tastings are much different as Toni is given carte blanche to tour us through the wineries as well as the tastings. His knowlege was quite impressive and the wines were very good. Our lunch inbetween tastings was at a small restaurant in Requena that you would never find on your own and the food was amazing. My wife and I had a wonderful time and would recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area!!!

Tony Martin was an outstanding tour guide -- extremely knowledgeable about wines, the particular vineyards, the history of the region, restaurants,local dishes, and activities. He was very prompt for the pick-up, is Irish (so English is not a problem), and responsive to the individual needs among the group. The vineyards were about an hour outside of the city. It was a highlight of our time in Valencia.

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.

Highly recommended!
