We had a lovely day on July 17th with Toni as our guide. First a visit to Chozas Carrascal winery and then to the town of Requena. Toni is very knowledgeable and made the day so interesting for our party of four. Highly recommended!
Thanks for a great day Toni.

A 5-hour trip to the winery Chozas Carrascal, and the little town Requena. We booked a private tour with Toni to one of the wineyards near Valencia. We wanted to learn more about winemaking, and a search on Tripadvisor recomanded this trip. Toni picked us up at the hotel, and we had a nice drive to the winery. Toni is an excellent wine guide, his knowledge of wine is outstanding. The winery is beautiful, and we got to taste and buy som excellent wines. We can highly recommand this wine tour. Thank you, Toni, for a wonderful day.

Tony (the proprietor and tour guide) took a group of 3 of us on a fantastic tour of a beautiful bodega in the Utiel Requena wine region. The Mercede's transport was very comfortable, and Tony was happy to talk wine throughout the journey. His tour was in depth and very interesting. Tony is an extremely knowledgeable, personable guy, and what he doesn't know about wine, is not worth knowing. He is also more than happy to answer your questions. The bodega visit itself was great, and the wine tasting at the end was very relaxed. We had plenty of time to taste various wines, paired with various tapas including some lovely Spanish cured meats, salty snacks, cheese and the bodega's tremendous home made artisan olive oil, smeared over lovely fresh bread. Also, we tried a dessert wine with dark chocolate. All in all this was a wonderful experience, and I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Valencia, who has a passion for all things wine, to contact Tony to arrange a tour. Tony is able to tailor your tour as required and hence the experience is far more personal, and hence far superior to some of the large scale, coach tours that I have been on in other wine regions. Thank you Tony!

We have booked a private tour with Tony to one of the vineyards in the region of Valencia. It was an hour away from the city and Tony has picked up us from the cafe very close to the flat where we stayed. I highly recommend booking this trip while your are visiting Valencia and I wholeheartedly recommend booking it with Tony. He has massive amount of knowledge about the region, the wine growing and making process and he also is very generous while pouring wine during the tasting :)
On our way back we stopped in a small city had a little walk with some additional explanations from Tony and been able to buy lovely meets in the local shop!

Very good day !

Since our cruise ship was only going to be in Valencia for the day, I wanted to get the most out of our time. That meant looking for an alternative to the typical cruise ship bus tour of 40 people or more. Valencian Cellar’s website caught my eye. From the very first email (and all those that followed), Toni promptly answered my questions and worked with me to customize a tour. Toni was waiting for our group of 4 at the cruise ship terminal when the ship docked. Our tour began with a walk through the Central Market (Mercado Central) to enjoy the colorful selections of produce, fish, and meats. Then we were off to Requena, enjoying both the ride through the countryside and Tony’s commentary. The organic family-owned winery was lovely, where much of the wine production is still done by hand. No mass production here! Toni walked us through each step of the wine-making process. Toni provided a private tour of the various rooms, starting with the tanks where the grapes are brought in from the fields, the production hall, the cellar where the wine is aged in oak barrels, and finally the bottling area. We then moved to the Tasting Salon. Toni brought out plates of Iberian charcouteria, Manchego cheese, and local Spanish almonds to enjoy with a variety of wines and Cava. What a tasting! Even if you fancy yourself a wine aficionado, you’ll learn something new from Toni, who is a walking Wikipedia when it comes to grapes and wine! I found myself with a newfound appreciation of how those little grapes end up in my wine glass. It was a very relaxing and personal experience. We then headed back to Valencia for a walking tour of the sights we had requested before Toni returned us to the cruise ship terminal. Toni went above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect day. The cost was competitive with a mass-produced tour, so thumbs-up on value too. Thank you, Toni!
