Enjoy a complimentary tasting of what is regarded as one of the best Champagne houses in the world.
Optional Yachting Land Adventures :
Wine Tasting in Unspoiled Ibiza
Although Ibiza is a relatively small island, it has much more to offer than the, rather frenetic, Ibiza Town. This adventure takes us across the island to the unspoiled north-west area where Ibiza is rural and the area is surrounded by mountains. Delight in Ibiza’s incredible sights and flavors on a guided tour to Can Rich cellars, the largest winery on the island, with a wide variety of wines, olive oil, and herbal liqueur, where you will learn about the producing and blending process responsible for the perfection of quality wine.
From the beginning of civilization, Ibiza has been a place of passage and meeting for different cultures which left their mark in such ways as the cultivation of the vines and the production of pottery. Ibiza’s winemaking tradition reaches back at least as far as the time of the Phoenicians, who introduced the cultivation of the vines, attracted by the fertility of the land and the island’s good climate. Probably, the winemaking process has not changed much since then, since it has been passed down from father to son by oral tradition, being maintained almost up to our times. Our tour takes us to the Can Rich vineyard. After the tasting, we will make a panoramic in Sant Antony de Portmany before to return to Ibiza town.
Ronda Wine Experience
One of Spain’s oldest cities, located in the Andalusian mountains and 750 meters above sea level, Ronda stills displays aspects of its ancient Roman origins. This historic town has been a much-loved destination for many painters, architects and creative artists; including Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway. The best way to explore Ronda is on foot and throughout your guided walking tour you will pass several of the city’s highlights; including the ‘Puente Nuevo’ (New Bridge), which is said to symbolize the soul of the city.
Having visited the city center, you will discover one unique wine cellar in the area. “Descalzos Viejos” (the aged barefoot monks) was founded in the year 2000 and specially restored for the purpose of winemaking by the architects Francisco Retamero and Flavio Salesi and their respective wives, Chelo Porras and Mariela Grana. It is situated in the chapel of a sixteenth-century Trinitarian monastery. In this building, perched on the higher slopes of the impressive Tajo of Ronda (the famous Gorge), they make wine from the 5.5 hectares of vineyards that have been planted on this property, and other 5 hectares inward. During the visit, you will taste three types of wines, accompanied with some snacks.
