Visit the traditional winery Bodegas Faelo

Ote-teksti

Itinerary:

Visit the well-known Faelo winery in Elche, where you will learn about its history, family traditions and methods of winemarking, including wine tasting and an home made tapas lunch. There are many wines and products available at their shop.

Bodegas Faelo

This family-owned winery has more than 100 years of tradition in winemaking and it is situated in Matola, south of Elche.  Before 2000, Bodegas Faelo wine would not bottle in-house, and was only sold in bulk, but Jaime Soto, owner of Bodegas Faelo, along with his father, decided to combine tradition and technological advances in winemaking. As winegrowers, Bodegas Faelo respect the natural environment and traditions, as well as biodynamic and selected viticulture, taking care of their vineyards in a natural way, avoiding pesticides and fungicides as far as possible. This is  “Bodegas Faelo Selected Viticulture” philosophy.

The winery is located in a typical country house or “faeneta” with more than 100 years of history. Towards the end of September, the winery celebrates a harvest festival called “Fiesta de La Verema”, where you can, among other things, trample grapes in the traditional way, as the first generation did more than 100 years ago using the same equipment.
