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.

Bodegas Faelo ja Huerto del Cura

Ote-teksti

Matkaohjelma:

Suuntaamme kohti tunnettua Faelon viinitilaa Elcheen, johon on vajaan 1 tunnin matka Torreviejasta. Vierailuun kuuluu opastettu kierros tilalla sekä viinien maistelut artesaani tapas-annosten kera. Tilan kaupasta voit myös ostaa tuotteita kotiin vietäväksi. Viinitilavierailun jälkeen menemme vielä Huerto del Curaan, suojeltuun palmulehtoon Elchessä.

Bodegas Faelo

Perheomisteisella viinitilalla on yli 100 vuoden perinteet viininvalmistuksessa. Nyt on meneillään neljäs artesaaniviininviljelijöiden sukupolvi Matolassa Elchen eteläpuolella.  Vielä vuoteen 2000 asti tilan viiniä ei pullotettu tilalla vaan se myytiin irtotavarana, mutta nykyomistaja Jaime Soto päätti isänsä kanssa yhdistää perinteet ja nykytekniikan viinintuotannossaan. Siitä viinitilan filosofia “Bodegas Faelo Selected Viticulture” sai alkunsa.

Viinitila sijaitsee tyypillisessä maalaistalossa tai “faenetassa”, jolla on yli 100 vuoden historia. Syyskuun alkupuolella tilalla vietetään “Fiesta de La Verema” nimistä juhlapäivää, jolloin voi tallata viinirypäleitä perinteiseen tapaan, kuten ensimmäinen sukupolvi teki yli 100 vuotta sitten.

Huerto del Cura -maailmanperintökohde Elchessä

Faelon tilalta menemme vielä tähän tunnettuun palmulehtoon, joka on todellakin näkemisen arvoinen paikka. Kun näet Huerto del Cura -puiston kasvikokoelmat, patsaat ja eläimet, tulet huomaamaan kuinka ainutlaatuinen paikka maailmassa tämä on.

Arvonta

Meillä on 1.1.2022 tapahtuvassa arvonnassa palkintona pullo pakkauksineen fondillón -viiniä vuodelta 1972, arvo n.400eur.
