WINE TRIP May 2019

We are delighted to announce that the 2019 trip will depart from Javea on Monday 6th May returning on the evening of Friday 10th May

This year we have chosen the DO of Somontano in the region of Aragon and near the foothills of the Spanish Pyrenees. We will be based in the beautiful town of Barbastro

In planning this trip we have responded to suggestions we need to slow down the pace a bit, so we have allowed more time for exploring and relaxing. That is not to say the quality of the programme is diminished. We will be visiting some really exciting bodegas including the oldest one in the region and also one that is producing wine from grapes on the verge of extinction. The wines we tasted there blew us away they were so good.

Enate is the biggest and most famous producer in the area but it is big and impersonal. We can also buy their wines anywhere. For these reasons we will not be visiting Enate but we will taste their wines during the course of our stay.

We will be staying in the Gran Hotel Ciudad de Barbastro and we expect the price to be around €460.00  per person sharing a twin/double or €550  in a single. The price includes transport, 4 nights bed and breakfast, 4 lunches, 1 dinner and 2 tapas meals.

Bookings will run from Tuesday November 27th until December 10th and should be made with Sandy Fawle at sandyfawle@gmail.com  Sandy will confirm that she has received your booking and definite places will be offered after the booking period has closed.  A deposit of €100 will then be payable.

If oversubscribed, places will be allocated in the following priority:

  1. Organisers & Committee members 2018/2019
  2. Those who attended 5 or more meetings in 2018
  3. The remainder in order of booking

If undersubscribed, bookings will be left open until all places (34) are taken.   A reserve list would then be established.

We do hope you will join us on what we anticipate will be an exciting and varied trip.
