Situated not far from us here just outside Cuenca is Bodega Aurum Wine and they have a rather special Aurum Red Gold. Their production is tiny at only 300 bottles a year but only half that number are available for sale. If you do decided to buy one it will cost you around £25000 – but don’t worry that does include delivery to your door!! To read the very interesting story from the BBC click here

Appreciating good wines since 1992

The society was founded by Anton Massel a former oenologist who decided he wanted to give wine tasting a wider audience and in 1992 formed the Costa Blanca Wine Society.

Our constitution sets out the objectives and activities of the Society which can be summarised as: increasing knowledge and appreciation of Spanish wines through meetings, tastings and visits to wine producing centres.   The Society is organised to meet these objectives.
