Next Wine Trip – May 2022


Dear Members
After 2 years without a trip, the Wine Trip Team are delighted to announce that we have organised a visit to DO Montsant in the province of Tarragona for 3 nights beginning on Monday May 2.
We last visited this region as a group in 2009 and everyone who was on that trip will confirm that it is a beautiful area producing some excellent wines.  We will visit four bodegas ranging from small producers to a medium sized cooperative, all with their own unique qualities.
We will travel by coach from Javea and spend 3 nights in Hostal Sport in the town of Falset  which is the centre of the Montsant DO. (www.hotelpriorat-hostalsport.com/ca). We will enjoy 2 dinners and a lunch together which will include wines from the DO and a presentation from a local producer.  The Trip will also include a visit to a local slate mine and the Falset Museum.
As time is short we would ask those of you who are interested in joining us on this trip to contact me:  sandyfawle@gmail.com immediately to confirm your interest. As soon as we have an idea of numbers we will confirm your place and request a deposit. Accounts have not yet been finalized but at this stage we would expect the cost to be around €450 per person.
In past years, if the trip was oversubscribed, places were allocated based on the number of tastings attended. At this stage we are asking everyone who wishes to join us to let me know as soon as possible irrespective of tastings attended. If we are oversubscribed we will advise you quickly if we are still able to offer you a place on the trip.
We look forward to hearing from you and are excited that we are once again able to visit bodegas together.
