Wine tours around Alicante

Bodega Maserof in AlicanteAlicante restaurants conjure up delicious cuisine, so what could be finer than accompanying your meal with a local wine? The region has many fine bodegas producing award-winning young wines at amazingly low prices.

Although Alicante is rightly famous for its golden, sandy beaches, it is also a beautiful rural retreat. Head away from the beach resorts and you will be in beautiful countryside surrounded by fruit trees heavy with cherries, oranges, lemons, grapefruits and olives, as well as vineyards to make a delicious selection of wines. As you travel around the countryside, you will see many vineyards, producing a range of reds, whites and the sweet muscatel or mistela wines.

Treading the grapes

At Maserof bodega, you even have the chance to join in the traditional barefoot treading of the grapes during the autumn harvest. Many others offer guided tours and wine tasting so you can find out more about the varieties and how they are produced.

Alicante has a long history of wine growing which is thought to date back to Roman times.Wine barrels at Bodegas Xalo, Jalon Valley, Alicante ines were exported to northern Europe. Spain’s fine wines are enjoying a revival for their flavour and their price.

The Alicante region’s good soil, mild climate and relative humidity make the area ripe for wine-making. Although there are many varieties of grape, the most established and best-known are Muscat de Alexandria, Monastrell, and Alicante Bouschet. There are also sparkling wines made with muscat, which are great value for money.

Where to visit in Japan?

I am going to Japan for around 3 weeks and was wondering where people recommend I visit. I am locking in around 10 days in Tokyo, when my friend will be there, but am wanting advice as to how I should spend the rest of my time. I am keen to spend some time in Kyoto but there is clearly so much else to do and I'm struggling to figure out exactly what.

While I am interested in visiting some shrines and temples, I can only do that for so long. I really appreciate beautiful sceneries and cool cities. If anyone has been to Japan and were blown away by some places, or really…

Hello Nick, The must see places in Japan are Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Kanazawa, Takayama, shirakawago, Hiroshima and Miyajima. Pick up a good travel guide like Lonely Planet Japan before you visit as this will help you plan your trip to see and Do in Japan

Day trips in Japan, suggestions?

I have multiple questions.

Should I go on a trip to Hokkaido by myself or find some friends to go with?
On that same Hokkaido trip, should I extend it to include some parts of Tohoku?
If I do, what are some good things to do in Tohoku?

Other things to do:
I want to travel a bit more, and thinking perhaps day or two day trips might be a good idea.
Where are some good places to go? My home base is Osaka.
Please no suggestions for around Kansai, because I'm waiting until August when I can get a 3 day Kansai Spring Pass which will let…

I live in Hokkaido.
I think that I had better see the sights of Hokkaido for three days if you can run.
Tohoku region is the same, too.
Where is the spot that you want to see the sights of?
If movement time and distance, the time of the train want to know it, please ask me a question.
About the contents of a concrete schedule, I think that I can give you some advice.

Have you been to JAPAN. tips, help, guide me plz.?

Hi, I'm 19 and I really x99 wanna go to japan, by myself for atleast 1 whole week. I really wanna ask a few stuff.
aside from the plain ticket. how much money should I bring?
how much clothes should I pack(do they have laundry mats?)
what's the best time to go there? month/season?
aside from a hotel, like maybe, are there people willing to take gaijins(foreigners) in their houses?

so I dont wanna go on further. just give me tips and guides or how you survived your trip to japan.

I make one suggestion to all newbies to Japan.That is travel light.Even in winter you should not overload yourself with clothes/luggage (a major hassle on trains/shinkansen).Summer is very humid and hot, it is best to avoid cotton clothes and wear the new age materials that outdoor shops sell.They are easy to hand wash and dry very quickly.Take deodorant from home with you.Spring and Autumn are great , take casual clothes and layer for the cooler days.Winter can vary from very cool (depends on where you are) to freezing and below. For example, in January 2010 I was at the top of Mt. Aso…
