The Paella can only be savoured where it comes from originally: Valencia
The “authentic” Paella Valenciana: consisting of rice, chicken, rabbit, ferraura (green beans) and garrofó (white beans) and sometimes snails. It is a typical dish during the weekend for many families in Valencia. And one important thing: it´s best eaten for LUNCH and shared with families and friends right out of the typical paella pan with a good wine or beer.
Many places offer paella and variations like “arroz a banda”, “arroz negro”, “arroz con bogavante” or “arroz con verduras”. But finding the right location is a difficult task.
Not only the wines from the Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Penedés with its Cava or Ribeiro vineyards offer genuine spanish indulgence.
Requena/Utiel, approximately 80 Km/1 hour drive from Valencia, is well known in Spain for delicious and refreshing wines. A selected number of “Bodegas” offer special guided tours with wine tasting sessions. Also the “embutido – local coldcuts” offer specialities from the region.
Combine a day trip out of town with a tasitng of local wines in one of the vineyards. With us you do not have to worry about having “one” above the limit.
