This annual event honoring St. Joseph, Valencia's patron saint, typically features over 700 magnificent fallas or papier maché creations, some over 30 feet tall. The incredulous 3 day celebration involves the entire city of 700,000 inhabitants and includes parades and multiple firework displays and religious processions. It culminates in the burning of all the Fallas on midnight March 19, St Joseph's Day.
The Wine Lovers tour starts March 17 in Valencia and includes visits to the wine regions of Jumilla and Yecla.
From Valencia the tour proceeds to Barcelona, visiting the wine regions of Priorato and Montsant as well as the cava sparkling wine region of Penedes. The tour ends March 24 in Barcelona.
The all-inclusive tour features include 3 nights in Valencia and 4 nights in Barcelona in deluxe hotels, most meals with wine, guided tours of Valencia and Barcelona, VIP winery visits and airport transfers. The cost is $3459 per person, double occupancy.
Vin Marottoli, President of Wine Lovers Tours, personally organizes and leads each tour. He has over 30 years experience with Wine Lovers Tours and most of his tours have over 80% repeat travellers.
Vin has a PhD in Franch and in addition he is fluent in Spanish and Italian. Tour alumni come from throughout the United States and since the very beginning Vin has never cancelled a tour so participants are never disappointed to get a trip cancelled letter because of too few participants. Vin's groups typically have 15/20 participants but occasionally as few as 4.
