The winebus in Bodegas Vihucas and Villacañas on Saturday March 16

We do not stop at the Winebus. On this occasion we are going to a winery 70 miles from Madrid on the Andaluçia Road. This winery ant its owner are quite an example to follow when communicating through social media.

That is what they say about themselves.

“Since the 80 ies of last century we are making great wines, innovating in growing grapes, in winemaking, on how to market our products…

Vihucas is a family winery located in Villacañas (Toledo), in the heart of La Mancha. They maintain the tradition of three generations of winemakers, which unites the most important technological innovations, even in  the process to produce high quality wines.

All production comes from 26 hectares of vineyards, including old vines of Cencibel (Tempranillo), Merlot, Graciano, Malvar and Chardonnay. Currently they have a very meticulous production, limited to 100.000 bottles, sold under the Vihucas brand.

After the tour and tasting 3 wines we will eat in a restaurant of Villacañas in wich the price will not exceed 20 euros per person. (not included in the tour price and optional).

Then we will do a guided tour to most emblematic places in Villacañas there it is:

Visit to the Etnographic museum of El Silo

Visit to the Museum of Tía Sandalia

Visit to the Wetlands (birds watching, flamencos included)

In each trip of the winebus we have tried to combine culture, gastronomy and wine. When we visit a small town we find on the locals such a commitment and passion when showing us the place that this makes the visit an amazing experience. And I am sure that this will happen again in Villacañas.

A visit to the Wetlands is quite an unusual kind of visit bit I am sure we will be positively surprised. This already happened when visiting Hoces del Duraton or the Hontanares Wiewpoint in Riaza. Such a combination of activities is what is making people hugging each other even if they know each other since a few hours before.

A hug to everybody.
