The wines produced in the province of Alicante have a reputation for excellence, and with good reason. Protected by Designation of Origin status, the wines come paired with spectacular seascapes and mountain scenery where you can really get away from it all. In Marina Alta, you can discover the wines made with sweet grapes in places like Xaló. The grapes grown in this area are not only used to make wine, but they are also dried to make raisins. If you’re interested in this tradition, you can take a tour of the riuraus, the buildings where the grapes used to be dried.
Afterwards, we recommend visiting the mountainous areas of Cocentaina and Alcoy where you will come across quaint little villages, incredible sights like Covetes dels Moros in Bocairent and - of course - excellent wines.
