PRUNING: Expert guidance
Conducted tours of Benitachell’s vineyards have continued through the winter months.
The tours are organised by the town hall’s Economic Promotion department and growers involved in the local BioMoscatell project.
Those who sign up get a comprehensive picture of all the processes involved in producing the town’s distinctive – and organic – muscatel wine.
The latest participants were able to talk to the growers about winemaking and also try their hand at pruning the vines, a task habitually carried out at this time of the year.
Afterwards they sampled grape juice and the raisins that have always been produced in the Marina Alta, rounding off the tour with a visit to the bodega where the Moraig white wine is produced.
“This is the best way to see the project from the inside and learn more about the expectations of all the people involved in this new vision of muscatel cultivation in Benitachell,” said Economic Promotion councillor Manolo Segarra.
