Following a very successful and enjoyable day’s visit of members of the Moraira-Teulada U3A Wine Group to the Bodegas Castaño winery at Yecla in the north of Murcia in June, the leaders of the Wine Group, Brian and Pat Clarke, invited the winery to make a presentation at their monthly wine appreciation meeting in September 2018.
Raquel Ortuño, assisted by her colleague Noelia, from Bodegas Castaño gave a very informative presentation of the different wines to the 80 members of the U3A attending at the Bar Mediterráneo in Teulada.
This was the first time the group had tasted wines from the Yecla region of Spain and they certainly proved to be very popular. Members had the opportunity of tasting two whites, one rosado and three reds, including a barrel-aged red from the more expensive Castaño Colección.
Everyone attending enjoyed the wines as well as the excellent presentation provided by Raquel.
There was a raffle with many prize bottles available to the lucky winners.
