Bodegas Faelo

We discovered this great little family run bodegas this week - just south of Elche (about 25 minutes drive from Algorfa). It's a biodynamic (organic) vineyard producing 4 different wines. We did the vineyard tour and tasting for €15 - it included the tour, a glass of each wine they make, and a platter of local meats, cheese, bread with olive oil, and pastries each. Alternatively you can just pop in and buy the wine - all were amazing for the price (€8 - €11 a bottle). You can book the tours via the website:

They harvest the grapes by hand and press them the old fashioned way - by foot! I understand that you can volunteer to help - they usually harvest in September - I would have been there like a shot if we were here!

Now I know this is a lovely little forum and I'm happy for you guys to visit this fab little place, but don't go telling all your friends because the bodegas only make 10,000 bottles a year and I want to make sure they have some left when we come out next!

:cheers:

Definately recommend this lovely little Bodega for a morning/lunch trip. Really relaxed atmosphere, great wines and tapas. Maria, the family friend and guide, we suspect speaks several languages, and was very knowledgeable. Go and enjoy! :niceday:

It's open all year round - Shopping times: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday. And 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Friday


The guided tours run every day but you have to pre-book by phone or e-mail - the details are on their website (see above).

We used Google Maps to find it - the address we plugged in is as follows:

Camino de los Coves, Ptda. Matola, Pol. 3, nº 18, 03296 Elche (Alicante)

It's the Crevillente Estacion junction off the AP7 - turn right and follow the CV875 towards Elche. There's a left turn after the Repsol petrol station and it's signposted (small signs!) from there.

They had their fiesta to mark the end of the harvest on Saturday - it looked amazing! It's definitely going in my diary for next year. Pictures and videos are on their Facebook page.
