Bodegas Franco-Españolas, winner of a ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ award in 2012 for Innovative Wine Tourism Experiences, continues to delight wine tourists with its program of ‘enoactivities’ at the winery.

For September and October, the winery has organized ‘Vendimia en familia’ (Harvest grapes with your family) on September 24 and October 1.  The program starts with an introduction to the different red and white grape varieties in the Franco-Españolas vineyards (conveniently located behind the winery). Participants form groups with some picking red grapes and others, white. The grapes are emptied into small vats where the visitors crush them with their feet, releasing the juice.

Following a midmorning snack, everyone tastes the recently pressed grape juice.  The adults in the group then visit the winery and enjoy a wine tasting while the children play in the ‘eno-nursery’.
