The gastronomy and wines of the region you are visiting represent an important constituent of your holiday-making.
Alicante’s gastronomy is unique and diverse – it includes delicious rice dishes, sea products, various fish – fresh, salted and dried, cheeses and sweets traditional for the region. It would be uncomplicated and even unforgivable to come to the Costa Blanca coast for holiday and not to taste local culinary masterpieces or not to enjoy local wines.
Alicante’s wines, though not so famous as the wines of the other regions of Spain – La Rioja or Rueda – are yet worthy of being presented.
The sun of the Mediterranean and the gentle sea breeze are just these unique factors to which the local grapes owe their specific flavour and surprising freshness.
