Out and About – Wine Tasting in Jesus Pobre

Guided visit to the Les Freses Winery.

Visit  Celler Les Freses, a family run winery situated in Jesus Pobre, between Javea and Denia.

The owner is Mara Bañó who opted for viticulture when acquiring a strawberry farm in the 1970s. Apparently it did not work too well and so Mara turned the farm into what  we know today as  Les Freses , giving its name to this 100% Muscat of Alexandria wine.

Cultivation without irrigation

Mara Bañó clarifies that the microclimate that is created on the north slope of the Montgó massif natural park allows them to grow without irrigation.

Guided visits

Very close to the Celler Les Freses , there is l’Alt de Benimàquia, considered one of the oldest vineyards for wine production in the Iberian Peninsula.

Celler Les Freses offers the chance to discover how great Spanish wines are made wine, to discover how history, agriculture and nature come together through wine. This winery turns the passion of making wine into a philosophy and an ethical commitment.

For a small price of 12€ you can enjoy a guided tour of all its facilities and taste its excellent wines accompanied by tapas. Other tours are also available. (See website link below)
