    Da jeg var i Benidorm med det søde Visit Benidorm team inviterede de os med til fantastisk vin smagning i Alicante. Det var en kæmpe oplevelse, og min første rigtig vinsmagning! Jeg er sikker på, at det var noget min far ville have elsket. Det gjorde kun oplevelsen endnu federe, at jeg kunne tænke på min søde far, så en dag må jeg have ham med – så kan vi dele den fede oplevelse sammen.

    Vi besøgte den smukke Enrique Mendoza vingård som ligger i de fineste rolige omgivelser. Det er en familie drevet virksomhed som har eksperimenteret og produceret deres egen vin siden 1989. Nu driver de deres vin gård som en fuldtids beskæftigelse med i alt 4 ansatte på fuld tid. De producere i alt 500.000 flasker vin om året, og går utrolig højt op i god kvalitet og det at støtte lokal området. Min kæreste og jeg gør det samme med vores restaurant Lazy Dog, så det har jeg kæmpe respekt for, da jeg ved hvor meget extra arbejde, penge, tid og kræfter der kan ligge i det, da det ikke nødvendigvis er det nemmeste.

    When I was in Benidorm with the sweet Visit Benidorm team they invited us to a fantastic wine tasting in Alicante. It was a huge experience and my first real wine tasting! I’m sure it was something my dad would have loved. That only made the experience even bette because I could think of my sweet father so one day I have to bring him along – so we can share that amazing experience together.

    We visited the beautiful Enrique Mendoza vineyard located in the finest relaxing surroundings. It is a family-run company that has experimented and produced their own wine since 1989. Now they run their wine yard as a full-time thing with 4 full full-time employees. They produce a total of 500,000 bottles of wine a year pay a lot of attention to have a really high and good quality and to support the local area. My boyfriend and I do the same with our Lazy Dog restaurant, so I have a lot of respect for them, because I know how much extra work, money, time and effort that can be, as it’s not necessarily the easiest.

    Vi kom med dem om bag kulisserne og så “behind the scenes”, hvordan deres produktion fungere. Vi startede med at få deres søde historie i de mest idylliske omgivelser midt i vin markerne. Enrique Mendoza startede vingården i sin tid og nu står han søn Pepe for at det køre rundt. Det ber spændende at høre om hvordan de driver deres business og se hvor meget de brænder for, at være unikke og lave en udsøgt god vin. Det er tydligt at de ved hvad de laver, og de gør det godt!

    Efter vi hørte om deres historie viste os deres mange tønder vin, som de har opmagasineret i kælderen. Her står de så fint i smukke træ tønder og læger i tønderne i minimum 1 år, før de kommer på flaske. Tønderne gemmer de og bruger igen – de kan bruges op til 5 gange, før de ikke kan mere.

    They brought us behind the scenes and we saw how their production works. We started out getting their sweet history in the most idyllic setting amidst the vineyards. Enrique Mendoza started the vineyard in his time and now he’s son Pepe is making sure the place is a success. It’s exciting to hear about how they run their business and see how passionate they are, what thye are doing to be unique and all the work it takes to making an excellent wine. It is clear that they know what they are doing and they do it well!

    After hearing their story, we were showed their many barrels of wine which are stored in their basement. Here the wooden barrels are looking beautiful, and here the wine stay in the barrels for a minimum of 1 year before they get bottled. The barrels then gets cleaned and used again – they can be used up to 5 times.

    Man bliver overvældet over hvor mange tønder her er, og hvor stort et areal de har brug for. Det var en fed oplevelse at se og det er noget jeg vildt gerne vil prøve igen. Det bedste af hele oplevelsen var at høre hvor engagerede de er og hvor stor en passion de har for at lave områdets bedste vin.

    You get overwhelmed by how many barrels there are and how much area they need to store it all. It was a great experience to see and visiting a wine yard is something I for sure need to try again. The best of the whole experience was to hear how committed they are and how much passion they have for making the area’s best wine.

    Vi havde den bedste tid her, og jeg hjalp det søde kærestepar Jannik og Lesley med at filme lidt til hans youtube, og de var simpelthen det skønneste kæreste par. De gjorde turen super sjov! De bor i Belgien, så når jeg skal derhen igen, så bliver jeg nød til at besøge dem.

    We had the best time here and I helped the sweetest couple Jannik and Lesley to film a little for their youtube. They are they seriously the cutest. They made the trip great fun! They live in Belgium so when I go there again, I will have to visit them.

    Efter vi havde hørt om deres produktion etc. var det tid til at smage deres vin (oh yes!). Det var himmelsk, og svært at finde en favorit da jeg er kæmpe vin elsker. MEN deres desert vin som havde en forfriskende, frugtig og lidt sødlig smag var lige mig! Kom nok til at få et par glas, da den gik så godt med det lækre tapas de havde stillet an for os. Kæmpe oplevelse, som jeg helt klart kan anbefale jer, hvis i en dag skal på ferie i Alicante.

    After hearing about their production etc. it was time to taste their wine (oh yes!). It was heavenly and hard to find a favorite because I am a huge wine lover. BUT their desert wine that had a refreshing, fruity and slightly sweet flavour was just me! I think I got a few glasses because it went well with the delicious tapas they had made for us. Huge experience, which I can definitely recommend to you, if you are going on a holiday in Alicante one day.
