About Bodegas Calvente
“Bodegas H. Calvente is a small, artisanal winery. Craftsmanship and low production allow us to strive for true excellence in the end product: singular wines with a distinct personality. That is what makes our wine so exclusive.
The secret lies in the terroir of the old vineyards that grow on a few hectares of land in La Guindalera and Castillejos, and the influence of unique microclimate. The altitude of the area and the sea breeze moderate the temperatures while the grapes are ripening. The slow and balanced maturation achieves a perfect balance in the characteristics of our vines.
The land and climate of this area is rare, so our grapes are completely different from the same varieties grown in other areas. Our centuries-old vineyards are not irrigated. They produce less than 4000 kg of grapes per hectare, allowing us to obtain exceptionally high-quality grapes.
In Bodegas H. Calvente, we select our grapes manually and patiently. We allow them to ferment naturally, focusing on originality and personality. With the grapes that nature offers us, we create unique, unrepeatable wines, unlike any other wine on the market.”

As this is an evening event, you may not wish to drink and drive so we can provide accommodation at a VERY reasonable rate in our course venue. So, come and have a mini-break, enjoy some lovely wine and good company and see the beautiful village of Moclín.
The wine tasting will cost 20€ per head and if you'd like to stay the night at our venue, that will be another 20€ per head (including breakfast) - bargain! Pay us on the night of the event.
