Outline of Activities
On Saturday morning, there will be a guided visit to Valencia’s Central Market in the Old Town, followed by a visit to a local winery, Bodegas Hispano-Suizas, where we will experience traditional valencian meats and tapas paired with regional wines from this representative vineyard. On Saturday evening, a tasting menu together with a selection of prize-winning wines will be presented to you, prepared by 2 Michelin Star Chef, Ricard Camarena at a private event in the Mercado de Colon.
On Sunday morning, the formalities of the Annual General Meeting will take place, but there should be time to stroll around the area of the promenade and harbour. At 12 noon, we will depart from the hotel and be taken on a boat tour around the rice fields followed by a traditional Valencian Paella for lunch. The event will end at about 4.00pm and we will get back to the hotel around 5.00pm.
