marzipan workshop

We will visit the oldest marzipan’s bakery of Toledo. Here they are still respecting the old recipes inherited from the purest tradition to offer the most exquisite and delicate marzipan sweets.

 

The activity begins with a tour of the workshop where you can see the different stages of production:  from the almonds´ grinding with sugar and honey for marzipan paste, to the sophistication of the decoration of the “eels”.

 

At one point, visitors can participate in some activities of the production work. Finally there will be a small tasting of the products manufactured on site.


fincas loranque (winery visit, tasting & lunch)

An oenotouristic experience in unique surroundings. Finca Loranque organizes guided tours, during which visitors will be able to learn about the elaboration, aging and stabilising processes of the “estate wines”.

 

Visitors will be given the opportunity to learn about the art of viticulture in detail, in a unique environment: a 200 year old winery, surrounded by a carefully tended vineyard planted with the most prestigious varieties of grapes.

 

A guided tour all over the winery, accompanied by the professionals who make our wines. The tour is made on foot, whilst our guests listen to the explanation of the winemaking process. Includes a commented tasting of 3 wines and lunch.
