Alicante and Moscatel revived

Rocky soils at Casa Agrícola, Marina Alta, Alicante

Marvel at what's been going on inland from Dénia on the Costa Blanca.

La Marina Alta is the northernmost area of Alicante in south-east Spain. It borders Valencia to the north and is a very popular summertime destination thanks to plentiful beaches and attractive destinations such as Xàbia and Dénia. The seafood here, by the way, is superb. Dénia is probably the most important coastal town in Marina Alta, and is internationally known thanks to the starred chef Quique Dacosta and the restaurant that bears his name. This sunny region is a paradise for tourists.

In terms of wine...
