Cazatur will make sure you will experience the Spanish traditions with style. Being at the Ventosilla Castle or at the Quintanar Palace. Upon your arrival and after getting organized in your designated room, enjoy a welcome cocktail, serving Spanish wines as well as all international drinks, while enjoying typical Spanish “tapas” like; Jamón Iberico, manchego cheese and many others…
Continuing the Spanish shooting tradition every morning for breakfast, you will enjoy the famous “migas” (lightly fried bread crumbs) with fried eggs, Spanish chorizo and crispy bacon, orange juice, tea, coffee, and pastries are also available, or any other way of cooked eggs.
After breakfast, the drawing of the shooting position for the day is done following the “Tomeloff system”; were you draw a number for the day, which will make you move in or out of the numbered line in the drive two positions to the right every drive, in order for all shooters, to have access to the center of the drive as well as to the outside. This method also allows you, to change shooting neighbors throughout the day. After this, the shooting party is off to the surrounding shooting grounds.
Between drives, another tradition, is to offer you, The Taco; a time to visit with your friends and shooters about the previous drive, bid yellow each other, and get better acquainted, and while enjoying this moment, allow the beaters to move to the next location from where they are going to blink in the birds for the following drive.
Enjoy a glass of red or chilled white wine, sit for a moment, and relax while you visit with your old or new friend, with whom you are experiencing this wonderful time, see the “secretarios” your assistants, bring in the retrieved birds from the drive. What can be nicer than having a delicious partridge broth, a sherry wine, a Spanish tortilla, some jamón ibérico, filled sweet red peppers, olives, manchego cheese and all those delicious “tapas” Spain is famous for?
Lunch is served at an outdoor location and is a grand event surrounded by the Spanish countryside. It offers the chance to visit about the mornings drives and enjoy a break before the evening drives. The food is delicious served by attendants offering snacks (tapas), full meal with appropriate beverages and ambiance.
Dinners, are served in the main dining room, after a cocktail in the living room. We like to suggest at least one evening to dress up specially to allow the ladies in the line to “look pretty”. Cocktail attire, is good enough for that evening, so we can have pictures taken at a beautiful set table, and allow the men, enjoying a brandy and a cigar!
