The councilor of tourism Jesús Verdú and the president of the Yecla Wine Route Juan Pedro Castaño have presented the second edition of the Envero de la Monastrell 2018:

Wine Route of Yecla, in collaboration with the DOP of Yecla and the Department of Tourism, Culture and Celebrations, organize " El Envero de la Monastrell " on July 6 and 7 in the Parque de la Constitución and on the esplanade of the Church of San Francisco.

The veraison represents a transition between the growth of the grape and its maturation. The process takes place in the summer and can be considered the beginning of a countdown that allows to calculate approximately, after about 45-50 days, the moment of the harvest. In this way, RVY wants to welcome this stage and the summer, celebrating an activity that will not leave anyone indifferent.

To begin, on Friday, July 6 , starting at 8:00 p.m. in the Parque de la Constitución, we can taste the magnificent wines of the associated wineries, paired with delicious tapas prepared by the establishments belonging to the RVY.

From 22:00 h., There will be a summer cinema in the San Francisco esplanade, where we can enjoy the movie "A walk among the clouds", an attractive love story impossible with beautiful natural scenery and full of charm.

On Saturday, July 7 , in order to promote emerging art and wine culture, we will have, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. approximately, at the Parque de la Constitución, the First Intervention Contest of Outdoor Barrels. Contest directed by the Yeclan artist Emilio Pascual, where the works will consist mainly of the barrels themselves or their constituent elements, these being the object of any kind of manipulation. The technique is therefore free, so that, by way of example, the barrels can be painted or pyrographed, but also dismantled, their staves, metal rings and lids, sawing, bending and reassembling. The prizes established for this contest will be: a first prize of € 500 courtesy of the City of Yecla; a second prize of € 300 awarded by the CRDO and a third prize of € 200 awarded by the Wine Route of Yecla. The group of participating artists will be published on the Ruta del Vino website (www.rutadelvinoyecla.com) in the coming days.

Starting at 8:00 p.m. the works of art already completed, will be exhibited in the Parque de la Constitución for the delight of all attendees, where we will enjoy the awards ceremony, tasting the wines and tapas, raffles and many more surprises.

Finally, starting at 10 p.m., we will be able to enjoy the best live music with "Loveloopers", a Yeclana band composed by the singer, guitarist and composer Patricia Candela and by Rël, multi instrumentalist, producer and music activist .
