Yecla Wine Route, in collaboration with the Yecla City Council and the Yecla Dop, organize the " Virtual Tastings 2020 " on the occasion of World Wine Tourism Day , an activity scheduled for the next 21 and 28 November.
From Ruta del Vino de Yecla, we know that staying home is one of the most effective measures to stop the spread of the virus, and what better way than learning about wineries, vineyards and pairings.
To do this, we have organized an agenda of virtual meetings led by Javier López. Javier López is a professional Sommelier , specialized in "tasting techniques" and "sensory analysis", he has an extensive curriculum in Custom Training, Continuous Training and Occupational Training. Always betting on the knowledge and dissemination of our gastronomic and nutritional values through tastings and tastings. Most of its activities are carried out in the environment, where participation and mutual learning are encouraged at all times, updating popular knowledge without losing its flavors.
Its proposals are entertaining and fun, highlighting its tastings, especially those of wines and oils, as well as its workshops on harmonies (pairings), all of them very original. Workshops in which he seeks to discover the most subtle and pleasant sensations, guaranteeing experiences that go directly to the senses. His trajectory, at the service of companies and institutions designing online and product strategies in areas of tourism associated with wine, culture and gastronomy, creating novel experiences of value, position him as one of the most dynamic sommeliers in terms of design of product and communication is concerned.
For these days we have planned a pack consisting of 4 bottles of wine and 2 crystal glasses that we will send home plus access to online tasting and various raffles that will take place during the two days. Every Saturday at 12:30 pm, you can attend the virtual tasting of two wines from home.
The proposed wines:
- FILARMONIA MSM Ecological from Bodegas La Purísima
- MARÍA SARMIENTO from Bodegas Evine
- BH ORGANIC BARRICA 2017 from Bodegas Barahonda
- HECULA 2019 by Bodegas Castaño
Escape for two to Yecla VR: Accommodation, lunch and winery visit or two lunches/dinners for two in a Yecla VR partner establishment.
The way to follow the tasting will be through the ZOOM platform. And the approximate duration will be about 60 minutes. It should be remembered that this event will be available only for people over 18 years old
We will not only taste the wines, but we will also talk about pairing, wine tourism and we will solve all those doubts that may arise about our wines or destination.
The shipping of the packs will be available for the entire Iberian Peninsula, with the price of the pack being € 25, unique and indivisible. Your purchase will be available until November 25, but it is important that if you want to participate in both days, you purchase your pack before November 18. Once the pack is purchased, the customer will receive an email with all the steps to follow.
The purchase will be made through the murciaturistica.es platform and the tastings can be accessed through a mobile terminal or a computer.
