The 10th Wine and Tapa Route, for obvious reasons, this year will have to delay its execution date in its traditional format, so instead, the Yecla Wine Route in collaboration with the Yecla City Council and the Regulatory Council of the DO Yecla , proposes the Wine and Tapa Route "Home edition" , an innovative contest where you will be in charge of proposing the perfect pairing, sending us your tapas proposal paired with a wine from the four associated wineries (Barahonda , Bodegas Castaño, Evine and La Purísima).
The contest will start on March 1 and will close on Saturday, March 27, with the delivery of the "Golden Cover" for the best cover, and an honorable mention to the second and third covers, prizes awarded by a single jury composed of through the bars and restaurants associated with the Yecla Wine Route. In other words, this year we turned the tables.
To participate, you just have to send us your videos or photographs with your tapas and pairing proposals to:
You can see the participants in: Tapas and pairings proposed by the routers on the Wine Route and the tapa Home Edition
