Everything is already underway to toast together. The Yecla Wine Route (Murcia), together with the City Council and the areas of Tourism, Culture and Celebrations of Yecla, has prepared a very special weekend on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 November in commemoration of World Wine Tourism Day .
After this difficult time due to the global pandemic, wine tourism and oil tourism are once again consolidating in Yecla (Murcia), where a harvest of about 9 million kilos is expected in 2021. Through the universe that surrounds its wines – the 'Yecla denomination of origin' dates back to 1972 – the city offers a unique experience of culture, history, nature and gastronomy. The Yecla Wine Route has four wineries (Barahonda, Bodegas Castaño, La Purísima and Bodegas Evine), the Almazara Deortegas, 40 associates and about twenty restaurants and rural accommodation located among vineyards where the charismatic Monastrell grape reigns. In the surroundings, there are also archaeological sites, a Roman winery from the 1st and 3rd centuries AD and the imposing Mount Arabí, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Very attractive plans to enjoy the great wine tourism that Spain offers.
November 12 and 13: great weekend for World Wine Tourism Day
On the occasion of World Wine Tourism Day (November 8), an initiative of the European Network of Wine Cities (RECEVIN) to which Rutas del Vino España and the Spanish Association of Wine Cities (ACEVIN) have joined, the Ruta del Vino de Yecla (Murcia) once again organizes a great party with various events.
Very attentive to the weekend of November 12 and 13, 2021. Intense agenda… On Friday, November 12 at 8:30 p.m. at the Concha Segura Theater in Yecla, the "X Gala Tribute to Wine Tourism" will be held, which this year pays tribute to the people of Yecla and the groups involved in the fight against covid. A recognition to the superheroes of the pandemic. A ceremony presented by the journalist Jorge García Palomo with live music by Juan Saurín and Fer Varela and a special guest: the international comic book illustrator Salva Espín.
The famous and prestigious Murcian cartoonist who works for Marvel brings a surprise to the Yecla Wine Route. The mystery is revealed on Friday the 12th at the gala, a dynamic and creative "late night" that seeks to unite emotion and entertainment. A choral toast of hope and a look at the future celebrating life, precisely, with this expert in superheroes.
And on Saturday, November 13, apart from a symbolic institutional act by the honorees, the popular Wine Bus returns and the delicious Noche Tinta, a dinner-pairing at Los Chispos restaurant, guided this time with the show “Between Laughter and Wines” . A sensory, educational and fun experience. Questions: Would you like to learn how to taste a wine? Do you want to have good wines and tapas with friends? Do you dare with the "wine laughter therapy" (with the sommelier Cati Bustillo and the monologue of Mr. Wine Cotano)? Yes right? This is the Red Night in Yecla.
Because wine tourism experiences are always accompanied by a good mood. “We are waiting for you in Yecla so that you can enjoy our good wines”
The objective is to recover the good customs around the DO Yecla. “We look forward to seeing you enjoy our good 'Monastrell' wines at the World Wine Tourism Day. Enjoy our tribute gala, the Wine Bus, the Red Night… And whenever you want, we are here!”. Words by Aurora Picó, president of the Yecla Wine Route (Murcia).
