LA ZENIA BOULEVARD will be hosting a wine fair tomorrow that celebrates the very best wines produced across the Murcia region.
The second annual event, officially titled “II Feria Del Vino Región de Murcia”, is supported by Turespaña, the country's official tourist board.
The wine fair celebrates the primary wine routes of the Murcia region, each accredited by the Asociación Española de Cìudades del Vino, an industry body created to promote Spain's agricultural heritage and wine tourism throughout Spain.
The association supports wineries and vineyards that combine traditional wine production methods with modern technologies to produce superior wines which showcase Murcia's best natural resources.
The event brings together the three best known gastronomic wine routes of the Murcia region: Jumilla, Bullas and Yecla, and representatives from each route will be on hand to inform visitors about Ecotourism in the area.
Murcia's wine routes allow tourists and locals alike to experience Spanish wine culture by offering visits to local vineyards, with tasting sessions and an informative commentary set within the beautiful Spanish countryside.
Murcia Wine Fair, live wine tasting, a Spanish cultural experience
This weekend's Murcia wine fair will aim to replicate that experience on a somewhat smaller scale, and visitors to the shopping centre will be encouraged to taste the award-winning wines first-hand, and even participate in a game of “Wine Roulette”, to win free experiences of wine tourism in the Murcia region.
The event will highlight the superb quality and clarity of Spanish wines, with Murcia's annual wine production enjoying a greater prestige amongst connoisseurs and selective consumers, not only nationally but internationally.
One of the more original events held at Zenia Boulevard, last year's wine fair was incredibly popular, with more than 4,500 people participating in the day-long wine fair.
The Murcia wine fair takes place at Zenia Boulevard on Saturday 12th May 2018. For more information please visit the official website.
