Murcia has resumed its Wine Bus excursions in the lead up to summer. Wine lovers can once again sit back in comfort as they tour around the region’s three “denomination of origin” wine-growing areas: Bullas, Jumilla and Yecla.
The “Bus del Vino” returned to the road earlier this month, and is due to continue its tour schedule to mid-June. All the excursions are on Saturday, and they begin from Cartagena and Murcia city.
The fee of €59 per person includes transport, insurance, guided tours, bodega wine tastings, and special restaurant menus “married” with wine. More information and bookings at MurciaTuristiuca.es.
Murcia’s three wine-growing areas extend over 35,000 hectares of vineyards and nationally-categorised bodega routes.
- Bullas: 19 March, 7 May and 18 June – including visits to the Wine Museum and the Bullas 1900 Itinerary.
- Jumilla: 2 April and 21 May – including visits to the castle, Ethnographic & Science Museum and Archaeology Museum.
- Yecla: 16 April and 4 June – including guided tours of the Old Town and the Roman site at Fuente del Pinar, with its bodega dating to between the first and third centuries AD (CE).
