Murcia’s Unspoilt Wine Region
Wine Growing Areas of Murcia
In the Region of Murcia, agriculture is a hugely important part of the economy. The coastal areas are best known for their fruit and vegetables whilst inland apricots, almonds and olives are more prevalent. The highlight however, is the 3 thriving wine producing areas in the north & west of the Region:
Bullas is home to one of Murcia's three wine producing areas. The town itself has little evidence of its key export; a casual visitor could be forgiven for missing the small museum and a handful of bodegas. However, the sparsely populated land surrounding the town boasts vineyards as far as the eye can see.
The town provides an ideal lunch stop in and around the town’s main square.
The town of Jumilla is located in the Northern “altiplano” or plateau of the Region of Murcia. Famed for its castle the town is also the most well known of the three wine areas. Wine lovers can enjoy numerous local bodegas (wine shops) and a state of the art wine museum.
The town of Yecla is the 3rd wine area located beyond Jumilla on the northern tip of the region. The town is very much a working town and the focus of wine tourism is not as apparent as Jumilla.
Our accommodation choice near Yecla is a Casa Rural (Rural Guest House), offering real character and a chance to experience first-hand a working vineyard.
