Viva La Vino

Murcian Bodegas

We visited ” Vinaelena Bodegas in Jumila and it is worth the journey.

This is a family run business originally started by their grandfather in 1948. Making wine using a modest winepress in his home. Their father Paco Pacheco continued the tradition and expanding the business into the hands of the now third generation.

The tour takes you through the wine making process and it is very informative, tasting the grapes on the vine. We finished the tour by enjoying sampling the wine paired with cheeses and serrano ham.

A excellent selection at a very reasonable price. We came home with 6 bottles to enjoy over the rest of our time in Spain.

Time well spent.

Rules for travel to Europe after brexit

As March 29th draws closer it maybe useful for those considering travel to Spain and other European destinations to seek advice if you are a British passport holder and if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

Taking the time to plan for your trip before booking travel arrangements is wise and avoids potential disappointment.

We suggest checking both adult and child passports to ensure they meet the new rules that apply if the UK leaves the UK without a deal after 29 March 2019.
