Yes it’s that time of the year again – when all the bodegas in Jumilla are alive with the sound of music! When we first moved to Jumilla we thought that the idea of listening to a concert in a bodega was really cool. Four years later and we haven’t changed our minds.
Starting on Saturday May 12 in Bodegas San Isidro, there will be a concert in Jumilla every weekend until 28 July. On the programme there is music to suit all tastes: a string quartet, a choir, pop rock, jazz, our favourite flamenco group Al Golpe and many more.
Most events will be held on a Saturday evening or a Sunday lunchtime and will start with a tour of the bodega followed by the concert and, to round thing off in style, there will be a chance to sample some excellent wines accompanied by local dishes.
The exception to this will be on Friday 3 June, where our favourite Vinotería Los Chilines will be hosting the concert. Chilin (aka José María) always organises great events, so we have already reserved our tickets and are looking forward to music from Cantos Jazz Fusión and the usual mouthwatering food, washed down with some of the best Jumilla wines.
Because of the crisis the amount of sponsorship has gone down in recent years, which means the price of tickets has had to be increased. Having said that I still think that the ticket price of 20€ is a bargain, considering that you get to listen to great music, taste lots of Jumilla wines and sample delicious local food. I wonder how far £20 would go on a night out in London nowadays?!
These events are always very popular, so I would advise you to reserve your tickets either by phone or by email before they sell out.
