Wine route: the Region of Murcia by motorhome. Get to know up to 3 denominations of origin.

The Region of Murcia has an important gastronomic offer. Dishes that have led to this Spanish province being chosen as the Spanish Capital of Gastronomy for the year 2020. If we add to this the possibility of toasting with white, red and rosé wines rich in nuances, and, of course, from the land, we obtain experiences that even the most exquisite of sybarites would like to live.

Not all destinations have three wine routes certified by the Spanish Association of Wine Cities (ACEVIN). The Region of Murcia does: Bullas, Jumilla and Yecla. All of them make up a kingdom, 'Kingdom of the Monastrell', as this is the predominant grape. Kingdom, this one, that well deserves a getaway in your campervan rental motorhome. We tell you what to do.

 

The wine route of Bullas in campervan

Bullas is a town located in the Northwest Region of the Region of Murcia whose history has always been linked to the wine culture. It has more than 200 traditional wineries built between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and an unmistakable rural charm.

There are different tourist packages available to visitors to make the Bullas Wine Route, although it can also be done on your own. In any case, a mandatory stop is the Wine Museum, where you can take the opportunity to attend a tasting and discover how is the winemaking process from start to finish.

And once in this town, it would be a mistake not to visit the natural area of Salto del Usero, a large waterfall in a unique environment full of legends and curiosities.

Where to spend the night with your campervan near Bullas?

Although the town of Bullas does not have its own motorhome area, nearby towns do. On the one hand, in Mula, we have an overnight stay area. If what we only need is to empty and recharge, in Cehegín there is an emptying area in the local gas station.

 

The Jumilla wine route in motorhome

Its wines, its gastronomy, its gardens, its Iberian, Roman and Medieval legacy... It is impossible to choose just one reason to visit Jumilla, in the Altiplano region of the Region of Murcia. A good way to discover this town is through its Wine Route, which has different activities that adapt perfectly to every time of the year: the 'Music among wines' festival for summer nights, the 'Family Harvest' to enjoy the grape harvesting process in the most special way, cultural visits or photography contests with wine barrels as protagonists to give wings to the creativity of the participants, among others.
