Miniferia del Vino

I didn’t wake up too well this Saturday morning. The night before was one that extended long after dawn. Nevertheless, Jumilla’s mini festival of wine was an event that could not be missed.  Located in the main park, Jardin Rey Don Pedro, you buy a wine glass for €3 and get to sample wines from most of the wineries in Jumilla. Starting at noon, we rushed over there an hour late. Amissa  decided to stop for coffee while I continued to the park. Half an hour passed by and Amissa was nowhere to be found. I found her twenty minutes before the event was over. We bumped into Alex and one of his student’s fathers. We were then introduced to Roque Baños, Jumilla’s adored Hollywood film score composer. We went home.

At night, there was a tamboreada that started from the Jardin del Caracol and ended in the Plaza Arriba. I followed the drummers and went home after they had reached the final point. That is all that can be recalled from that day twenty days ago.
