The Costa Blanca is a paradise which is visited by a large number of people from all over the world each year who all come in search of a new life in front of the sea at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. However, the fact that it’s next to the coast doesn’t mean it’s all about the beach and mountains, since in the province of Alicante you can enjoy a completely different kind of tourism: wine tourism. Travel through the Alicante wine route and discover its best vineyards. Not only will you get to taste this magnificent drink, but you can also make the most of this opportunity and try the varied local gastronomy of the entire area.
This wine route unites three regions under the same symbol: the vineyard. On one side, in the North, there are the regions of Marina Alta and Marina Baixa, which have the towns of Castell de Castells, Benigembla, Murla, Parcent, Alcalalí, Xaló, Llíber, Senija, Benissa, Calp and Teulada-Moraira. On the other side, in the South, there’s the region of Vinalopó, which has the towns of Algueña, Monóvar, Novelda, Petrer, Pinoso, Salinas, Sax, Villena and Elche. Follow the Alicante wine route and get swept away by the diversity and richness of its treasured vineyards.
Throughout your journey, you will taste the best wines of the province, which have a protected designation of origin. One of the wines you must try no matter what is Fondillón, completely made from the Monastrell grape which is very well known thanks to its tradition in Europe. This is a unique wine; whose production is a difficult one as it is made using old vineyards which currently have very limited availability. This is the reason behind its rarity. But if you’re a bigger fan of white wine, then we recommend you try the dry wine Marina Alta de Bocopa, an exquisite product which is made from the grape Alejandría muscatel. Those who prefer red wines are in luck because we produce an excellent pinot noir and petit verdot. Explore all the available options and enjoy an unforgettable experience thanks to this tour.
Don’t hesitate to visit the different wineries in the province. Some of them offer guided visits with the possibility of wine tasting. If you begin your itinerary at Vinalopó, the Finca Collado winery is an unmissable stop during the tour where you can discover the Mediterranean winemaking process. Meanwhile, the winery Xalo or the one in Parcent await you in the region of Marina Alta, all with reputations which precede them.
You can also make the most of this opportunity and explore and discover the local gastronomy and combine the flavours of the traditional dishes with the delicacy of the wines of Alicante. Just try resisting arroz a banda accompanied by a glass of good wine, it’s impossible! So just let yourself get swept away!
Alicante is a place with so much to offer: an idyllic environment, a renowned wine culture, a vast gastronomic richness… If you choose to live in the Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort, your dreams will become reality and you will begin a new life under the sun and in front of the sea. Don’t wait any longer and come toast with us!
