Who said Wednesdays were boring? Every Wednesday has its charms but especially now in summer, they’re the best. And here’s why!
At Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol we are fortunate in being surrounded by nature, the sea and some incredible towns and villages. Towns blessed with history, culture and traditions, and of course, great cuisine. A cuisine which at Marina Alta, stands out with its spectacular vineyards, renowned for their quantity, quality and beauty.
At VAPF we have always supported cultural events in the vicinity of Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. And your stay there can be full of variety with some wide ranging activities. With that in mind, this summer we present Melicatesen. We are sponsoring this event, to be held every Wednesday throughout July and August, and its basic premise is simply, wine and music. Sounds good, right?
As well as helping to promote the vineyards and wineries in the area and supporting oenology and wine production, clients will also be able to enjoy a pleasant evening of musical entertainment. The scenario varies from week to week as do the musicians. Here is some more information about these Wednesday events which could well become a top date in your weekday schedule.
This month, Melicatesen continues its route and so, on 4 August this week, we’ll be making a detour to the M de Alejandría winery. The guided visit in Teulada can be followed in Spanish, English and French. This winery grows the Muscat of Alexandria grape which is from Africa. And the fact is there is no better place than the Mediterranean for cultivating that characteristic sweet fruity taste.
Following the visit, and during the ensuing tapas and wine tasting, the the strings of classical guitar will provide the soundtrack for a truly memorable evening. Carlos Gardel tangos, or music by composers such as Francisco Tárrega, Fernando Sor, Falla and Albéniz are just some of the melodies in the repertoire of classical guitarist Miquel Pérez Perelló.
We had no idea that music could marry quite so well with wine, but you can try it for yourself this summer in Melicatesen. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to make sure you don’t miss any of our news or events.
