Cata del Vino - Wine Fest 2019
Cordoba celebrates the region’s quality wine - and you are invited to join the annual Cata del Vino wine fest. So come, taste and enjoy.
The so-called Campiña, a rural area some 30 miles south of Cordoba, is an area renowned for its excellent wines. The famous Montilla-Moriles wines are well-respected even beyond Spain’s borders.
The most notable wines include Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, Cream, Pedro Ximénez and Blanco joven. While maturing in oak barrels, there is a veil of yeast on the surface (velo de flor) precluding oxidation and therefore giving the wines their characteristic and unparalleled taste.
Participating wineries and cellar door operations, as well as plus taverns and restaurants make sure there is plenty to know about wine and - of course - to enjoy.
This year, as many as 27 wineries and ten taverns and restaurants present themselves on the wine fest.
The 2019 edition of the wine fest is dedicated to the 450th anniversary of the death of Saint Juan de Ávila who spent a substantial part of his life in the town of Montilla.
