Fair of Wine and Produce [Weekend before Easter]
Mostra de Vinos en Valencia

wine fair in Valencis, SpainThe Wine Fair in Valenciahas been going annualy since 1989. It is a pre-Easter tradition, always occuring on the weekend before Easter Sunday. Anyone who produces wine or delicacies in Valencia brings them here to show to the crowds.

Essentially, it is 5 days of mega tapa eating. If you enjoy Spanish tapas, as well as the social aspect of them, this event is your dream. A whole field of stalls, each serving a wide range of wines, tapas, delicacies and sweets. Anything tasty that is produced in Valencia will be here.

The prices are great too. Entry is free and you buy 10 coupons for 10 euros. For each coupon you can get a glass of wine or a portion of food, which really does work in your favour. You normally don't get a serving of such quality for 1 euro in Valencia.

It is also a social buzz. Don't be shy and engage in the banter that accompanies tapas in Spain. On events like this, everyone is happy to talk to everyone, stranger or not. Especially after having to try so many different wines.
