Conchas y Vino Nuevo Fest 2017

Festival de Conchas y Vino Nuevo last Sunday, 23 April, at Hotel Coral brought out the best from talented local chefs and wineries.  Finally enjoyed Lechuza chardonnay first sips, yum.  I have only missed this party once(2016) in ten years.  It is usually in early April.  Here are some highlights of the day(click to enlarge):




Chef Ryan Steyn’s sushi oyster was the most bold and creative bite.  If you are not a fan of oysters and mussels(ostiones y mejiollenes), this fiesta is not for you.  Ok, you can go if you enjoy unlimited samplings of wine.  The event is always on a Sunday, noon -5PM.  Some food runs out around 3.

    I have to agree w/Bernies brother, prices are always apprieciated and how does it work? Pay an entranced fee and eat and/or drink as much as you want, get chits to trade for samples, or pay for each tid-bit?

      Tickets are bought through and usually start selling approx February. Entry ticket gets you all you can drink and eat and includes spiffy wine glass for your quaffing. This year’s cost was approx $40USD.
