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.      http://provinoac.org/

    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 http://provinoac.org/ 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.
