One unrelenting thing about summer is the desire to have fun. The warm sun, the longer days, thoughts of holidays — it all creates a vibe, a vibe called summer. And the Appellation of Origin Navarre will be present at numerous summer activities organized by the city of Pamplona during the month of August.
There will be special wine and food pairings, up until midnight at the Citadel — which will be turned into a virtual Gastrobar! Of course, nothing goes on in Pamplona without a bit of music, so there will be blues, soul, jazz and more. Come sip, eat and listen — all in the warm night air of Pamplona.
The price? Six -6 – euros. Unbelievable. Available for tasting will be white wines, rosé, reds and sweet wines accompanied by the region’s special cheeses: Idiazábal and Roncal.
The wineries: Macaya, Sada, Valcarlos, Malon Echaide, Inurrieta,Prince of Viana, Orvalaiz, Chivite, Sarria, Vega del Castillo, Piedmont, Ochoa,Nekeas, Beramendi, Irache Urabain, Monjardin, Marco Real, Otazu and Araiz.
To complete the week, the four Saturdays of the month of August will be held “The Wall of Candles.” This is a musical performance tour guided by candlelight. Attendees will enjoy tapas and Navarra wine. Also just 6 euros.
