The links of Cehegin with wine go back since time immemorial. From the 16th century Cehegín was, together with Bullas, an important agricultural area for the production of vineyards and a very important wine producer. Already in the 17th century it was known as the wine cellar of the Kingdom of Murcia. Nowadays Cehegín belongs to the production area protected by the Denomination of Origin Bullas, being a great number of the wineries of this denomination located within its municipal district.
In this free guided tour you will be able to visit one of these wineries, Bodegas Carreño. The meeting point will be the Plaza del Alpargatero in the city centre at 11.30 am.
