Wine and Chestnut Festival
Every year in October, Yunquera honours its most traditional fruit, also a staple of local cuisine: chestnuts, along with the wine made with the grapes grown in Sierra de las Nieves.
Roasted, preserved in syrup, baked, glazed or just picked from the tree, chestnuts are delicious. If you wash them down with a fine wine, the feast for your senses is complete. Add a lively atmosphere and bands of verdiales, and you will understand why hundreds of out-of-towners head for Yunquera during the festival.
A market with more than 20 different stalls offers visitors artisan products from the sierras: strawberries, pork cuts, olive oil and traditional pottery. Activities include a cooking competition, grape stomping, and cookouts of Yunquera"s most typical dish, malcocinao, a stew with chickpeas, bacon, tripe, sausage and black pudding.
