Wine is everywhere in Spain (it has the most vineyards in the world), but along the Mediterranean coast it’s a way of life. Murcia, especially, is known for its standout Monastrell and Malvasia wines, products of the three designated origins: Jumilla, Bullas and Yecla. The warm, semi-arid climate that we enjoy year-round creates a special kind of wine drinking experience, and it’s something that turns visitors into repeat visitors into residents. So, if you’re looking for luxury homes for sale in Spain, here are a few upscale golf resort properties where you can build a life surrounded by this beautiful wine culture.
