BARRICAS / BARRILES DE ROBLE / BARRICAS DE MADERA
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Some wineries charge an artist label certain crops. They marry painting and creating great wines. However, in essence, perhaps the music (more complex, evocative and volatile), is more able to convey the spirit of a good stock to the visual arts. This is precisely the experiment imagined by the 43rd Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival of Barcelona and the restaurant and wine shop Monvínic.

It was an improvisation but a surprising and elaborate scenery, starring Cuban pianist Omar Sosa, who lives in Barcelona and plays the piano with very long fingers, six sommeliers Monvínic-César Cánovas, Isabelle Brunet, Delia Garcia, Antonio Giuliodori, Ramiro Gutierrez and Miguel Martinez-Moliner and Empar writer. Some selected wines, another put the music and the third wrote an anthropomorphic portrait of each of the wines: strongmen or dreamers, or serene midwives elusive women emerge from each cup. Before each tasting, the vignerons describing the wine they had brought, spoke of grapes and earth and all those things that evoke a landscape. Served the cup, Sosa was bending over the keyboard. Were eight suites for eight wines in eight cups.

Sosa went from minimalism to modernism; walked trotted with sherry aftertaste with some peat, prancing with wine grapes that Moliné albarello defined as "a great lady dressed in black skinned" and assembled sonic textures when came the priory. The head of the Mas d'en Gil Clos Fonta, Marta Rovira said he left his job as aeronautical engineer in Hamburg in building the superjumbo A-380 to return to the family business.
This is the second time Monvínic made this experience, which is poised to become a classic, must be consolidated as a list in which are the best wineries, and that's what the owner intends Sergi Ferrer-Salat, which aims to that "bears the highlight of each year, the ultimate expression of our passion for spreading the culture of wine."
But this has not been the only dining experience this year has brought the Barcelona Jazz Festival. Its twinning with the Umbria Jazz Festival-cradle of fine wines and excellent olive oil-led marriage Il Tartufo, of combining the white truffle of the Italian region with the black variant of the Catalan region of Osona. Subject that Monvínic chef, Sergi of Meià, and Italian Marco Bistarelli, produced a long narrow menu.
The winemaker and sommelier Josep Roca, ally sound Monvínic on past experience, has a line of work in which the worlds of wine and music are intertwined. The winery, El Celler de Can Roca has its own soundtrack to the interpretation wines where tasting notes blend with notes of the violin. And harmony that music can bring to vineyards and wineries experienced in barrels of Tuscany, Rioja, or the valleys of Napa, Loire-et-Moselle.
