Winemakers unbelievers doubt the sound upbringing influence
"Our vision of Riesling is described in the music of Mozart. Their pieces live a nice playful elegance that communicates nice and straight, like our wines," the winemaker Reinhard Löwenstein proclaims on its website . But apart evocations to drinkers in their terroir Moselle Valley (Germany) wines themselves are also heard music.
In another valley wine, Loire, COURAULT Benoit has a sound system in the barrels, as reported by the American writer Alice Feiring wine. In South Africa, the wineries of baroque music Morgenzon maintained 24 hours a day for both strains to wine. The German violinist playing Florian Meierott emblematic pieces of German authors in ancient vineyards of Wurzburg. In mezcal distillery The Dancers, Mexican folklore sounds. Portuguese wines from Adega da Mata classic drink.
In Beronia, in La Rioja, the music is Gregorian chants. And Felix Callejo wineries in the Douro river, the wine rests in Bordeaux barrels "rocked" by Gregorian chants. In Chile, also tested the effect of monastic voices. The winemaker Aurelio Montes mounted his winery in the Colchagua Valley and a stereo speaker to wrap the barrel room and ensure that "the stock matures in a relaxing atmosphere." Montes said that "the feeling of peace and calm" also lived with musicalizado cava in Codorniu Napa wineries.
In Tuscany, both grapes and the grape live musical time. The Italian Carlo Cignozzi, owner of Il Paradiso Frassina , began encouraging the fruit of the vine and its workers armed with his accordion and walking among strains. He then launched with the University of Florence to investigate whether music could affect even fungi and parasites of the grapevine, besides enriching their maturation. Vivaldi, Scarlatti or Bach served as Cignozzi to stimulate leaf development, and energy scares Beethoven apparently grape predators.
The musical clusters seem to sprout like mushrooms in the world ... Anglo media have picked this month the "invention" of the Austrian Markus Bachman. The author does not stop photographing the object, but says it is small, light blue, miniovni shaped and inserted into the yeast ferment for stimulating sounds. "The wines mature earlier and leave more fruity" says Bachman. But their occurrence is not new. Almost ten years Jerez cellars used music created especially for wine aging pampered. The wineries have Estévez collaboration with microbiologist Aurora Sanchez Sousa , who has studied the influence of music on the wines of Jerez.
She presented her work on the influence sound in 2001 at the Pasteur Institute in Paris and has made several albums with songs based on the genetic sequence of the flower, the yeast Saccharomyces family lining the sherry in their upbringing.
"If the temperature, humidity, light or ventilation affect the quality of a wine, music can too", considered in Jerez winery.
Professional For unbelievers, musicalizar wine production is a "marketing strategy to sell more wine." I think Ignacio de Miguel: "They are telling, as underwater wine, that take us away from the consumer and reinforce the image of snobs. Winemakers are not mystics or from another planet, we are craftsmen of the earth." "I doubt that the sound waves influence the aging of wine and its quality," says Cristina Alcala, director of my wine, and ironically: "If we get a Patti Smith came to us if Mozart rebel relaxed wine?" . But he agrees, as winemaker and sommelier Josep Roca, where the celestial music puts sensitivity who drinks.
The winemaker at El Celler de Can Roca , where the cooking wine is a line of work focuses on the music of the drink itself. Has deeply studied wine and moods and influence in the soul of what goes through the mouth and sneaks by all the senses. Smell, touch, voice, images and sound stimulate energies. "The serenity, tenderness, comfort, satisfaction, positive melancholy" ... That is the language of wine investigating Josep Roca.
