Event Details

On September 16th, 2009, there will be a screening on the native Spanish grape, Bobal at Citilab in Barcelona from 7-9pm. In collaboration with Catavino, Citilab and Sommelier Alumni, the documentary will be followed by a Bobal tasting with wines from both Utiel Requena and neighbouring Manchuela afterwards.

The event is an opportunity to experience Zev Robinson's 2008 documentary on the production of wine using the relatively unknown Bobal grape in the Utiel-Requena region. Although the film focuses on one specific area, various themes - the transition of bulk wine to quality bottled wine, falling grape prices, regionalism and marketing - are common across much of Spain.

Organised and presented by Catavino and Citilab, the event will be a demonstration of using social media to promote wine. Catavino, one of the top international wine blogs will both promote and cover the event on their website dedicated to Iberian wine. There will also be a live twitter tasting, with sommeliers offering their opinions, and consequently, drawing in an international audience.

Alex Duran of SommelierAlumni will present the Bobal wines, and some Bobal wines will be selected and made available at Neyras Vins.

The participating wineries to date are:

  • Pagos del Molino
  • Finca Sandoval
  • Bodegas Torroja
  • Pago de Tharsys
  • Vera de Estenas
  • Finca Ardal
  • Vereda Real

with more to follow.

Entry is free, but tickets must be reserved at http://bobal.eventbrite.com/

EN ESPANOL

El día 16 de Septiembre 2009 desde a las 19:00 hasta a las 21:00,  proyección de “La Bobal y otras historias del vino” de Zev Robinson en Citilab de Barcelona. Le seguirá una cata de vinos de Bobal de las regiones de Utiel-Requena y Manchuela, en colaboración con Catavino, Citilab y Sommelier Alummni.

Este evento es una oportunidad para ver la película de Zev Robinson sobre la producción de vinos con la variedad Bobal. A pesar de estar centrado en una región específica (Utiel-Requena), la película trata aspectos comunes a muchas zonas españolas: la transición de granel a vino embotellado, la caída del precio de la uva, regionalismo y marketing, etc.

Organizado y presentado por Catavino y Citilab, el acto será una demostración de cómo se promocionan los vinos utilizando los nuevos medios, como blogs de vino, twitter, facebook entre otros. Catavino, uno de los bloggers de vino más importantes a nivel internacional, promocionarán y cubrirán el evento en su página web sobre el vino ibérico. Habrá también una cata en directo a través de twitter donde los sumilleres difundirán su opinión sobre la Bobal a una audiencia internacional.

Alex Duran de SommelierAlumni presentará los vinos de Bobal. Paralelamente a este evento, los vinos estarán a la venta en la tienda especializada  Neyras Vins.

Las bodegas participantes hasta la fecha son:

  • Pagos del Molino
