Selectus Wines October-December 2020

Special places of unique beauty. Gorgeous, well-designed objects that strike the eye. Lands and seas that offer us their good, honest produce. There are those who know how to find these places, appreciate these objects, and enjoy this bounty of the land and sea. Selectus Wines is aimed at these people and the establishments they frequent. Uniqueness, beauty, distinction, finesse and well-being can also be expressed through wine and the vineyards they hail from. We seek out, select and describe these wines for the enjoyment of these discerning consumers. Lugares con belleza singular, que son especiales. Objetos que destacan por su capacidad de atracción y por su diseño, que son llamativos. Tierras y campos, mares y océanos que ofrecen sus más sinceros y honestos productos. Personas que saben encontrar esos lugares, que saben llevar esos objetos, que saben apreciar esas vituallas. Para todos ellos y para los lugares en los que se sienten cómodos, se escribe Selectuswines. La singularidad, la belleza, la distinción, la finura, el bienestar pueden, también, expresarse a través de los vinos y sus parajes. Los descubrimos, los seleccionamos, los bebemos y los describimos para que la gente con sensibilidad los pueda disfrutar.

AMID THE UNCERTAINTY… Since the last issue of Selectus Wines, our industry has been having a bit of a hard time. For a while, it looked as if the restaurants, bars and hotels were returning to a decent level of activity that was cause for optimism. However lately, and I guess due to the relaxation of restrictions in August, it seems we are back to square one and we will again see the capacity of these establishments reduced and the consumption of wine with it... We asked the Spanish Wine Board to give us their outlook for the wine industry. Over the summer they launched a campaign to support the hospitality sector and a second wave is due this October. In this issue, you can read how they see the industry evolving…

LIGHTS & SHADE All the variety, all the charm, all the beauty of life lies in its light and shade. Those hidden places, whose individuality is impressive, also possess a kind of enchantment which can be felt in the landscape. In the same way, that which they encapsulate, when viewed with respect, can be unforgettable, unrepeatable, inimitable. The full weight of history and the knowledge accumulated over the generations produce, with experience, a human being capable of reaching the next level of excellence in any endeavour, among which, of course, is winemaking. Amongst these lights and shadows...the power of evocation. The taste of memory. That legacy passed down to us by our ancestors. Everything they learned, granted as a precious gift transmitted by those who seek to create flavours associated with a culture…

mas del serral, in the heart of penedés

MAS DEL SERRAL, EN EL CORAZÓN DEL PENEDÉS Donde nacen y se elaboran los espumosos Raventós i Blanc There is an estate on the outskirts of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, in the Penedés region, owned by a family of winegrowers that represents one of the longest winemaking traditions in Europe and, therefore, the world. This 90-hectare estate has vineyards, woods and a lake, and its winery lies in the centre. It is the estate where the Raventós i Blanc sparkling wines are born and produced. This estate marked the beginning of the production of sparkling wine in Spain, when Josep Raventós Fatjó created the first sparkling wine using the Champenoise method with grapes from these vineyards; and where later, in 1888, Manuel Raventós Doménech created the first coupage using only native varieties - Macabeu, Xarel·lo…
