These activities are known for keeping the productive objectives in a second term, and focus on fortify relations, create a good atmosphere and synergies. In this sense, the S2 sales team that manages the areas of “l’Eixample” and “Ciutat Vella”, met on November 13 for a wine tasting in a unique setting: the Circle of the Lyceum, in the emblematic theatre of Barcelona.

More than 30 consultants with its director and assistants attended the event to learn how to taste different wines and discover different styles and grape varieties. To train the smell, they did a little competition between small groups in which they had to identify different aromas that come from spices, fruit or herbs. A group meal was scheduled in same area.The wine selection for the occasion was composed of little big wines from their respective areas to promote comparison between those.

4 wines were selected with the following characteristics:

  • Maria Rigol Ordi Gran Reserva 2008: classic profile of Brut Nature Cava with a long aging of more than six years, while retaining an enviable acidity that gives freshness. A cava that will give much to talk in the future, that certainly represents the great discovery of the area in 2014. 
  • Gran Caus Blanc 2012: A mixture of Xarel•lo, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, with a young elaboration, however, thought for a long aging in bottle. A classic Penedes with a personality that is worth its sucess.
  • Vins i Llegendes 2011: Composed of Grenache and Carignan, this wine with great personality, ground aromas, ripe red fruits, spices and a final toasted note which comes from a small winery that aims to tell the legends of the region through their wines.
  • The Montesa 2012: The great winemaker Alvaro Palacio delights us with this wine Rioja which is not composed by the common specie of grape of the area (tempranillo); Instead, he uses Garnacha variety. It is elegant, subtle, light but with character.
