It has been an amazing week filled with lots of events and as we say at Bernavi every event is really just catching up with friends!
We were very lucky to receive a visit from the technical staff of the television program “Entre Vinyes” which turned out to be an unforgettable experience. The program of the national channel "La 2" of TVE dedicated an episode to Terra Alta and we had the honour of being amongst the wineries chosen to be recorded. Francesc, Xavier, Jordi, Isabel, Xavi were the friendly and professional staff who belonged to the show and they accompanied a group of our guests during their visit to BERNAVÍ, where they saw our beautiful vineyards and tasted all the exciting flavours of our wines. As our luck would have it the weather decided it wanted to join us, but in the end it was a perfect day. Amazed by the naturalness of the staff of Entre Vinyes and thanks to the sympathy of the group, we began to lose the "stage fright" and we found ourselves in front of the cameras as if it were something we do every day ... explaining our terroir, our history, our wines, it was an afternoon full of excitement and laughter, and at the end of the day we celebrated with a little party on the terrace overlooking the vineyards and in the company of our new friends.
We also were lucky enough to face the media again so soon and during a meeting about tourism in Terra Alta, we recorded a radio interview on Catalunya Infrmació: together with Josep Maria from Nou Moderno, where we explained our vision about wine tourism and we promoted the exciting and upcoming activities that BERNAVÍ will do in the near future.

By the end of the week we celebrated the Summer Solstice with an event that was incredible! With Maria Rosa and Josep Maria from Nou Moderno, we organized a tasting of our wines paired with some unusual sweet whims! We did it by night, with the light of the fires and the moon full of positive energy, in the yard of our winery, surrounded by vineyards and accompanied by a fantastic line-up of Jazz music. Xavi, Josep Enric, Laura, Imma and Rafa played in perfect harmony letting the fires dance with each note played. We served NOTTEBIANCA 2012 with a fresh cheese (Mato), quince jelly, toasted hazelnuts and caramelized sugar; 21VENTUNO 2012 paired with a delicious strawberry ice cream and fresh cherries; 3D3 2011 was best suited with a rich dark chocolate brownie with nuts and crisp orange; CA'VERNET 2011 was curiously but perfectly paired with an apple tart with Catania (cocoa-covered almonds). To round off the night Josep Maria delighted us with a beautiful Gin and tonic cocktail, the Gin being developed with inflorescences of grapes, perfectly in tune with the season of the vineyards; the cocktail was paired with a pannacotta with lime, cinnamon and apricot puree. All pairings were perfect and our guests enjoyed the night of the Summer Solstice.

Lastly we celebrated the master's touch of our friend Rafel: our own illuminated logo inaugurated on the 21th!


...In Vino Vivendo!!!
